A renter we have here was asked to vacate after harassing other guests. Within 48 hours, my cat and dog died, the same way pretty much. Convulsions, spasms, foaming at mouth, couldn't walk. We suspect he poisioned them both since he knew they were ours, and they were outside small animals that used to go to everyone, very friendly.
Scarlet had as a pup been rescued from a guy that was getting rid of his dogs puppies by shooting them. Scarlet had a bullet hit her square on the top of her head (hair would not grow there). She was rescued, and I found great joy with this dog that loved me, sought me out so often, would come running up to me to brighten my day. She was so sweet....
So my daughter has lost her three best friends in a matter of weeks.
We are helping to press charges and working with a detective to get him out.
Today, despite everything, I am trying to continue on my journey. Next monday is the seminar for surgery.
I will keep praying for strength. I have realized that you cannot let things like this consume you. It is horrible, but you cannot make anyone care or have compassion. The authorities are cold, but they have a job to do, and there will never be real justice until the kingdom arrives.
Explain that to a six year old though, it's not easy... mean people exist. This is the world we live in.
