A blog about life in the moment and how to deal with it -

Wednesday, May 08, 2013

We live in a city that has a no kill, no judgment shelter. So why does the Mr find two baby (3 weeks, maybe) kitties in a box on the side of the street? My heart is so heavy and sad. I rushed them down to the Pet Food Express, due our Vet Clinic and Shelter being closed, and those fine folks stepped up and without question donated ALL the supplies necessary to get me & those babies through the night - well over a $100 worth of products. They bottle fed both babies before I left the store too. What does a soft hearted, animal loving woman do ... scream, cry and love like she never has before. *OVERWHELMED*

All my pent up emotions came flooding to the service once the Mr went to bed. Ya, he has to be up at 4:15 a.m. so I'm the one caring for the wee ones. They are napping now that their little tummies are full.

It really does pain my heart to know that we have to turn them over to the shelter. It really pains my heart to know people can toss away animals.
It really pains my heart to know my two boys - Irie and Road - are stressed tonight because there really is something in the bathroom.

I guess I'll cry a little more and know that within a few hours I'll have to say good bye to two little guys that instantly stole my heart. Sometimes doing the right thing hurts ...

    You (and your "Mr.") are very loving. I hate to see animals being mistreated and thrown away like garbage. I hope they find a good home, they are adorable. emoticon

    DH and I rescued a kitten a couple years back and it was wrenching. But our cats hated the little guy and we found a good home for him almost immediately. You did the right thing, KT, and I'm sure the little fluffballs will find good homes quickly. As for hating your spouse temporarily because you're sleep deprived, don't feel bad - night feedings do that to all of us at one time or another. :)

    We have also taken care of baby kittens!! It is so sad!! It was a lot of work (4 kitties) but it was worth every second!!! The next time it was for just one kitty. It was so hard when we gave them to their new forever homes as I had grown to love each one of them. Bless you for having such a wonderful and kind heart to care for these little innocent animals. emoticon (I have pics of a few of them on my spark page)
