This forum is such an amazing source of support. I take comfort in knowing that there are so many people out there who love their cats dearly. I work at a wonderful animal shelter where the calls come in each day from people who have every excuse imaginable about why they "need" to give up their cats and dogs. Many people will provide the excuse that they are moving or that they have become suddenly allergic to the cat they've had for more than a decade. But there are people who are honest enough to say they're tired of the shedding, or sick of the hairballs, or the cat has been eliminating outside of the box, or the kids have lost interest, or the cat is in kidney failure or is diabetic...... It's enough to make an animal lover give up on people. But the people who share on this list serve as a reminder that there are wonderful people out there. That knowledge makes it so much easier to get through each day.
Thank you to every one of you. Adrienne -----Original Message----- From: Gloria B.
