You're among like-minded people in this group - just this afternoon, I was
sitting with a few cats in my lap, a dog next to me, watching the horrors
happening in Japan.  I looked over at one of our cats who looks just like
our old Houdini who die in November....suddenly, I started tearfully
remembering details of almost ALL the cats that have died in my
lifetime....now, I have a headache.

Thanks, Bonnie,
Yes, Amber and I have a connection now but I am very tender hearted and know
it 
will be painful if her health gets bad.  We had to have our Great Dane put
down 
five years ago and I STILL get teary eyed about that. He had cardio myothapy
and 
an parasitic infection.
It does warm my heart to see Amber safe, well fed, and adjusting to her new 
surroundings. She won't "play" yet, but maybe that will come..
Jannes

You will get (if you haven't already) loads of really great and helpful
advice 
from this group.
Personally, I would say, if you have a heart-connection with Amber (which it

certainly seems you do) and you are willing to help her enjoy whatever life
she 
had on earth, Go For It!
You may be pleasantly surprised by the outcome.  And Amber surely will be!
Peace,
Bonnie
