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!
