It was the same with my Annie. When her owner who was in hospice learned that they had found her a good home, she passed the next day. She knew her baby was safe so she could go. If I di not have a safe haven for my babies to go to, I guess I wuld just have to NOT die. If I did not know thy would be secure and safe, I would not rest in peace. I think I would be like Annie's owner was. If you cannot find her a good home, put her to sleep. Any port in a storm is not a good port, it has to be safe and secure.
