Well, one of the hardest things I have had to do for a long time, I had to bring our kitty, Angel, to the pound. We don't have money to get her fixed and while she is in heat she has many many "accidents" all over the house. I have gotten so frustrated and I guess the straw that broke the camel's back was when she pooped on Joshua's foot the other night. Since then, we took the weekend to think it over and make sure it was what we wanted to do. In that time I cleaned up about 5 more messes and realized, this is just too much! I have been so discouraged about it because I really do feel responsibility to any animal we are to take in to our home. We all really loved her and it was hard for everyone. Especially Adam I think but he could see there was a real problem too and there just wasn't the money to get her fixed and just hope that the problem would stop. So, I took her in and the ladies at the pound said, "oh don't worry, she will be adopted soon, she is really beautiful!" And I felt like grabbing her back because she is so stinking pretty that I didn't wanna get rid of her. I almost cryed while signing the papers. But as I left the pound, I took a sigh of relief. I am finally free of the messes and all that work! She was gorgeous and great with the kids but I can't have my house getting wrecked to keep a pretty kitty.
We took Angel in one day when a neighbor brought her to us. She had found her and Angel was close to death. We took her and bathed her, fed her. In the next days we had to get flea meds, ear mite meds, polysporine for her eye infections, and worm pills as se had brought all these things into the house. I was frustrated but soon grew to love her. She grew up and the kids have loved every minute of her. Well, we took a sick little kitty and got her well and big, now she can be a kitty for someone else. I told them at the pound that she needs to be fixed and that she has accidents when she is in heat so they wrote that on the paper work. I am glad I was honest and now another family will really know what they are getting. Also, they don't kill the cats after any amount of time except if they get sick. I asked them to call us when she gets adopted so we can tell the kids. I pray someone finds her and loves her soon. What a hard day.
