The Lucky One

Week after week some cats are passed by in the cattery. Some maybe don't "sell themselves" when the opportunity arises, others sadly are just not the right colour!!! (No comment!)  Others like Pasha (previously known as Snowy?) are a lot more fortunate.She has been in a short time and is going in to be neutered tomorrow, pending a home check she has a home waiting for her. Lucky lucky girl, sadly her black one eyed partner Thomas has not been so lucky!

Meet Pharaoh

This rather unusual little man came in from the pound last week. He is now well settled in a foster home full of dogs and cats, so at least we know he's safe with other dogs and indifferent to cats! We believe he is a Whippet x Staffie and is probably 8-10 months old. Though he came in in poor condition I hear he is improving daily.
I'm sorry for the shortness of this blog, I will try harder later in the week. The death of my 6 year old German Shepherd Dog Kai yesterday, has left me in pieces. He was diagnosed with lymphoma last Friday and given 2 - 3 months to live. I feel cheated of the time we should have had left together and loosing him so young has left me heartbroken.

Oh Rhian, I've not met you nor Kai but I feel your loss. You have so much love to give so many animals that come into your care, so Kai was blessed to have had you for his short life. Take care . Sue xx

Thank you for posting - there's no need to apologise for the shortness! Sad to hear about Kai :( I'm sure he had a good life with you, and that's really all we pet owners can do.

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear about your dog, Kai. I lost my beautiful GSD (my Freshfield's friend!) over 10 years ago now but I remember the pain of that loss all too well. I regularly used to dream of being with her and in my dream I'd always think 'Wow, she's not dead at all' - it was like real time together and it always left me feeling great. I still dream of her now and then. I hope Kai visits you in your dreams too. X

Ah Rhian, I am so sorry to hear about your dog, that is so tragic, and I remember you talking about your GSs and how much you love them. When we lost our last dog I was devastated but we did a few weeks with him after his diagnosis. Keep up the good work at Freshfields. our twin kittens (AVW ones) Alfie and Evie are doing great and are quite big now and very lively and cute. Take care. Vicki x
