not everything in life is happy


And you can not win them all.

Sadly I got the call today.  Poor Spooky (aka Beatrice) was euthanized this morning.  It kills me a little because the last time I saw her she was so happy and robust.  Now she hadn't eaten well since last Tuesday and had been vomiting, so I'm sure she was no longer...

well lets just not go there.

I am pretty sure I knew this was coming as much as I wanted to deny it.  Friday I saw a rare snow rainbow.  It was really quite interesting, because it was snowing to my right, but not to the left, and while it was faint, it was there.  This is not my image..

Thank you darlin for gracing my days and letting me pat your belly..

 I didn't want to use her given name on this blog, because she was owner surrendered and I wasn't sure if the owner would be looking for information on her or not.  My blog has been linked by the shelter in the past, and I figured a bit of anonymity (yea, but I used pictures, so I probably was a bit silly in this) might not be a bad thing.  But I couldn't seem to call her anything other then Spooky off this blog (as much as I wanted to, I didn't think that was an appropriate name for her cause she was anything but spooky.. *smile*)

She came to me with a file half a ream thick.  Despite her outward appearance and wonderful demeanor she came with history.  I'm sure the stress of being given up was the straw..

*sigh*

and just to add a little smile to this sad morning.. When I did a search for "snow rainbow" to find an image, I found this.  No, seriously, this... 
This puts an end to the 2011 fostering season.. and thus begins Kitten Watch 2012.  Any bets when the first kittens come in?  (I'll mention there is probably a foot of snow out there)

  12. Oh, Connie, nothing can be said to take away that terrible feeling when you lose one. Only time can do that.

    Besides your tender care, she received a wonderful gift: a beautiful, thoughtful name for a well-loved kitty.

    The names we bestow are important and live on after us.
