Tabatha's been adopted and other updates...

Its been an interesting couple of weeks in my animal kingdom. Tabatha was adopted last saturday morning by a nice family while she was in the cattery at SPCA Selangor. She is ready for spaying in a couple of weeks so she will be back for that. We all really miss her. She has a larger than life personality and my apartment feels wayyyyy too peaceful now.

Miko is able to do his business on his own now and has a litter box which he diligently uses. He totters around on shaky little legs and invades Tamago's bed. His teeth have grown in and he can eat canned kitten food or moistened kibble although he still prefers his milk bottle. He doesn't know how to drink water so I've had to force him to drink water through a syringe. I hope he will be ready for adoption to a good home in about 6 weeks.

I didn't mention this before but Noel was adopted a few weeks ago. Yay for him! He was adopted by a nice young lady who has another little kitten.

Spike is adjusting to life without Tony Montana. It's only been about 5 weeks since Tony Montana passed away and he is so deeply missed. It is a great comfort to us that he died peacefully at home of natural causes. Spike's dad and I have been showering him with gifts of toys and treats and plenty of loving. He's never been an only dog before and I think he is quite lonely now. Spike and I will have this whole Friday together though because its a public holiday and Spike and I will be working at the SPCA booth at an event in Bangsar. It'll be a nice outing for me and my pooch.
Tony M loved his car rides. He loved watching the world. I miss him.
One of the few pics of me with both Spike and Tony.. Tony was sniffing something.. oh well..

Toys can't replace Tony but we hope to distract Spike from his loss.

Tomorrow is the first anniversary of Molly's death. I can't believe its been a year. It still hurts so much. I miss her everyday and I think about how happy she was when we were all still together. One big happy family. Then I think about all she went through and how miserable she was at the end and I feel sick and my heart aches. I feel a tightening in my chest that can only be the pain of loss and guilt. i have to say this, i care, i care a lot about all these animals but i wish i didn't anymore. i don't want to. i can't stand it when things don't work out.

Molly's smile.

I completely understand what it is like to still feel hurt and sorrow about your pet's passing. Sending you all the warmest thoughts and lots of blessings for the good things you do for animals to this day.

Please don't feel guilty. You do so much for all the animals--look how many lives you save! I know how much it hurts to lose one and the more animals we help, the more we stand to lose. But we've just got to keep going and keep rejoicing in the lives we are able to help. Lots of warmth and hugs--

Oh, yay! I'm so happy Ms. Tabatha found a home. The moment you start to feel blue, look at the animals who are living out happy lives now, all thanks to you. Big, encouraging hugs to you... :-)

I know how you feel. I still miss Lewis so much. And Allegra my sweet baby before I lost Lewis. And Masala who was with me for eighteen joy filled years. I still miss all of them.But I know I gave them a type of love I will never give any other life form.And they loved me in return. Truly.Madly.Deeply.And that is worth something. Something immeasurable.Look at all the animals you have helped find love. And remember all the love they gave you.Love is the only lasting thing here on earth. Life is random, arbitrary, imperfect.Love is what we are meant to dwell on. To hold close.To remember.

Purrs, kisses and tail waggins from all the critters.XOXOXO

Yes it hurts so much when it does not go well. But look at how many you have saved, that would not have been alive if not for you.
