Broken Hearts – The Loss of Love

By on Jan 6, 2014 in Animal Adoption | 2 comments

Have you ever had a broken heart? Felt rejected? Confused? Have you ever been in a relationship where you felt totally in-love, safe, and that it was forever? You felt that the two of you were meant to be and you just couldn’t spend enough time with him or her, right? You were loyal, affectionate, and demonstrated your love everyday….. Then without warning, you suddenly were cast aside for any number of reasons. “It just wasn’t working out.” “I want my space.” “I’m moving away.” “You’re too needy.” Etc. You get the idea, and the resulting shock and heartache is almost unbearable. You think it over and rethink it, yet it makes no sense.   Well, now go into the mind of an innocent animal that felt true devotion to someone, and maybe a family of someones to only be cast aside one day. They can’t think...

I had seen Pudge on as I was searching for just the right kitty to adopt and bring into my home. I had always been a bit partial to orange cats so while looking daily at many kitties, I came across little Pudgie’s picture and though he had a lot more white on him than I was looking for, I found myself returning to his page over and over again. I made arrangements with Lisa Shackett from Mary’s Kitty Korner to meet Pudge, so my mom and I were off to see if we’d be taking him...

Giving Animals as Gifts

The Holidays are upon us again, and I can’t help but think of all the well-meaning parents who would like to surprise their children with some type of pet as a gift. As much as the reactions of the children are awesome, it comes down to just not being a great idea. First, a gift is generally viewed as an object to be used for awhile and then pushed aside once the newness and the thrill is gone. Second, gifts usually come with the option of being returnable. It might have a flaw, not a favorite color, or just plain not in the mood for such an item.  An animal that is brought into one’s home is going to have flaws, require daily care and attention,  maybe not a perfect specimen of its breed, or might even be a breed or type of animal that does not fit into the family’s lifestyle. Any animal should be brought into our homes as a family decision where each member has met...
