Hello again

Hi kids,

It's been over a year.

While many creatures were let go since last posting, it was not an experience that I felt was worth sharing.

I have since returned to a position similar to the one that inspired the creation of this blog in the first place. So, without further ado...

  • An ownerless hamster that had wet tail that just wasn't healing.
  • A fifteen year old tabby cat. She could barely breathe. After she passed and her head was lowered, much fluid ran out of her nose. I'm guessing it was a pleural effusion, possibly from heart failure.

    On November 3 we had to put down our beloved 12 year old tabby. She had a lime-sized tumour in her stomach and the cancer had also metastasized to her liver & lymph nodes. She hadn't even presented any symptoms up until a week before she died. It was such a shock and the hardest thing I have ever done. Thank you for this blog.

    My roommate was once a vet's assistant for two years and ocassionally lent a hand during the ''euth'ing process' - her words. It's true that those who benefit from a surfeit of compassion are the most suited for this unenviable job. Fifteen years later she eventually became a vegan and an animal rights activist.

    You must be a very kind and intuitive person to do what you do. :-)
