Shelagh....WHY WHY WHY do people get pets, then neglect them and let them suffer?? If I had a brick to throw, I swear....
I showed your photos to Marc and read him your posts, (and we were so thrilled and happy to see Dusa's after photo, looking so wonderful!) and then we saw Morry. We could barely stand to see the photos of poor Morry, looking so weak and sick.
Then Marc just about fell out of his chair with anger and sadness when I read him the part about the Fun with Rottweiler and Baby Rat game (grrrrrrr) and he got so upset (as well as I) that people are that barbaric and uncaring toward animals. You think we'd get used to hearing that stuff, but we never get used to it.
Sigh...that last photo of Morry getting scritched and looking so..relieved, and calm, just made me cry, but in a good way.
That being said, now that I have vented, we are SO incredibly happy that your new arrivals have all found care, good food, love, warmth and a safe haven to be happy in and to heal their wounds, both physical and mental.
And I wish all the best for all of them. Please give special kisses to Morry for Marc and I and let him know he is loved from afar...waaaay out here in Seattle. I want to pick Morry up and just love him for hours. If I could, I would put my face into his fur, nuzzle him and rub him and whisper to him that everything is okay now and he is safe and loved. Well, I am going to tear up again, so I will stop. Kisses and cuddles to all your new kids Shelagh.
