Rosie tells her Love Story
“We spent all the money we had getting her to this point but we could go no further. Your donors are true lifesavers. This gift of giving our sweet girl the chance she needs is truly life changing for us. Thank you for caring about Rosie and about us!”
Have you heard that black cats are bad luck? Evil? Bring misfortune?
Well, rubbish! I think that might be how I ended up in a scary field all alone when I was only two months old.
Luckily my soon-to-be Mom heard me crying from her apartment window. She found me and fed me and got rid of those nasty biting bugs. I’ve been her shadow ever since!
No jokes about black shadows please. SHE loves that I follow her everywhere and snuggle up against her every chance I get. So do I. And I tell her constantly that I love her.
Actually, I tell her lots of things. She needs frequent instructions. But that’s good, I think. I’ve heard her tell her friends that it’s hard to be sad or anxious when you’ve got a cat talking your ear off.
So, she got pretty worried when I stopped chittering at the birds and yelling for my breakfast. There was this weird cold virus thing going through our household. I was the last to get it but I got hit HARD. I had to open my mouth to breathe. I couldn’t smell so I stopped eating. Then I felt all shriveled up (dehydration they called it) and I started losing weight. I got sores in my mouth. Worst of all, I didn’t want to talk or cuddle.
My Mom took me to the emergency room. They put me in a cage where there were lots of beeps and whirs. They stuck a thing in my arm and another up my nose. I had to stay there for five whole days. When Mom came to visit me all I could do was to lie in her arms and shake.
But now I’m home!! I still can’t breathe real well, or eat, and all I do is sleep. But I sleep on my Mom and I KNOW I’m going to get all better.
From Rosie’s Mom:
Having Ellie’s cover the cost of putting in Rosie’s feeding tube meant she could come home to heal! She can now ride out this virus and regain her functioning without the stress of being in the hospital. We spent all the money we had getting her to this point but we could go no further. After all this, we were going to have to say goodbye. I don’t think I could’ve lived with myself but we absolutely had no more options.
Your donors are true lifesavers. This gift of giving our sweet girl the chance she needs is truly life changing for us. Thank you for caring about Rosie and about us!
