Happy Sunday, Dear Readers!

Last night was a tough one.  Our 4 month old kitten, Sabrina, was sick, & we had to run her to the emergency vet.  Thankfully, it turned out not to be anything terribly serious- she has a very nasty ear infection, & may be deaf in her right ear from it.  It’s also given her a nasty case of vertigo.  Since she’s so young, if that happens, she’ll adapt- cats are so flexible!  Also thankfully, today she is doing better already.  Still not up to par, of course, but improving fast.  I am so grateful to God for taking care of my baby girl!!

While we were at the vet last night, a lady brought in her small dog who had been attacked.  The dog died almost immediately.  This poor lady wandered the hospital, holding her dead dog, wailing in her grief.  My heart just broke for her.  I’m telling you this for a couple of reasons..

First, please pray for this lady.  Her heart was obviously broken.  She needs comfort & to know God’s comfort & love.  Thank you!

Secondly, if you don’t have pets, then please remember- the connection between a human & their pets can be as strong as a parent/child bond.  If someone you know loses their pet, please be gentle & sensitive with them.  I have been on the receiving end of insensitivity when I’ve lost one of my furkids, & it really hurts!  Already being in pain from my loss seemed to magnify the hurt from the insensitivity.

Take care, Dear Readers, & have a blessed Sunday!

  1. Firstly Oh nooo, what a poor woman with her dog 😦 How truly terrible, I wouldnt wish that kind of heartbreak on my worst enemy :/ pets are like you said, so bonded with their owners. They really are members of the family. I cant imagine her pain 😥 and secondly, my first hamster had an ear infection. He walked in circles all the time, literally couldnt get out of bed coz he could only walk in circles. He got better after medicine 🙂 I hope Sabrina gets well soon 😀 x

  2. I know! Can you imagine?! It’s painful enough losing a pet from natural causes, but an attack?! I overheard her on the phone telling someone what happened, about finding her dog under the bed, drenched in blood, & blood all over her bedroom. How horrible!
    The poor little hammie! Glad the medicine fixed him up. 🙂 Thank you for the well wishes for my Sabrina. I’m sure she’ll be back to her feisty, silly self in no time. I just snapped a picture of my little princess as she’s resting.. I’ll post it in just a moment..
