As Dr. Bill Robinson (my family vet growing up) once told me (as I held 5-week old Mitsi out in my hands), “You do not find them, they find you!”.  To this day they continue to find me. Too many cats never know kindness and it breaks my heart. My heart aches with the memory of so so many that I have lost. I have a thousand regrets but rarely have I had an option. I once had a vet say to me “Well if you’re going to cheap out” when sadly I authorized the only treatment that I could pay for. Sadly Ariel died that very night and to this day I fear that her death led to my husbands. He loved her so very much.
