Well, after almost 5 months of trying to make things work with our trial adoption kitty, Yewnie, I had to give her back. We dropped her off yesterday and surprisingly, I didn’t start sobbing in the middle of Petco. I grew pretty fond of this little wild fur ball but she was peeing on the carpet and we just couldn’t handle it anymore.. I tried everything to solve it but despite all of my efforts, she continued to do it more and more. We’re convinced it’s a dominance issue with our fat cat Juice and think she’ll do better off in a home without other cats. I sure hope so..
I miss her terribly and woke up several times last night looking for at the foot of the bed. I miss feeling her soft warm fur against my feet and hearing her chirp when she wants some affection. I really wish I didn’t fall for every animal I meet. It really is hard on the heart when things don’t work out.
We went to Petco today to get some cat urine remover and there she was, in the cat condo with the pictures I gave them hanging from the cage. I felt some relief knowing they posted the photos and I managed to keep my distance. When we were done finding what we needed, I glanced back over in her direction to see if I could catch a glimpse and an employee was feeding her treats and scratching her head. I feel better knowing she’s still getting some love despite being stuck in a cage again.
After all this heartbreak, we definitely won’t be getting another animal anytime soon even though I’d absolutely love a baby frenchie. The cat and the dog will just have to do until we have a large property and the finances to handle them. I’ll just have to look at more puppy and kitten pictures via facebook and instagram to fill the void until then :]
