I received an e-mail yesterday saying that one of my ex-foster cats wasn't well, and just logged on to receive an e-mail saying they had let her go. She came into our care as a stray, the person who found her thought she was pregnant, and RSPCA and CP wouldnt help, so we took her in, and she went to our other fosterer initially due to everyone else being full, but hated her dogs, so had to be put in 2 large dog cages put together, and was unhappy, so when my room became free, I took her on. She wasn't pregnant, and our vet estimated her at bout 10 years old. We had some slight issues with her here too, as she hated being cooped up in the cat room, but also hated other cats, so would constantly try and fight. She had also shown signs of wanting to be an indoor only cat as well, so I knew rehoming an older black and white cat as an only cat would be tricky, but fortunately, someone saw her on CC, and offered her a home, despite being a few hours away from me, and while I dont normally allow cats to travel those distances, with her issues, I felt it worth giving her a chance. I received an update last year to say she had been diagnosed with hyper-thyroidism, but she had seemed to be doing well until this week. I am glad that she got to spend her last 14 months happy in a wonderful loving home, with people who adored her (and gave her a nicer name!!), and gave her the home comforts she wanted and deserved. RIP little one, too young to go, and make sure you send your mummy and daddy a sign, they miss you.
