Special Cases: Once again, the battle begins

Published 8:00 am Friday, January 4, 2019

As I’ve been celebrating the Christmas season and the New Year, I still had my eye on kids in trouble.

Unfortunately, all the cases didn’t end as I would like, but the final decision is left to a higher power.

Before I go on, I’d like to express my deepest gratitude for the awesome response received for “Cola’s Story.”  If I brought a tear to people’s eyes, join the club. As I stated once before, I see him each and every day.

Also, thanks to all my angels who have responded generously to my plea for my kids.

A little cat was found in the snow and was most likely struck by a car. A young lady picked him up and brought him to Landrum vet. She would keep the young cat if she could get some help.

When I was called, I said, “Give the cat whatever is needed and bill Lennie’s Fund.”

Dr. Lara told me, “It’s a sweet cat, Lennie, and the young lady is nice, too.”

All tests and meds were administered, and the cat was sent home with a splint to try and save the damaged rear leg. After further tests, it was decided that the leg must be taken, which would be best for the cat’s welfare.

I called and spoke with the young lady, and she agreed to take Milo (her name for the cat) into the vet the morning of the operation. The next day, it seems the cat escaped from the young lady’s arms and ran into the woods.

I put out an alert for Milo, and Dana Mayer’s team and Po’Kitties has set traps. Thus far, no Milo.

I’ve been helping a Boxer named Max at Bonnie Brae’s, who needed meds and vaccinations and repair for a broken limb. After all was done and paid for, my good friend Dr. Ian Fitch informed me that Max had to be put to sleep due to internal problems.

I wish we could win them all but, as I stated earlier, it’s left to a higher power.

I just sent $500 to Bill at the Soldiers Animal Project in honor of Silo, the new hero who was placed with a troubled vet.

I will be looking into an abandoned trailer with dogs, puppies and one very pregnant lady, picked up by Lori Jewell and Pet Tender Angels. Phone calls and emails were sent to rescues that will assist her more next week.

I’d like to close with one of my favorite quotes from Mother Theresa, “God only gives you as much as you can handle, I only wish he wouldn’t trust me so much.”

Thanks for listening.
