I am so delighted that your situation worked out and that Sable has her forever home. You are a good furkid mummy.
I am also impressed to read about animal communicators. I need one for one of my boys who has somne issues. I did not know if it was a scambut it sounds worth trying.
Do you mind telling me how you selected the one you used? Perhaps thru a friend?
Thanks ever so much for sharing. I love happy stories.

I've really enjoyed working with Lisa Holm. I've even taken classes with her on Animal Communication, and Intuitive Psychic Readings. She's truly from the heart. Her phone number is (360) 786-8617 and her email is lisa@lisaholm-psychic.com. Website is www.lisaholm-psychic.com. She's in Olympia WA if you're close enough to meet face-to-face. Her prices are really reasonable.

Another happy update. She regularly sleeps near my pillow, so I often wake to the gentle sound of her purring. Yesterday she walked up, and knowing i was awake, she tapped me on the arm to pet her. First time. --In the 27 months since I rescued her. Another new thing, twice now she's gone under the covers, and snuggled up against my belly for a while. wub.gif Since she's stopped swiping at the other cats, a couple times now I've held her up to Rohan, who licked her head. This is the first time she's let them touch her. Rohan, the lover-kitty of the bunch is eager to snuggle her and groom her, so this is another huge step. I'm so glad she's here, she SO deserves a loving home. wub.gif wub.gif wub.gif ~Kim

SHE MEOWED! Last night she meowed for the first time in 2-1/2 years! When I first found her, she talked and talked and talked this cute little purr-y meow, for about 4 days. Then, apparently she'd said everything she needed to, and I haven't heard a peep out of her. Until yesterday. Lately I've been lifting her into higher places (she was thrilled to discover the baskets sitting on top of the cabinets), since she's patient and will wait until I bring her back down. Yesterday she was sitting in a towel closet, Rohan was gazing up at her ("me too, mommy!"), and she meowed.

Rohan has started to chin rub, "ankle polish" flirt with her, and she's letting him. She's been nose-to-nose with him a lot lately, even licked his head once. And she's started coughing up hairballs, so she's been grooming herself more. I'm stepping up the hair brushing, a minute at a time. She has the weirdest fur of any cat I've ever met. The undercoat rolls into rasta dreads, and once I gently tease it apart, the loose fur is like velcro -- can't shake it off my hands or the comb. Everytime I drive past the spot on the freeway where I found her, it's so clear she was fated to come home with me. She's a sweetheart and I love her. We have bonded. Zahalu.

Sable's now discovered a way to get up on top of the cupboards into the basket by herself. Oh happy kitty! She sleeps next to my pillow, and purrs for a couple hours straight in the wee hours. Lovely sound to wake and fall asleep to. On the downside, I'm now finding small drops of urine on her blanket. Thankfully, she sleeps on her blanket, so my bedding is protected, but I wonder why she's leaking. She doesn't pee very often, but when she does, she leaves a HUGE puddle in the cat box. Her kidneys have been weak since I found her, her urine habits have always been this way. Is it possible she's developed an infection? Would that make her leak? Literally, just one drop, in one or two spots on the blanket.

Other than that, she appears very content. She's even started to seek me out around the house instead of waiting for me to approach her. I don't know what she went through for the first half of her life, but I'm delighted she's having the chance to find out what it's like to be in a loving home, where she can ask for and expect affection. wub.gif

SABLE LICKED ROHAN'S FACE TODAY!!!! Rohan has been flirting with Sable, doing quick nose-to-nose face rubs and ankle-polish body flirts. Since Sable used to swat at everybody, it's been a slow approach to even get nose-to-nose. Today, Sable walked right up to Rohan, licked him on the face three times, then walked on by. Oh my gosh! Big, BIG step for her. It's so nice seeing her open up more and more. wub.gif

SHE SPEAKS!
Three years ago, after I rescued her off the freeway, she told me all about it. Talk talk talk. Little chirpy meows telling me the whole story. After a few days, she was done, and since then has barely said a word. Four words, in fact. She has meowed four times in three years -- and two of those were yesterday morning and this morning.

The last two mornings I've awakened to find her sitting next to my head, and she meowed the moment she knew I was awake. She often serenades me to sleep and awake with her purring. Now I get to learn what her voice sounds like! Such a sweetheart.

Hi, M&W Mom, this is thrilling news about Sable, and I am so o o happy for you. This is a true testamony to what patience and love can do for a frightened soul. How blessed Sable is to have you for her human guardian and mom. Thank you so much for sharing this news with us, and will look forward to sharing further victories.

Peace and blessings,

sad.gif Sable's winding down, folks. Her kidneys have been weak since I rescued her off the freeway three years and two months ago. I've always thought she got caught in that toxic cat food misery -- that happened the summer before I found her. She's lost weight recently. She's been constipated for a long time, and now suddenly her poops are very small too -- either it's gotten worse or she's not eating. Her bladder control is slipping. She sleeps about 23 hours a day.

You know that day where you suddenly see your animal, and realize that they've started down that final road? I don't think we're *quite* there yet, but it's coming, and not far off. We made a deal long ago that I wasn't going to do heroic measures. She's old, she's tired, she has arthritis and now failing kidneys. She was less than a week away from dying when I found her, and she's had three years of being warm, fed, safe, and loved.

I'm asking her to tell me when to take her to the vet. I hate making the decision -- I hope she helps me.

I'm digging her grave. When I got home from work last night, she was in pain. Every so often she'd let out a meow/howl of pain. She was able to rest in between, so instead of driving her through the night, I took her to the vet's this morning and released her. Sweet Sable. She was such a good kitty. The doc said there was something much bigger going on than a UTI, so it was time to let her go. I'm sad, and grateful vets have the ability to euthanize.

Sweetheart, thank you for joining my family for a while. wub.gif
Back to the work of shoveling and crying.

I'm so sorry. I've been there and I cry for you. Sable was so lucky to find you. It's hard when they are gone physically but they are never gone from our hearts.

love and peace

Hi, Mink&Willow'sMom, please permit me to offer you my sincerest sympathies in the loss of your beloved Sable. Losing a beloved companion is never easy regardless of the circumstances or how long we have been blessed with the privilege of their company. Euthanasia is the last gift of love we can give to our beloved companions -- at great sacrifice to ourselves - - so that they can be healed and restored to their former youthfulness in the company of the angels.

Mink&Willow'sMom, I do know the journey you and Sable have traveled over the last several months, and even though in your heart you know you did the very best for your precious Sable by releasing her from her failing physical body there is still the reality of not having her physical presence with you to adjust to now. Please know each of us are here for you to help you as you travel your adjustment grief journey - - we are here for you, with you, and beside you every step of your journey for as long and as often as you need us.

Mink&Willow'sMom, please know you are in my thoughts and prayers, and please do let us know how you're doing whenever possible.

Peace and blessings,
moon_beam

I'm a bit nervous about going to bed -- that's where she was 99% of the time. Every time I walk by, her absence up by my pillow is glaring. The last couple of months she'd been sleeping on a fleece throw; now she's buried in it. I changed the sheets too -- seeing her fur next to me would be hard. Granted, her fur's all over the house, but it will help the going-to-bed moment.

I'm SOOOO glad she's out of pain though. Those yowls last night broke my heart. I'm wondering if she had a cancer? ~Kim
