I know it has been some time since I have posted.  It has been a very hectic week.  I had to say good bye to one of my dear friends, Miss Ginny.  She had been missing for about 6 weeks and decided to show up on a Sunday.  She was nothing but skin and bones and severely matted.  She was never a small cat, she was more on the portly side and to see her like this was very shocking.  I tried to get her to eat over a couple of weeks, but unfortunately her kidneys and liver were shutting down.  The vet confirmed what I already knew and stated that it was best that she wouldn't suffer any more. Most of my animals have come to me in some unusual of circumstances.  Miss Ginny was no different.  She is what I called my Katrina cat.  She belonged to college students.  These students left her with a friend that left her outside and dogs ran her through a barbed wire fence.  Well when they actually asked me to take her, her hind quarters were shaved and stitched.  However, at that time her name wasn't Miss Ginny.  It was Gwen Biffani, leave it to a college student.  At that time she didn't like anyone and was scared of everything even her own shadow.  Well they say that love and kindness can cure and with time she came to love me.  Needless to say I loved her from the beginning.  She became one of the best companions in my life. Miss Ginny's final home is next to Starr Dogg down by the pond.   Starr's demeanor will be most comforting to Miss Ginny.  And Starr can show Miss Ginny the ropes so to speak.  My life has been enriched by these gentle creatures and they will forever hold a very special place in my heart.
