so sad.....

where we live....people seem to drop off strays alot....which pisses me off...and 2 of my 3 were former strays....but we had one show up saturday.....during the snow storm...so he curled up on my wicker couch on my front porch, we tried to feed him (which I know you're not supposed to do) but it was snowing...and he was skinny...how could we not??? So last night around 8pm...I hear crying at my front door....and he is laying directly in front of my door obviously close to death...it broke my heart.....so I put my coat on and stayed out there with him...til' he died....which wasn't til' about 9:30..but I couldn't stand for him to be alone...I know he was "just" an animal...but it's just not right...I covered him up, and will have my brother bury him today..I don't know why he picked our front door to go to...Sommer says it's because he knew we wouldn't sheeewww him away..cute!! I just don't like to see anything suffer........So after I came in to my "former" strays...and reminded them of how good they've got it.... I did a page in my art journal yesterday....used my ekg print out...as the background...and did all my journaling about it...on the back..

plus....Look what you did!!!! you guys have already got me half way to my goal....for raising money for the heart walk!!!!!!!!! I am so shocked!! want to send out a thanks to Rachel M......and Jenny M!!! you guys rock...and when I seen that you added "in honor of ed" it made me cry....love it!!! thank you...thank you....

Tonight is weigh in....and I don't expect much after having a 6 pound last week....but am hoping for at least a loss!! that's not much to ask for....hee,hee!! Today me and Tonee' are going out and hitting a bunch of pharmacys she's a little nervous.....getting out there for the first time...so I told her I would go with her.....Oh I am so hoping she gets a job...soon!! I know it's a hard time to be job hunting...but there are so many pharmacys....hoping if we hit enough of them..somebody has to need someone out there>>>

So sorry that you have to deal with a lot of strays. You have such a kind heart.

Love your journal page - speaks volumes.

Good luck to Tonee! I had an interview Sat for the first time in a long time. Hoping for good news today!

OMG Staci, that made me cry! Flippen awful people dropping off animals, they should be left out in a bloody snowstorm in the middle of nowhere! Grrrrrrr! Bless you for staying with him/her, that's so sweet.

Awesome journal page hun. I actually found one of those little flip book things from Target the other day. You posted last year that you had one and when I was in Target, I found one and had to buy it! So I'm thinking about making something similar with it. Just a page here and there when I have something to tell myself!

Good luck Tonee, fingers crossed for you chick!

aw that story breaks my heart. I would have done the same thing. Animals know people... that poor thing knew you had a big warm heart.

Aaw, poor kitty! That makes me sad, too. You're so sweet to have stayed with him! Saturday was bitter cold and windy, just a terrible time to be outside.

Speaking of the snow, I need to get my kids outside building a snowman or something before Spring! I just realized I have NO snow pics from this winter! Ack!

Best of luck to Tonee with the job search! I'll be praying for her! :)

Awe. that is so sad. i almost cried. I am glad that he had someone with him at that scary time though!!
You know, it doesn't matter if he is "JUST" an animal. He was a living thing. Humans should have compassion for all things living...
