Kitties' Mom Here Today

Greetings, one and all.

    I must say, my husband and I are overwhelmed by the caring generosity of folks from around the world, who truly don't even know us in any real sense.   It certainly warms the heart, and goes a long way towards restoring our faith in humanity.

   We appreciate each and every one of you, and words cannot express our heartfelt thanks for your kind assistance in our current time of need.  All of your caring thoughts and well-wishes and "purrayers" are very much appreciated as well.

   We realize times are rough all over, and it was a very difficult and distasteful decision to even create the post to ask for help.  It is very humbling to know there are so many caring people who are willing to help without passing judgement.  And we know some of you may not be much better off, and yet, you found a way to offer help. 

We love you all!

   We were very distraught to think we might have to give up our beautiful kitty babies, and we realized that no matter what, we simply cannot do that.  It would go against everything we believe about having pets; i.e. a committement was made to that animal to care for it for its entire lifespan.  For us, it would be no less horrible than giving up flesh-and-blood children.  Besides, with things as rough as they are, the kitties are almost our only remaining link to sanity. 

  Thank you, thank you all, a thousand times over, and over again.

Jan knows how you feel. She is struggling to hold onto us because she made a commitment to us.
