Mac has company.........................

We just spent an enjoyable afternoon with Mac's previous owner. She stopped by for a visit. It has been over a year since Mac has seen her. It was as if they had never seperated. Mac stuck to her like glue the whole time she was here.

TAKE YOUR PETS FOR REGULAR CHECK-UPS!
my cat died at 3 years old due to invasive kideny cancer. he was highly anemic and his kidneys and blood work were off the charts, the vet said it was the worst he's ever seen. we had to put him down that day. up untill then, he showed no sings of illness that we could recognize, however he was a ticking time bomb and only the vet could see it. we thought he was just muscular, but it was just his bulging kideneys. animals hide illness! he only showed signs the day before he died, before this, he seemed completely normal, healthy, and his usual self. his name was maxie and he was my best friend, because we thought he was healthy we didnt take him for check-ups but had we cought it earlier he might have had a chance. we learned from this, we should have paid attention, take ALL your pets for check-ups so they can be helped early on before its too late.

Re: Mac has company.........................

I never understood how long the bond lasts. After Hahnzel had been with us about 6 months I was going to bring him with me when i went to pick up food from his breeder. He told me absolutely not to do that. He explained that since he hand fed him and actively socialized him that there might be problems.

Re: Mac has company.........................

I think it's great as well to a point. My wife said that she is starting to feel like a foster home rather than the owner of Mac. It's been almost two years since we have adopted Mac. I don't want to hurt the previous owners feelings here, but sooner or later the connection needs to be severed. She is a very nice lady and anyone could tell that she loves Mac dearly. She told Mac upon departing that she would return to see him very soon. My wife even asked the previous owner if something happened would she be interested in getting Mac back, but she declined, not having enough time, not enough room in her new place......... I don't know, I'm stumped as to how to handle this.

A similar thing happened to us, as soon as Remington heard their voices he got so excited! I think that just shows how much they were loved!
