This time a happier one 🙂
If you’ve missed the huge scare with Enzo, please read the previous post, as it explains all about his condition and what it means for us.
After the last post, I was utterly broken, and thought we had to either give Enzo back to the place we adopted him from, or put him through surgery that could well kill him.
We were distraught and, after an already really really bad day (see the post before the last one!) we were struggling a lot.
Then my good friend who I met through blogging left a comment that changed everything. She said that if she were in this situation with one of her cats, she wouldn’t put them through traumatic surgery but would keep them at home, give them the best life possible, and when the time came help them cross the rainbow bridge.
It could be weeks, months, or years…but all that matters is he is loved.
Call me an idiot (I’m an idiot) but this never occurred to me.
I felt an immediate, overwhelming sense of joy, and told my partner – why can’t we just keep Enzo and love him for however long we have him?! For some reason this really freaked my partner out (he struggles when we’ve made a decision and then go back on it; he has to work through all the positives, negatives etc).
After talking it through we immediately phoned our vet and asked her opinion. She said it sounded like a great idea!
I burst into happy tears because we could keep Enzo, and we’re just gonna love him and appreciate him for all that he is. I don’t care if we don’t have him long, he’s an absolutely amazing little kitty and I absolutely adore him.
Today has had several other horrific things happen, and although I’m exhausted and have a stress headache…I’m really happy about Enzo. I love this kitten more than I EVER thought possible.
What a day….
Here are some photos where you can kinda see the indentation. It’s the groove at the left (his right) paw. See how it’s drawn in?
Kinda hard to get an accurate photo of it.
Please cross your fingers that our Kitty Snipper has a long future with us, and in the meantime here are some photos from today of our big boy – wearing his very first collar!
Doesn’t he look adorable?! Even on the smallest setting the collar was a little too big though haha 🙂
And these were all taken since the vet appt.
