You have quite the menagerie.
Oh,I seem to be a rescue shelter for abandoned or sick animals no one wants,or ones that follow me home..
I recently aquired the new kitten when she followed me on a walk for a mile,it was 110 in the shade that day...Another one was behind me following me too,but I didn't see it in time and it got smashed by a car and I felt so bad...so I scooped her up,carried her for a mile up hills,sweated all over her and she has long hair-so it looked like I dunked her in water. I see it as She chose Me. lol
My lops were easter bunnies people buy for their kids,they get big and pawned off so I take all I come across...Just raised some wild rabbits my mom's old dog carried up into the yard with 100% success-released them early summer and two still hang around my yard which thrills me to no end!! lol
My turtles were "gifts" from my sister who found one in a parking lot and the new little one inside of a VA hospital-how he got there is a mystery.
Sooo many stories of heartache to go with the good ones,I've had a few animals who were so sick when I found them that they had to be put down after I spent lots of cash trying to fix them and I have cried rivers of tears...I still do it tho. Someone has to love them. I have a soft heart.
