The Cat with Amber Eyes
Monday, 01 February 2010

Dear wonderful caregivers,


I think that I understand the moment that comes when an animal that you have cared for finally leaves your care for a new home. I am sure that you feel accomplished and at the same time a little feeling of loss as someone that you have come to love goes away for good. That is why I am writing to you today about a cat you called Brie.


She came home to live with us on December 9. We were full of anticipation as to whether she would fit in and as to whether we had made the right decision in adopting a shelter animal. Shortly after she arrived, an upper respiratory infection manifested itself and she was introduced to her new doctor who also found that she had come home with ear mites. The infection is long gone, but we are still fighting the mites with more of the same medicine that she was given on her adoption day.


Brie got a new name the day after she arrived in honor of her beautiful eyes, so now we call her Amber. She spends almost every night cuddled up in bed next to me and occasionally shares my pillow snuggled up next to my head and under the comforter. She has a shoe string that she loves to play with and that she carries around the house so as to have it handy when the human gets the urge to play.


Today she alerted me to a leak in the bathroom that would have led to significant flooding, so now I owe her a reward as soon as I can figure out how to do something other than hug her for the wonderful critter that she is.


I will always remember the kindness that you showed me on my two visits to your facility, and you can count on me to always be supportive of your program to preserve the wonderful animals that are under your care. Amber and I thank you and appreciate you more than you will ever know.
