You are here
There have been a lot of life changes over the years, and from time to time I wondered who actually rescued who. It wasn't too long after I adopted here that the economy soured into the what's known as the Great Recession. There has been different homes, different animals in those homes to get along with, out-of-state moves, and a few times the struggle to stay afloat was almost too hard to bear. She was there for me, and I was there for her, and somehow we made it through.
Shikee is about twelve years old now. We currently live in Oregon where I work hands on with other shelter animals and every time I come home she has the same "meowrf" and "head boop" greeting for me. It's been a long, hard road, and I wouldn't change a minute of it!
Moral of the story: Don't overlook the older and special needs pets you see up for adoption in the shelter... they may be the best friend you ever had!
