Making Sacrifices For Our Pets

Thursday, September 21, 2017

If our beloved pet is sick or requires special medical care, sometimes we have to make sacrifices and not always think about ourselves. My cat Molly, who is 18 has renal disease and thyroid disease. She requires a special diet and medication given at special times. She also must be fed small amounts of food many times throughout the day. It is vital that she is kept well hydrated all the time.

In order to make sure that Molly is getting everything she needs, I need to be with her almost all the time. She is only used to me and even listens to what I tell her. So over the past year, outside of day trips, I have not travelled. Early next year, my nephew is getting married and we need to go to north Jersey for the wedding. My partner and I have been discussing this because if Molly is still with us and is responding to well to her treatments, we will take her with us along with all of her medications. We have already chosen a pet friendly hotel where we will stay for one night.

We do what we need to do for our beloved pets. This is how I roll, many people would not even consider making any sacrifices for their pets. A pet is like a child and over the years, Molly has given me so much unconditional love so I owe this to her. I just wish there were more people in the world that would feel the way I do about their pets.

Remember, your pets count!
