SUNSHINE

18th March 2009 on a Wednesday is when she was sent in front of my door. She was found wandering around, and according to the person who sent her to me. She was seen around the area for a few consecutive days and has been found to wander around approximately in the past 1 month.

The hectic schedule I was going through at the time, really didn't allow me to take in a new cat. But there was this cat, in front of me, what could I do? She didn't look healthy to me...the ear, the smell, the wounds and of course flea...Took her to the vet and found her to have fever and to be underweight...

Cleared the ear, the flea, treat the wound...and then introduce her to Bulan & Bintang... It seemed to be trouble at first, but after 3 days..Bulan can be seen chasing her around, and Bintang can be seen licking her... Isn't that just so sweet...

UNFORTUNATELY...on the 28th of March, I came to learn of her owner.... I had waited for this moment a few days after she arrived at my house...But after over a week? that HURT. but considering how sad and worried the owner might be, I guess I had no choice but to return her.

On top of the sadness for having to let Sunshine go...It was heartbreaking to see Bulan & Bintang looking for her for the following few days...

A week passed after Sunshine has been returned, I decided to try and negotiate on getting her back... It was 8.00 pm on 3rd April, I cant describe how grateful I was when an agreement was reached and we would be meeting the owner at 10.00 pm to get her. Happily I got the carrier in my car, went for an appointment at 8.30 pm and planned to straight away go for Sunshine at 10.00 pm.

UNFORTUNATELY, my two hours of excitement ended up in tears..as the owner changed his mind. So here is to Sunshine
*This wasn't the best experience ever. and this is not the best time to be heart-broken. My tears are to drain off love that had been there for her. Wishing Sunshine the very best of her life. and my last note to the owner, if for any reason Sunshine is no longer wanted/needed due to illness or no longer needed for breeding...Please let me know. Thank you for offering your other cat and your kittens to come...but it's not the cat, it's the love for Sunshine.

Note: Sunshine is what I named her. She was named "Moon" a.k.a. Baby by the owner. What a coincidence to "Bulan". No wonder Sunshine (Moon) got along better with Bulan as compared to Bintang.

Oh dear .... your post is making me cry!

I had similar experience before but mine ended happily ... it is LULU.
She wandered into our home with a big wound that turned really bad and needed surgery. We sent her in to vet, spend loads of money ...

Months later we found out that she had an owner! It is a long story with a happy ending. To make it short, Lulu escaped out while in heat, got caught by the ex-owner (didn't know they were the owner at that time), they restrained her but at night, the very moment they opened their door, she sprinted out and ran into our house compound! :)
She made her choice!

It had been difficult time that I tried to put things behind me. I had been coping by avoidance, so I kinda neglected this blog as well.

BUT I'm back because there's a happy ending to this =). though there are consequences to this happy ending of mine.

I'm now updating this by dates...so I'll eventually reach to the story....

Thanks for sharing, it really helps to know that there are people who understands.
