I know. I'm stressing myself way ahead of time. So...I'll try to do as you suggest and just enjoy her for now and worry about it later once I get to Tara. Sorry, had to toss that in there.:I just think when the time comes, you'll know what you need to do both for you and for Abby. Until then, I wouldn't worry about it and enjoy her.Still wrestling with this. I have time to figure it out. Couple of months, at least. I think. Hell, could be next week for all I know. Been waiting 5 years now and we were next, but...a veteran applied and now we have been kicked back again. He comes first. Which is fine with me. He deserves it.
Anyway....I dunno. Foxy made sense too..to give her a chance. But I KNOW she is going to hate it. Plus its a 6 hour drive. Can her health deal with that? Plus being locked up FOREVER inside a 530 sq ft apartment? FOREVER? She loves it outside so very much. I think I have come to at least two choices...take her and hope she doesn't die on the trip or soon after with a flareup when she is doing so well now......OR...leave her behind and make arrangements with John, my neighbor, to feed her. I will gladly send her a case of cat food via amazon whenever he needs it...and I will pay for him to take her to the vet when its her time if she is sick, looks sick, acts sick and I am not here to soothe her.
Then again..I might change my mind again. Sigh.
My friend Anne, she said leave her with John, that I would be doing her no favors putting her in prison forever. Shes an alley cat. She can take her chances along with the rest of the alley cats that roam this alley. She is not being mean saying that...she is pretending to be Abby. She asked me what I THINK Abby would say if I asked her what I should do. I think Abby would say....leave me here. But I'm not a cat and I am not Abby and I am selfish and I want her with me BUT I don't want her miserable either and she will be if I lock her ass up. No place to walk her either if we go back to beach. Small complex, not seniors...its everyone of any age. No private garden, patio or balconey. Just a box to die in...not far from the beach. Where would I take her to walk on a leash? It would freak her out.
