Sometimes in life you have to give up pets because of rough times in life, other times because of a move or whatnot. It still hurts as if you've lost them for good. This is one such time. I just had to give up my Handful and Hubert yesterday to a friend. I bottle fed Handful since she was 2 weeks old, and nursed her many times back to health while being ill. We couldn't afford all the vet bills, so she went to live with my friend. Hubert went to keep her company so she wouldn't feel lonely. They were excellent passengers on the two and a half hour drive to Santa Barbara. When they got there they immediately hid under my friend's bed and Handful never came out to say goodbye. I'm really going to miss my cat, but I know she'll have a good home.
