Rescue Mission?

Well, Daisy has been brought over. There's been a lot of hissing and deep growling going on. But my bigger concern is that I may have stepped into a rescue situation.

It was a very young couple who dropped Daisy off, and they have an absolutely beautiful 6 month old baby boy (one of the reasons they were getting rid of Daisy).

I ushered Daisy off to our spare room, and closed the door behind. I then spent a few minutes talking to the couple about Daisy. The young man said that Daisy had been given a clean bill of health and was prone to over eating. As well she was strictly an indoor cat.

But I've got to tell you - - the cat that I let out of the carrier was far from over fed, and looked like she'd spent more time in the barn than in a house.

I don't know these people, and I don't know their circumstances. So I cannot and will not make a judgement call. My heart goes out to Daisy, and I pray that we can put some meat on her, and that she'll learn to accept us and even maybe like us. I doubt that will be happening within the next 24 hours.

Here's where my patience will need to be tested, and have the faith that I did the right thing.

Oh, isn't that awful to even suspect neglect?

I pray that she will take a wonderful new liking to her new "digs" and to her new owners! Hang in there. Surely it will get better.

Don't forget to take pics. I will be interested in seeing before and after pics once she has gained some weight. :)
