Remember This Little Guy?

>> Tuesday, July 22, 2008

Just wanted to give you all an update on Sweet Pico. Aw, I just want to scratch under his chin-y-chin-chin. But alas, he is not ours to have. :( Sad I know but on the other hand I'm not terribly sad because I truly believe that he is/will be sent to a good home. Our role was to get him help, which we did and I can't imagine that it was all for naught. I also believe that if Pico was meant to be with us we would've found him. So Pico? Enjoy your new family wherever you are. You're a good kitty!

The vet was able to stitch up his arm and neuter him (no baby Picos!) while in their care.

We did try looking for him (thanks hon) both at the vet and at the pound. Hubby made one last try at the pound today but Pico wasn't there. When he was at the vet and hubby was calling on him, we started to get the feeling that they believed us to be the actual owners of Pico who were trying to scam them out of free or cheap medical care. We were even told after the 2nd or 3rd phone call that he had developed an infection and it would require more care and basically more money to bail him out. Okay that could very well be true but we were suspicious of what we were being told and how we were being treated. I have to say I can understand where they're coming from though. No doubt stuff like this has happened to them many times, which again is very sad.

I want to give a special shoutout to
LolaBloom for helping me understand all of this a little bit more too as she's had experience with these sorts of issues. When we're ready for a new kitty LolaBloom, we will definitely be coming to you to adopt.

Many thanks to all of YOU for your support and advice and to my
sweet sister who was willing to pay for Pico if he was found.

Bye Pico.

UPDATE and GUEST BLOGGER!!!

Hi all, this is Yardsnacker. Curiosity got the better of me so I called over to Animal Emergency Services East located in Kirkland, WA.

I called at 11:25 PM because I couldn't go to sleep without knowing the full story. Luckily their hours are from 6PM to 8AM so it's no biggie. Well I talked to the receptionist and I told her that we had dropped off a cat that we found injured at Marymoor Park in Redmond, WA, and were really curious as to what happened. She asked if it was Pico! I love that they are using that name now! She was really nice and said that the cat was still on anti-biotics, but that the Vetrinarians friend had adopted him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (my typing teacher just rolled over in her grave and bumped my english teacher)

Now, how rare is that? You know, you would think that vets ran out of friends to give up cats to about a week into their career, but we are so happy, a little misty eyed but so happy that the cat is going to such a high quality home. She really spoke fondly of the cat. Well, we really couldn't ask for anything more. Farewell Pico De Guyo. May you have a long life full of clean litter boxes and small bugs flying right in front of you...just out of reach....
