What a day at dog and cat ville
Washed, warmed and whiskey’d my 3 w’s. It’s been a tough day only a week off.. For those who don’t know I do v work in an animal welfare centre basically a kennel and cattery but we take in strays and rescues as well as train them to make them suitable to rehome. By 11 o’clock today (start at 8) I’d been smothered by smelly wet laundry, washed around 40 mank food bowls, been pissed on all over my trousers by a very excited old lady jack Russell and had to deal with a maggot infestation as some twirp left an open tin of dog food in a normal room shelf (like not refrigerated meat and jelly) it was crawling and made me want to vomit) we had to clear out the entire shelf and all the dry food below it.. One stupid open can led to soo many maggots and 11 food bags (huge ones) being thrown (i didn’t do this alone thank god) I get very upset with such mess so I wasn’t happy but you can never say you have seen it all in these places the next thing will come running around the corner. Just have to get on with it lol. Also had to deal with another volunteer who was so stuck up and a body image I crave she just came in like she knew everything.. She only started last week.. And just barges in and they have that self fulfilled confidence that shows they think they’re better than you and act snobby these people make me feel like crap I’ve known too many just get out of my life! (please) Two very sad jobs were trying to make a once very bouncy and bonkers (as in good and wild) character (came to us as a stray) she had a c-section to deliver 3 healthy pups a few days ago and you can see how emaciated she is now and she just looks so sad, like the light has left her eyes depression in a dog bless her I just wanted to hold her take her home and do everything I could to see her bounce come back. I had to sit in her kennel and try to persuade her to eat something and she just couldn’t it looked like it was just too much at the same time her pups called for and she just plodded to them and lies down it was just so sad to see. The other story is heart wrenching to hear or even to believe that something so horrible could be done to a stray cat I had to just sit with him for a while to see like meg (above) whether she would eat and to see whether she was making any attempt to toilet as well as some comfort she was found dumped in a field next to the road not moving we thought she’d been hit by a car having bad head injury and crushed tail. After further inspection and treatment by the vet this poor cat was penetrated sexually (r word I know the word can trigger people didn’t want to write it) when I heard it was utter breathlessness I couldn’t describe how I feel, anger shock and just shear horror for the event this cat had to endure she’s a tiny cat too. There are just such bad people in the world I’ve been abused and badly hurt but I had so much more hatred for the bloke that did this than my own abusers its even worse that this bloke got pleasure because they got DNA but hopefully they’ll get a match and he’ll get charged but I know it may not happen. I just don’t get it did they come across this cat strolling and think yeah get a good time from her… People make me sick. I really can’t associate what I went through with the cat I saw today. Its spiralled around my head how this all must be in her eyes and her mind. I really hope (although I doubt it) she’s not in too much agony I trust the staff and know shes in good hands and that if she doesn’t pull through her final times were as painless as they could be. I’m thinking of you daisy I know that doesn’t help and you don’t know but I am.
Well I’m completely aware I’ve just moaned and be depressing there were some good aspects to the day I had a nice play around with my fab boy Bailey he’s so lovely I’d adopt him if I had a big enough garden for him and money to feed his big gut. He’s soo lush. The new jack rescue we’ve got has taken a shine to me so that’s made me happy ^_^
I suppose today was just a day where dark shined out the light hope everyone else’s day hasn’t been too bad. If anyone reads this thanks x
