I agree with you fineartmarcella. Just hearing you say something like 'you had to reconsider if you could keep Penny because she had emo. tional issues' is sad. If you have a child and the child has some emotional issues, do you abandon the child? No. So, why would the thought of abandoning little Penny ever cross your mind? Sad. Nobody is perfect, I'm sure you have your moments but thank goodness our mates, children, friends & family don't abandon us when we have our moments. I'm sure abandoing little Penny would have been really emotionally healthy for her! I'm glad you gave her a home and I hope she id doing well, but in the future perhaps you shouldn't adopt anymore animals (or any children) if you think they are disposable because they have emotional issues! This sort of mentality needs to be wiped away from human thought. And, getting praise for doing what is normal (keeping the animal/child we adopt) shouldn't be necessary. I'd much rather see a story that deserves praise not a story that shows people doing what is expected (keeping the animal they adopt).

What an absolutely beautiful story.
Am coming into this conversation very late, but here goes. My question is, are the animals adopted converted to vegan diets including this one? I cannot reconcile my thirty year vegan idealogy to pet owning although I've owned three. One dog and three cats - all rescued and all of them vegan. My adorable Dal passed away two years ago after thirteen years vegan (one year was typical commercial dog diet by the puppymill). My two cats have also since passed but both lived long and good lives on vegan cat food. It can be done. It's pricey and labor consumptive, but we enslaved these animals thousands of years ago and now our urban areas are overrun with thousands of unwanted animals, breeding and dying in awful circumstances. We can't allow ouselves hypocrisy by preaching veganism if we own animals who are tied to the suffering of the slaughterhouse industry.
