One week ago today, we said goodbye to ASAP and Sultan and surrendered them back into the care of Cats Protection for rehoming. It was the most heartbreaking decision and I didn’t stop crying the rest of the day and into the next.
I haven’t spoken about it on Facebook because there is so much shame attached to putting them back into foster care until they’re rehomed.
It was NOT a rash or easy decision but for the greater good of them – for ASAP and Sultan, to have lives they truly deserve with people that can provide the full care and attention they need and deserve – the decision was made.
I miss them. I miss them so very much. This house is an empty house without these two beautiful furbabies in it. The ‘little monsters” I would call them. Terms of affection. They already had several nicknames each – ASAP was Ace, or Chicken – shortened from “Smooth Chicken”, or Kid or the Euclid Kid or Euclid-ades and Sultan was usually just Slatty or Slattykins or Slatty Bumba (she was a plump girl) or still the old Salty Sea Dog.
I would sing them songs. Little chants of their nicknames.
The house really is so empty and quiet without them. (This is one of the last photos I took of them.)
