Taking in a new pet is certainly not a “Little Thing”. Yet the little things like love, comfort, friendship, and provisions make such a huge difference to man and animal kind alike.
Here’s the little story about how Rosalie (Rosie) has come to be a new family member for us.
Rosalie (nee Kitty) lives next door with our wonderful neighbors. They are going through job relocation and their home has sold quickly. They do not currently have another place to live in their new state, and will be living in a hotel for a while. 3 adults, 1 preschooler, and 1 dog in a hotel for months. You understand their situation, I’m sure.
It’s never easy to have to let go of a beloved pet, but sometimes it is necessary even when not part of the original plan. We understand because when we left Thailand there was a huge hurdle of getting Gigi home with us. It almost didn’t happen due to airline embargoes.
Our neighbors asked us to help spread the word about Rosalie needing a new home and well, it just made sense for us to take her. She knows us and is well-loved by all. The transition would probably be much harder if she were moved out of her known spaces. Everyone feels a little easier about what is to be. Still, I know this is very hard on our neighbors.
Rosalie has been coming over daily for several hours to get used to things, and goes back home in the evening. It seems to be the right thing to do. We will acquire Rosalie permanently in a couple weeks when the neighbors move.
So everyone, meet Rosalie, new doggie at Little by Little!
Everyone is happy…except the cat.
