Hello everyone! I am so happy this group exists! I'm a long-time (almost life-long) animal rescuer, and my pets are my kids. I've dealt with a lot of medical issues over the years, and done a lot of hospice care, etc., so I feel pretty confident in my ability to provide a loving, safe home, and my husband and I decided to adopt a 12 year old diabetic cat about two weeks ago. She's just dreamy, but we're definitely deep in the learning curve with this whole thing, and I've relied so much on things I've read in here already, I figured I may as well just join! I'm in the Bellingham, WA, USA area, and am new to town, too, so also learning our new vet...lots and lots of learning ahead! Anyway, that's me!
