Crashing and Banging: See What These Two Found in the Kitchen

See What They Were Doing: Crashing and Banging Coming from the House

Flash forward to December and I was outside feeding the horses in our paddock, which is about 100-150 feet from our house, and I heard all this crashing and banging in the house. I stopped, listened a second, not really sure what I heard and then I heard the crashing again.

So I took off, running for the house, not sure what was going on since both our dogs were outside with me.Rosie and Minnie are the only ones left in the kitchen, which is where all the noise is coming from. What I saw when I came through that door stunned me. I literally had to sit down on the floor, right where I was. There, in front of me, were Minnie and Rosie, playing tag with each other!

Rosie flying out of her kennel, racing around the kitchen, spinning the pan I am sure Minnie knocked to the floor. There was Minnie, hiding in Rosie’s crate, waiting for her to go by so she could jump out at her.

From that day on, both became more like puppies and kittens are supposed to be. Gone was the puppy that wouldn’t come out on her own, and gone was the sad depressed little kitten. In their place were two happy, playful, adoptable animals and I didn’t do a thing but give them a chance.

Rosie went just before Christmas to her forever home. I got to go on that trip to Maryland with Elaine. It was the best Christmas present I have gotten in a long time.

Minnie is still waiting patiently. But she is a kitten, through and through, lovable, playful and happy, talkative and bossing the boys around. Together, they healed each other.

I now tell people all the time, miracles are real. I have seen them happen right before my eyes.

I too, would have kept them both - I could never have parted with little Rosie, the dog. What is 10 or 11 years of your life to devote to a little furbaby who had had nothing but hell and abuse from birth? It is a heart-warming story nevertheless, but it draws attention to the so-called "shelters" of Kentucky - where their aim in life is not to find homes for the animals, but to KILL them!!! I was absolutely stunned when I read this - how DARE they call themselves "shelters"?!?!?! Damn these shelter directors to hell - why can't they use their collective power to CHANGE these places? The funding is provided - why can't they use some of it to ban back-yard breeders and puppy-mills??? Some humans are really the lowest form of life - they have the mentality of worms - and cannot think for themselves. Most of these "shelters" are run by the most uncaring, unfeeling and unemotional sub-humans I have ever had the misfortune to come across - even here in South Africa!!! I can't help but wish for the end of the world - we have already done too much harm to this planet and it's animals.

May the Earth Mother be always by your side in your battle to save these innocent victims of mans cruelty to other living creatures.

I always wonder when I see comments about animals abused or neglected or thrown away if anyone one who comments take in foster animals! There are so many deserving animals in "shelters" waiting for that special someone to give them love and they have so much love to give in return. No animal should die alone in a shelter! I hope at least a couple find it in their hearts to if not adopt foster until their forever home comes to them. I foster 5 and have 6 of my own who I use to foster but they couldnt find their forever homes so they stayed with me. Some are older. I have a 11 year old Doxy that was to be euthanized when his mom died of cancer and the husband didnt want him. He has is wheels as his back legs are paralized and he doesnt seem to know he has a problem. Hes so lovable and just wants to be near me and cuddle. I couldnt let him die alone in a shelter so I foster him yet I know he will never be adopted so he can stay as long as he wants with me. So many animals so many sad stories. Just give them a chance they wont disappoint you!

oh this brought tears to my eyes. No living loving creature deserves to be thrown away like that. Thank you for caring for them. A great big thank you to the man who gave you the push you needed to snap out of your shock over the dead kitten. He was like an angel in disguise.

What a precious story. Thank you so much for sharing the heartwarming, and funny story of two "throwaways", who just needed love.
