RIP Cowgirl

Cowgirl3aDo you remember Cowgirl?  She came to us in the beginning of November.  She was a stray from a trailer park in Stevens County. We thought at first she was pregnant but soon discovered that instead, she had lymphoma, a form of cancer.  We didn’t know how long she might have, could be months, could be a few years but we wanted to give her plenty of love and comfort for what time she had left.  We asked for a special person to foster her, she didn’t need any medicines or treatment, just love and TLC.

We were so grateful when Jennifer Jacobson and her husband offered to take her in. Cowgirl loved sitting with them every chance she got.  She spent her time sitting in their laps when they were home and sleeping on the bed.  She passed peacefully just a few days ago.

We want to thank the Jacobsons for opening their hearts to a sick kitty in need.  It is not an easy thing to take an animal in when you know it doesn’t have long to live, it is a very selfless act, but it means the world to the animal in question.  The world needs more people like the Jacobsons.
