Cleo; At risk of death to foster fail
Cleo was struggling in the cattery as she found it very stressful. She had been rehomed several times due to no fault of her own. Her first owners moved abroad and left her in the care of their neighbors however 6 years later the owners child developed allergies and asked the Blue cross to help care for her. Lucky they did as Cleo was suffering with hyperthroidism and the medication administered did not agree with her. Cleo was booking in for surgery to remove her gland. Her thyroid removal was successful however hours later she took a turn for the worst and was at risk of death due to difficulties breathing caused by the swelling in her neck. The vet managed to incubate and safe her life. 25 days later Cleo had found her forever home (little did I know!)
Cleo took a few weeks to settle in her foster home with me, she enjoyed spending time in her own room where she felt safe. She slowly came out of her shell and ventured downstairs for some belly rubs.
Cleo went back to the blue cross 2 months later as I had a 2 week holiday booked. But in that time I realised I missed her, she had become a big part of my life, she was my family, I loved her (and I think she loved me.)
On my return I contacted the Blue Cross to inform them I had become a foster fail and fallen in love with Cleo and wanted to offer her a forever home. On the 9th February 2019 (after she had been cleared by the vets for rehoming) I signed Cleo's adoption paperwork.
At 12 years old Cleo had found her forever home to live out her golden years being waited on hand and foot by her adoring human.
