Handsome Ron

What a handsome man, huh? His name is Grandpa Ron and I took him into my home for fospice not too long ago. For those of you who don’t know, fospice is a blend of fostering and hospice - a chance for us to provide end-of-life care for old and/or terminally ill shelter animals. Grandpa, for instance, is a super senior at 17 years old and has some medical issues that need to be monitored. Having him in a home setting maximizes his comfort (he rarely leaves my bed) as well as gives me the opportunity to keep a better eye on him.Fospice care does set you up to be heartbroken. But so does loving any living thing - it doesn’t mean we shouldn’t do it, right? Until that moment comes, I get to enjoy all the mornings I wake up with him curled up on my chest, all the Eskimo kisses, all the loud purrs. I wouldn’t trade it for the world.
