On Dinah’s page I mentioned that my parents know a couple who foster dogs . I had moved into a rental with two friends of mine, our home has a yard. Of course the three of us spoke about the possibility of getting a dog after we had all settled in. Well realistically we knew that was not going to happen any time soon since all of us worked crazy schedules. The couple my parents are friends with suggested getting a cat since they require less care than a dog . For the first time ever I went to a animal shelter and came across pumpkin at the time she was dealing with a allergic reaction. It was from the food the shelter had been feeding her, she had patches of fur missing. I also noticed that she had scars from scratching I sent a group message to my friends with photos. They loved her a few days later I came back for her and brought her home. Over time with a balanced diet her fur filled back in and her scars are barley noticeable.
