Major Saga Update
I have been a bit overdue in the Saga Humane Society updates. Thanks goes out to to all the SAGA volunteers who have sent information about SAGA events – fundraisers and stories about the good work they do within the community for the animals of Ambergris Caye.
Chubby & Capri – Why Don’t You Love us Anymore?
Imagine growing up with your family and loved ones around you. Imagine the security of knowing that you’ll be cared for and loved into your old age, that someone will be there for you to make sure that you are able to enjoy your final years with comfort and care. Now imagine being elderly and your family moving away, just abandoning you and leaving you behind. Wouldn’t you wonder why they don’t love you anymore?
Chubby & Capri are two gentle and loyal cats. They were born in 2000 and spent their entire lives with their family, who apparently cared for them and loved them all of that time. As all responsible pet owners know – pet ownership is a lifelong commitment. Sadly for Chubby & Capri, their owners were not responsible.
Chubby & Capri had no idea that when their owner left that they would never come back, but that is exactly what happened. Their owner left them in temporary care and then they just said they weren’t coming back. For over ten years, Chubby and Capri had a family that loved them and then, that family abandoned them.
Poor Chubby & Capri. It’s not their fault. They are very good cats – a bit overweight, but lovely and sweet. Now, during a time when they should be enjoying their ‘senior’ years, they are homeless and probably wondering why their previous owners don’t love them anymore.
They are currently living at SAGA Humane Society, where the staff are trying to keep them comfortable and happy, but it isn’t the right place for a pair of older cats who’ve spent their whole lives as family pets. Chubby & Capri need someone to come into their lives to restore their faith in human beings. They need someone who truly does understand that pet ownership is a lifelong commitment. They need someone who will love them truly and forever. Chubby & Capri have already gone through so much upheaval that SAGA Humane Society believes that it would be best to keep them together.
Please give Chubby and Capri a chance to show you that love lasts a lifetime. If you are thinking of getting a pet, remember that cats and dogs live well over ten years. A good and responsible owner understands this and makes sure that their pets are cared for, especially when they are older. Pets are dependent on us and should never have to wonder why their owners don’t love them anymore.
If you can give a permanent and loving home to Chubby & Capri or to any other animal in need, please call SAGA on 226 3266 and they will be more than happy to help.
