Nala had some problems, caused by her owner's neglect. Sadly, her owner cared a lot more about drugs than Nala. She was left alone for many months, locked in a small trailer bathroom with no air, or even an open window, in the sweltering heat of the summer. She was fed whenever the owner remembered to stop by...usually once a week, never more than that...sometimes less. She had to lie in her own waste & her water source was from a bathtub faucet that thankfully leaked very badly.
We had Miss Nala spayed, given all her shots, de-wormed, heart worm tested & treated for a mild case of demodex, that the vet said was probably brought on by the stress from the heat, her poor care, poor hygene & nutrition. During all this, she has just been the sweetest little girl. Everything was so new to her...like she was seeing toys, playing, running...all for the very first time. She was Free! Free from her bathroom prison. Here she is playing "Turtle Tug" with Petie & Phil. Hillarious to watch!
I am Happy to report that Nala has gone to her forever home with a delightful little girl named Trish! While we miss her terribly here, that is part of the heart ache of foster care...to love them & then let them go, we know that she will have a Great Life with her new girl in Delaware. AND...we will get to see her again next summer when Trish comes back to visit her Grandmom for the summer. Thanks Trish, for opening your heart to Nala! My very best wishes to you both.
