I do photos of the dogs and cats for IMHS and post them in their forum on Pinecam. For the past two years I’ve been falling in love with Bambi the cat. She is a special needs cat, although she would tell you that is not true. She was born on April 15th, 2014 with spina bifida which has caused her to be paralyzed on her back end. She knows nothing else, so she gets around really well. I said I was going to be strong and not take all these animals home, but Bambi kept tugging at my heart. I spoke with my husband about the idea of adopting her and he quickly said he would rather not. He helps keep me strong. Then he went to put a shelf up at the shelter for the cats and met Bambi. About two weeks later, he surprised me with bringing her home. The good thing is he gave himself time and really thought about it. So now she is in her loving forever home.
She has been busy here, eats like a champ and runs around, it is amazing how she gets around. I love her so much, but I worry about her digestive issues, she will go a whole day without doing anything and then be regular. Anyway, something I am learning about, I was told not to worry. She never appears sick and eats like a champ, so I’m assuming everything is fine. I pray it is always.

I have two chihuahuas. I started doing photos for IMHS back in summer of 2012. In March of 2013 I tried to foster Paco, he was a 5lb chihuahua/minpin mix. After about 2 weeks I adopted him and now he is a stable 10 lbs, he keeps himself at a perfect weight. In December 2013, I tried to foster Rosie, she was a 3lb chihuahua. After about 2 weeks I adopted her. She is now a restricted 6+lb, restricted, because she will eat until she can’t fit through the door. She has pancreatitis and had some really hard times, but got that figured out and she is doing great.

I’m a total foster failure and stopped doing photos at IMHS for fear of bringing more animals home. I missed it so much, I decided to try again in August 2016, but told myself I had to be strong. I guess I failed at that, since Bambi is now at home with us. She is my one and only exception.

I know that Bambi has many people that love her as much as I so I wanted to share her life so people can still see her even if it isn’t in real life. I didn’t want to take away from the cats that still need homes in the IMHS cats topic so I opened a topic for her here. I was told she was missed at the shelter :).

This is her pen for when she goes to bed at night, when she eats and whenever we are gone for a long time during the day.

Image

Here she is doing her normal loving stretch.

Image

She really loves her pen and is in there sometimes even when the door is not closed. It is such a nice pen, even Rosie will lie on Bambi’s bed.

Image

This is Bambi enjoying being on the deck. In the back is where I feed the squirrels and she enjoys watching them.

Image

Image

When watching tv, I will put Bambi on my lap and Paco and Rosie will be with us. The other night, I looked over and saw Bambi on the couch. Asked Norbert if he put her there and he said no. So she got up on her own :)

Image

Image

Then a little later.

Image

Then much later this.

Image

This is a new baby blanket I got at the thrift store. Bambi really likes it and so does Rosie.

Image

They are still learning to deal with each other. Sometimes Bambi is annoyed with them, because they are so rambunctious, well they are chihuahuas. I hope she is happy here and stays healthy for a long time.

I will try to keep updated here and there with new photos or videos when I can. They are not that great quality photos, just taking with my iPad for those moment shots :)

I have tried a couple of times to write a comment... and failed to find the gratitude for the feline care that you do. Thank you.

What a wonderful thing you and your hubbie have done! Banbi seems like a very special cat and I know she will thrive in your loving home. Thanks for the story board of Banbi in her new home.

My only question is where do you put your angel wings when you go to bed? What a great post and forever family for Bambi.

You may be a "foster failure" ;) but you have earned a place in heaven for adopting Rosie and Paco - and especially Bambi :love: who knew before you did that she was meant for you. :cloud9:
And please, please continue to post updates of Bambi. :cat: She's working her way into our hearts too. :hugs:
