Last weekend while visiting Michigan for a football game my husband Steve noticed a small tabby cat hanging around his motel door. Never one to pass up a cat cuddle, he soon discovered that this cat was friendly and quite hungry so he shared what food he had with her (a muffin). Steve is a big-time animal lover, so much so that he often captures bugs (not animals but creatures nonetheless) that have gotten into our home and releases them outside.
He was traveling with three other guys, all of whom needed to be back home by Sunday afternoon and so he had to leave her behind. There are strict rules against taking pets over the border and he would have had to get her vaccinated and be able to show the records to border patrol. It was Sunday; it just wasn’t going to happen. As any animal lover can tell you it is not easy to forget an animal in need once you’ve looked into their eyes and Steve could not stop thinking of her when he got home.
