Maggie May was found as a stray running loose near a lake, emaciated and suffering from an untreated skin infection. The good samaritan who rescued her and brought her to the veterinary clinic we were working at was unable to pay for the medical care she needed and she was to be euthanized.

It seemed unfair not to give her a chance when all she seemed to need was a good diet and some TLC so, even though we already had six other rescued pets, most of whom required medication and special care for chronic health issues, we took responsibility for her and took her home. Maggie quickly adapted to life as a pampered housepet and even came to accept the other animals with some careful introduction — though she always retained a high prey drive and needed to be supervised around cats and small animals.

When we had to move to the much smaller house in Candler and no longer had a fenced yard as a result, this was really hard on Maggie and, we felt, unfair to her. We decided that she would be better off with someone who didn’t have five other special-needs pets where she could have a yard and be the ‘princess’ and though it took a while to find the right person, in February of 2008 we found her a great new homewe were so happy for her! It was sad to see her move on but maybe our place in her life was just being at the right place at the right time to save her life and let her heal until her perfect family came along.
