Okay, today sucked! First we euthanized a horse and then later a tiny kitten, in my care, dies. It really makes a person question why they do the work they do. At work, we have a board with pictures and letters. Not all are success stories but the ones that are, are the reason why people like me continue on.

For example, last August we got a horse in that had been hit by a semi-truck. Amazingly, the horse only had bruises, a few broken ribs and a massive laceration. At the beginning of April, we received a picture of him at a barrel racing competition!

Loosing that kitten is really hard, but then I think of my Toby cat and realize that I had to try.

I just have to remember that I can not save them all, but they all will remember that someone cared enough to try.
