I hope the rivers of heaven are cool and clear, and filled with all of the delightful aquatic vegetation treats that Plecos love best, old friend. It’s just not going to be the same around here without you.
Stars, the Amazing Starling, has gone beyond. Farewell, my special friend, my little teacher, my communicator, my Mommy’s Bird. June 26th, 2008 – July 15th, 2018
I know that many of you have been through similar situations. You have adopted animals who, for one reason or other, had their worlds turned upside down. Some had families who had to move and couldn’t take the pets. Others got lost themselves, and never found again. Others, like Ryder, were grieving for the loss of their owners to age or illness. Ryder’s presence in our home, and in my heart, have given me a greater appreciation of what I’ve attempted to help so many of you through.
How courageous these dear beings are. It is truly an honor to be chosen to provide the comfort and love the animals need to once again trust that their world, this new world, is a safe one.
I hope to be able to start taking consultation appointments again the weekend of October 17th. However, these will be very limited at first, with the following necessary restrictions:

I want to thank everyone for their kind thoughts, and all the support we have been shown.
Why am I hurting so deeply over the inevitable loss of Kai, which his vets say will happen only weeks from now? I guess to those who love their animal family members, that is mostly obvious. For me, it goes deeper. Many people say that they “would not be here if not for their animals”. For me, however, that is not just a sentimental metaphor, or even a deeply ingrained feeling. It is a literal truth.
