Bailey

So - after vowing not to adopt another senior pet, this is Bailey, adopted from the same rescue group we got our ex-dog from. She's 10 years old, we're not sure of the breed, and, yes, she looks a whole lot like our ex-cat, Izzy, who we still miss terribly every day.

Bailey has been with us about two weeks now. She's a funny old girl, already yowling for meals and snacks, pawing at us when she wants affection or attention, and generally being, well, just great so far. Nobody could act like our old friend Izzy, but this girl will do just fine. My only goal is to give Bailey the best of everything. She, like the dog we adopted about two years ago, is from Tennessee, and the cruel bastard who had her before had her de-clawed. That's cruelty as far as I'm concerned (and in my state, where it is illegal).

Anyway, this is Bailey. She's quite all right.

Sounds as though she "landed with her face in the butter!" (a very good place to be) and is already taking charge of things - which is as it should be. Her years will be lengthened because of your good care. Double blessings on you, sir - for adopting and for choosing a senior.

Declawing is certainly cruel and should be outlawed everywhere. We adopted a pair of black sisters (Madeline Claire and Jasmine Marie - both of blessed memory) who had been declawed by a previous owner. They didn't seem to have suffered any permanent trauma other than an initial reluctance to let us handle their paws, which they eventually overcame and actually appeared to enjoy when it came time for a nail trimming "manicure" - especially since the manicure was accompanied by lots of pats and kitty treats

Yep, our last three pets were seniors. Izzy, though, was so beyond spectacular that I actually don't mind another older pet. Izzy was incredible. Now, Bailey is sleeping in her beds and playing with her toys, and I choke up all the time.

Good for Baily, she has moved into her new home and will soon have you and your wife in the pads of her paw. Her every wish will be your command, she will allow you and your wife to live there. Lol. That’s how it is, they move right into the heart and take over.
I have never declawed a cat, I just buy new furniture every year or two. I’ve had some friends whose cats never claw furniture. Despite all my cats I’ve ever had knowing what NO means, they all claw my furniture. Still, declawing one has never been an option.

What a love! Great job, man - that’s awesome.

Yeah we had a stray adopt us who had been declawed - except for one! Which, speaks to what she must have gone through.

That’s very cool that you are giving her experience to contrast what she has been through... well done.

Another Tennessee refuge. That state and animals - our late dog, who we lost in February, as discovered to have actual buckshot under his pelt. Seriously. Good lord. It never seemed to bother him, but the vet was absolutely stunned.
