Nemo Finds a New Home
On October 5, 2009, Nemo FINALLY went to a new home. This was a bittersweet day for both Gerry and I. We acquired Nemo back in February 2004, when Gerry and I were engaged. I begged Gerry to take him. We brought him to my house for a few hours, I fell in love with him and that was it. Over the years, Nemo has brought us so much laughter, and many, MANY tears. We worked very hard to get him healthy so that he could live a long life. He was a great cat...very good with Maria who "loved" on him all the time. He never hissed at her or showed any aggression in any way. However, he drove us crazy for food. He begged constantly and this became a challenge once we had kids. We just couldn't keep him quiet. So, between the begging and Maria "loving" on him, it was time for Nemo to go. A few hours after posting him on Craig's List, a kind man responded. We met him the next night and had a great feeling about him. It was a sad night, but we knew we were doing the right thing.
So far, the man has kept in touch with us by calling and emailing to let us know that Nemo is adjusting really well. We feel really good about the situation, but we will always have a special place in our hearts for Nemo! Goodbye buddy! We will miss you!
