Shoosha is leaving us today






Shoosha has never been a very happy cat. We tried to give her the best home we could, but we had no experience and didn't do a very good job. Things got worse and worse, even after the behavioral counselling. Her aggressive behavior, mainly towards Bish, has made life increasingly unbearable for him and she has to go.

We are lucky that the wonderful people at the Girgurim cat sanctuary are willing to take her in. The girls and I will be taking her over there this afternoon. A sad day for us (but not for Bish who is relieved).

Girgurim are looking for a loving home for her - it has to be people with experience with cats, no kids and no babies, and who are willing to be assisted with behavioral counselling for her, and possibly daily medical treatment as well. Please ask any big-hearted cat lovers you know.
I will miss her company and our little chats, even though they tended to be rather onesided. It will bw most difficult for Eldest, who was always her favorite human. But even she realized that there was no choice.

We hope she will find a nice home, and be happier. And even if she has to stay at the sanctuary, maybe she will be happy there.

As an animal lover, I totally understand (and commiserate with) the emotional toil to you and eldest. As a person who is highly allergic to cats, I can also sympathize with Bish's exeperience....

Not fun no matter how it's sliced....

Oh, I'm sorry to hear this. I do sympathize, and I hope that Shoosha will find the home that she needs.

Comments are closed there, so I'll give you the answer I have found to "Who cleaned the Holy of Holies in the Temple?

I used to wonder that, too, and quite a few years ago I learned that they couldn't come in the usual way, so workmen were lowered from openings in the upper levels of the Holy of Holies. Apparently that, and the fact that they had a legitimate reason to be there, was sufficient to protect them.

Now, about those Arabs who profane that spot every day . . .

Sorry I don't have a references.
