Thomas found his new companion. A sweet, mellow boy. Thomas has been in need of an emotional support pet, having been diagnosed with depression. I’m so happy we are finally making this happen. ❤️❤️❤️
This is an incredibly delicate situation. Lillian has a fear of cats and is not at all pleased with this decision.
I spent hours talking with her last night, and about an hour just now. Which is actually an improvement. We talked about it rather than her having a full blown meltdown; which is what happened when I told her about a month ago! I feel in the end this is a positive as it helps her to confront her fear.
This is why I have been distracted for the past month. Times like this are what make parenting heart achingly difficult. Needing to do something beneficial for one child, that is something the other child is against. My brain and heart have been in a vice. ❤️💔❤️
