Oh my gosh, you are my hero! I only lasted about two years, the emotional part, long hrs, asshole Drs. etc… really got to me. I almost quit the field but switched to a low-cost spay/neuter clinic which gives me the thrill of fast-paced care but not so much of the sadness. I still haven’t gone for my license yet, on the fence about it. Are you glad you became registered if you don’t mind me asking? It’s such an expense and I’m already paying for my BA in an unrelated field, not sure if I could handle the cost. At the time it absolutely made sense to me! I graduated in 2006 from a good school and had a satisfying career from it. If you are in a state where you can work without your license it might not be the best idea financially! Any other questions please feel free to message me, would love to help in any way I can!
If she cares so much about being cruelty-free, surely suddenly rehoming an animal would extremely stressful for Mittens; does this count as cruelty? Animals kill animals – they don’t have the luxury of choosing to live a vegan lifestyle and any dietary patterns are evolutionary as well as biological. Both you and mittens have a mutually beneficial relationship. This seems like she just doesn’t like cats and is using her ideology as an excuse. I teared up when you said you went home to spend time with him, mittens will be there with you through it all, that it won’t, she wants to control in this relationship and this is a huge red flag esp for me, my two cats mean so much to me and yeah even tho I’m lonely through quarantine and all I’d drop anyone I’d be if they gave me that ultimatum.
