Whew! Talk about at the last hour! Literally! Kauffey boarded transport to come to California on Valentine's Day morning. Right after he loaded, he bumped his wounded eye. The transporter cleaned and medicated it when they laid over that night, but he appears to have rubbed it.
While Kauffey was spending the night in Arizona an idea came to me. Arizona? Dear friend Debbie lives in Arizona. Over the years, beginning in 1999-2000, Debbie has taken in 6 rescues via TIER. Dynasty, Chablis, Luna, McKayla, Munchee, Jesse . Would she be willing to give Kauffey a home? Afterall, he would be lucky #7 and he was already in Arizona!
Messages and phone calls in the middle of the night. EARLY morning Frenzied communication with Debbie and the tranporter (who was only an hour away from Debbie, but headed to California and would have to reroute...not far though). Debbie's response? "Sure. I just need to set up a stall for him," Love Ya Debbie!
So, Kauffey arrived at Debbie's this morning, has a bin full of grass hay and, after he has a bit of time to settle in, she will treat the boo boo on his eye and determine whether or not she needs to get a vet out. Pictures of Kauffey at his new HOME to come soon!
From Debbie: He is safe and will be loved as part of our family for the rest of his life Thank you
