Hi RealMe-

Thanks for your reply. My intern really threw me for a loop; I figured that with middle age, came some maturity ahd hopefully she had worked thru some things. She had told me on numerous occaisions that she has been working with her T for over 12 yrs! Uh, yeah. :/

I was able to find a wonderful vet tech job in a cat practice of all places =) I love kitties, so it was a natural fit. I'm presently owned by two females, ages 10 and 13. I have thought about going into pet-sitting (AKA pet care in people's homes) but pet sitters in my town are like actors in Hollywood: You can't turn around without hitting one. Market way over-saturated. =(
I would definitely suggest that you talk to one of your vet's techs; I'm sure they would love to house/pet-sit for you! I have people in the vet's office ask me all the time. I do housecalls, but dont' stay overnight due to the age of my own kitties...All of us in the office pet-sit a little on the side when we can.

The way you handled transfers with your clients was so respectful and humane. My aunt is a retired clinical psychologist who also used to supervise interns, and she would insist on a "warm hand-off" of a client to another therapist. My ex-t was more interested in getting me out the door and out of their hair. They gave me a knee-jerk referral to three agencies, none of which worked out and one of which was faith-based(she knew I was agnostic).

I am so glad to be free of that whole arrangement. Working with my present T is so drama-free and she really likes to focus on a person's strengths, and refuses to label/pathologize anyone. Part of her philosophy is that her clients need to still be able to function in their everyday lives; they can't do that if therapy constantly weighs on them..

Your kitties sound so very sweet. Give them some extra tummyrubs and scritches for me. I love older kitties; they are so wise and just so peaceful to be around.
