Buttons has been with us well over a year now and he’s still haunted by the demons of his former abuse. We never really know what goes on in his mind. He seems to suffer flash-back type episodes where he’s reliving some horror. In those moments, he doesn’t recognize us and often lashes out. We have been working with several professionals, in hopes of finding a cause and cure, but so far, nothing is working as we had hoped, and no medical cause can be found for his behavior. We take things one day at a time with Buttons.
There is another message that we’d like to get across … abusing an animal can lead to long term, permanent emotional and psychological damage. Rehabilitation doesn’t always work. Damn those that abuse animals.
