ATTN: CORPUS CHRISTI residents that use PET SITTERS!! I cannot post this often enough. My Stormi will be gone 4 years March 1st, and he should be in his prime of life!
URGENT! SAVE YOUR PETS LIFE!
I am telling this story in hopes of saving animal lovers the ungodly pain of losing one of their precious, helpless pets due to horrible negligence!
On Thursday, Feb 28, 2008 I was out of town and had employed an in home pet sitter. She was supposed to come twice a day to feed, water and TAKE my fur kids outside.
I knew at times her significant other helped her with her pet sitting. I never met him but I trusted her, to my great sorrow!
I lease my home and there is a pool in my back yard. She KNEW, NEVER to let them out without her! She had even had one fall in when she was sitting once before. I had told her many times how one had fallen in with me out there also. She KNEW, WITHOUT A DOUBT, that I never let them out without constant supervision. She had been sitting for me for a year or more and knew exactly what kind of care they needed.
March 1st, 2008, my sitter was on long distance with me from my home phone reporting how they were eating and that they were fine and I heard a man?s voice, say something about the bottom of the pool, and use obscenities and she said he was running out the door. I can't even tell you what words followed. While talking with me, she and that man that lives with her, let my fur kids out by the pool with BOTH of them in my house unsupervised!
They MURDERED, BY NEGLIGENCE, my precious 3.5 pound, 2.5 year old Yorkshire terrier named Stormi, allowing him to DROWN WITH NO SUPERVISION!
I instructed them to take him to Oso Creek Hospital for cremation. When I called to give them my credit info to pay for it, the lady on duty stated that MY SITTER SAID IT WAS ALL HER FAULT, and she wanted to pay for it.
This sitter?s name is Barbara Airheart. She is listed under pet sitting in the yellow pages as Critter Sitter! Do not trust her! If you do you may end up having to suffer unbearably, like I am doing, if her negligence cost your fur child his or her life!
I was kissing and patting and giving treats to my fur family before I left my home on Thursday, telling them Mommy will be back and I loveeeeeee ya?ll!
When I rushed back to town and got to my house Sat late and opened the door I was missing a tiny little boy named Stormi, that suffered a horrible death at the hands of a negligent Critter Sitter! The next time I see my precious Stormi, he will be ashes in a box I pick up from the crematory!
I pray this letter will help you all save your fur babies lives! It?s too late to save my little boy Stormi!
