Loosie, I feel much the same, but working with animals and owners as I do, I am constantly reminding myself that I cannot care more about their animals than they do. To do so is to end up miserable, depressed, hopeless and too poor to care for my own, as well utterly useless to help the next animal and family that might actually let me help them. Compassion fatigue and emotional burnout are not pretty, but too easy to fall into when dealing with innocent creatures and not so innocent humans.
