I will never forget October 1, 1982 or February 25, 2004. These are the dates that my precious Momma Kitty entered and left my life. She was the most special fur baby and companion I ever had. She was with me through thick and thin- through some wonderful ife experiences and some pretty awful ones- she was always by my side with a snuggle and a purr.
I loved how she used to sleep curled up against my neck and heaven forbid, I have a yogurt to myself! It was the only people food she liked but boy if I opened one it was like most cats that hear the can opener. She'd bolt for my lap and try to stick her paw in the cup to pull it to her. I guess she could smell it in the air. So here I'd sit, a spoonful for me, a spoonful for her..and so on.
The year she passed was also the year we had 3 major hurricanes hit here within 6 weeks. A traumatic year to say the least. My son was in 1st grade and I remember that day, she looked so bad and I could see she was struggling. I took my son to school and then loved on her and held her in my arms. I took her to the cat hospital but she didn't quite make it. I am glad her last memory was a loving one.
When I picked my son up from school that day, I told him. He looked at me so sweetly and said "Don't worry Mom, she's in kitty heaven right now, playing with toys and chasing lizards. Got to love that boy of mine!!
Who was your most special pet?
