I saw this little plaque in a shop recently and was reminded of all the wonderful kitties who have shared their lives with me.
There have been many so I will only mention a few. There was Benjamin the long haired Himalayan (originally named Elsa until we learned she was a he) who lived with us for seventeen years. There was Henry who we faithfully administered insulin to when he was diagnosed with diabetes. (Yes, I did it! Me! the one who has never even looked at a needle when getting a shot of my own!) And who can ever forget Joey, the beautiful boy we got for my mother in law and who we inherited back again after she passed away. Soft and affectionate. Sweet lap cat (and ‘printer’ cat, too.)
And then there was ‘Little Ann’ (aka ‘Annie’) who will always have a special place in my heart. Annie was the only Siamese cat I ever had and she was a chocolate point beauty with deep blue eyes. Eyes that could read your mood and comfort you. We got her as a kitten and she lived with us for the next twenty years.
And now there is Tiger, the sweet tabby boy with the piercing green eyes. Eyes that talk. Eyes that ask ‘will you please come and pet me?’
I am thankful for each one of these dear feline companions. ~ Sue
