Daily Prompt: Fortune

This is Benji and Sue asked me to tell you about my good fortune.

When my mama delivered me and my brothers and sisters it was into a home where forty other cats already lived with human Cat Mama.  From the start I knew it wasn’t normal.  It was too dirty and crowded, food distribution was not fair and I was hungry.  When I couId talk, I discussed it with some of the older ones there including One-Eye, NoTail and Sheba. They told me it was better than living under the house which they used to do  and they frightened me with their before stories. I wondered at my fate.

After a few months human Cat Mama disappeared and soon after that some other humans came to rescue us.  I don’t remember much from that time, other than when I woke up I was in a new place.  I felt strange and my ear was bleeding.  Just when I was ready to despair,  my fortune turned to the very best it could be!  Three humans came into my room and started petting me and loving me.  Even though I was afraid, I was on my best behavior so I would be chosen.  And that is how  I came to live with Bob and Sue and Grandma and Tiger.  Now I sleep on a big bed (or wherever else I want to), and it’s all you can eat!

This is my picture when I first arrived home.  I was little then.

I’m so happy in my new home.  My chopped ear reminds me where I came from.  That is the meaning of Fortune to me.

  1. Benji, what a touching story! I am so happy for you! You have come through so much, and I commend you for still trusting humans when Sue, Bob, and Grandma sealed your good fortune with their love and safekeeping. I think you are adorable! May your forever home be blessed always, as mine has been.

  2. My Mom and Dad feel blessed to have me with them too–and so do I. I just wish sometimes there were another cat in the house. . . ❤ ^-.-^ ❤

    • I’m happy that I have Tiger though sometimes it is not easy. Maybe if you wish hard enough it will come to pass!
