“Can you believe It was six years ago this month, Tiger? Sorry I don’t remember the exact date.”
“What’s that Sue?”
“When we brought you and Shadow home from the cat hotel. Only you weren’t called Tiger then, your name was Miracle. And Shadow was Brother Love – may he rest in peace.”
“Of course I remember Sue. We thought we’d never get out of there! It really was a miracle wasn’t it? But I’m glad you changed my name to Tiger; I needed a fresh start. And I’m glad for the time Shadow had with us in Paradise. He loved everyday he was here. But I’ve always wondered – what convinced you to come and get us?”
“Honestly Tiger, you can thank Bob for that. He’s the one who decided we should go and take a look when we heard about your plight. But once we met you it didn’t take much convincing. Your beautiful green eyes seemed to speak right from your soul into ours. They still do.”
“Aw shucks Sue. Thanks so much.”
“You’re welcome Tiger. Happy Anniversary and may there be many more to come!”
