I was getting items from a storage unit after a romantic break-up, when up walks a kitten, meowing to grab my heart-strings (how she knew this would work I call a God-thing). I tried to ignore her, not being in a very good mood due to the break-up, but when I opened the truck door to jump in, she did first!
As I’m driving to my new apartment, she’s under the pedals, then up on the seat-back, sniffing at and sucking on my ear lobe! Needless to say, she wasn’t about to leave me, I believe sensing my need for another living soul’s company. I’m so thankful I was a cat person, for after getting her food and water dishes (a margarine container didn’t cut it for water, as she’d playfully knock it over, spilling the water, with her front paw every time I filled it up), she stayed with me, even through four homes, for another 17-1/2 years.
When she passed a month ago, I was heartbroken, but know she’s awaiting my arrival in heaven, to show me around!
