Last year she made the trip over the Rainbow Bridge, I was devastated! Heartbroken does not even cover how I felt. For days after I would find myself looking down near my feet and look for her. I swore I would never have another, I just couldn't imagine going through the heartbreak of losing an animal again that I loved with all my heart.
Then in September my daughter and her husband had to move in with us for a bit as he was transitioning out of the Army. They had a cat, she was very aloof and really didn't want any one to mess with her at all, so I just let her be. Slowly she started to come around me more and would let me pet on her. When they got ready to move my daughter was 9 months pregnant, with a 3 year old and a 1 year old. Their house is pretty small so I said just leave the cat with me, she is fine and doesn't bother anything or anyone here. I didn't really want a cat, but guess what? I got one!
This cat who I have named Miss Kitty is now my constant companion, she follows me everywhere, and cries for me if I go to the garage or to the room where I ship all my orders from. She loves to be with me when I am working in my shop area and loves to play and bat at the thread and my yardstick. She will actually sit behind the sewing machine watching me as I sew.
She also loves to sit on the desk when I am on the computer and will walk in front of the screen as if to say hey you are not paying me enough attention!
I had no intention of opening my heart so wide open again to another animal. Shhh don't tell anyone but I love this cat. Cookie Monster Dog will always hold a very special place in my heart, and no animal will ever replace her, but it appears I now have another constant companion. My heart has healed and I now know the joy of loving an animal again.
Love them with all your heart, cause they sure love you even on your worse day!
