It was a cold, rainy deary November day on the Texas gulf coast. Four humans stood inside the shell of a burned out house and discussed what could be done to rebuild it.
The humans in this story are my mom and dad and mom's sister and her husband. Mom's sister and husband want to buy the house and make it a home for the family they want to have one day. The previous owners put it up for sale after it caught fire and burned. It would take a lot of money and some self labor for them to afford this home but they really want it. That day as they discussed what needed to be done they noticed a duck sittin very quietly on a sheet of ply wood, laid over what was left of the rafters in the house. "Hey look at that" my dad said "that duck is sittin on some eggs" All the humans looked up at the duck and that duck looked right back at them but never made a move. "Well" my dad said" she will probably hatch those ducklings before you are ready to start work" "anyway if not we can let her sit till they hatch" said my mom's brother in law. "oh look at that; kitty kitty" said my mom. As the humans looked down a very pretty loving and gentle soul walked in on four legs to the center of the burned out house and said "meerrrow" the she sat down and stared up at the humans. While the men folk talked about blue prints for the house and all the things they would need in order to get a loan, Mom and her sister loved on the ktity and talked to some neighbors about whose kitty it was. The motor cycle dude that lived across the street told them "yea that cat showed up here and I just been puttin some food out for it" mom's sister ask "so it is not any ones cat?" the man said "well I guess we all just kinda feed it and it does it's own thang" mom and her sister did not care for that but they could not take in another cat at this time and atleast the kitty had food, an outdoor shelter and people that loved it from afar. The kitty did not have a name and since it seemed to live in the shelter of the burned out house and it was gray in color, mom's sister said they would call her "smokey" like a gray kitty coming from the smoke of the fire.
As the months passed by work began on the house and the ducklings hatched and moved out to the bay waters with the moma duck, winter turned to spring and by January of 08 the humans had moved into their "new" house on the water. Mom's sister and her husband brought their two kitties two dogs to the new home and "smokey" moved across the street to live mostly with the motor cycle dude and was a regular visitor to mom's sister's house much to the disdain of their outdoor cat Lizzy. Lizzy completely refused to be a house cat she had lived with mom's sister and husband for over 10 years and they tried to make her a house kitty but she hated the inside. For a few weeks after the moved they forced her to stay inside but only till she they felt she would know this was her new home then they let her out and she never would come in again. Lizzy and Smokey agreed to disagree about who had the right away to the yard and neighborhood.
All was well until the day......
