When I have spaghetti Care drops on his back and opens his mouth so I can dangle a piece of spaghetti into his mouth!
My mother was feeding a stray feral cat and she had kittens. One day in early November 1989 we were hit with about 2 ft of snow. When my mother went outside to feed the mamma, Care was jumping through the snow following his Mamma. My mother brought him inside and called me to see if I wanted him. I had a Siamese, Sasha, who didn't like other cats so I was afraid to. About two weeks later the neighbor boy caught the siblings under his house and gave them all to my mother to tame and find homes for. I came out that night and fell in love with Careforme and brought him home. About an hour later I couldn't get his sister, the calico, out of my mind and drove all the way back to my parents to get her too. For almost 6 months I came home from work every day to change rooms between Sasha and the kittens. After they were older she tolerated them.
I named him Careforme because he seemed to be so happy that someone cared for him. I call him Care mostly. He is a big, loveable cat who can never be held enough. When I took them to have their pictures with Santa, Santa wanted to buy him from me! Of course I said, "No Way!" He can be quite insistent that he gets tons of attention. He has to be near me and thinks he has to always be touching me with his paw. I tell him I should have named him Klinger!
This is one of the saddest days of my life. My little Careforme went to Rainbow Bridge tonight. I knew his time was coming nigh and tried to baby him as much as I could. As soon as I started making the cats dinner he let me know he wanted to eat. For the past day he would only take chicken broth and a little chicken I pureed for him. He didn't want the chicken but he drank quite a bit of the broth and then laid down to nap. I kissed him on top of his head and he settled down. I went to the barn to feed the feral cats. When I returned 30 minutes later I saw him laying on his side by the refridgerator. He was gone. The other animals were just laying on the floor, all very quiet. They knew he had gone to Rainbow Bridge. Careforme was a very special cat that I loved very much. Marnie has been sleeping with him for the past several weeks and she stayed right next to him as I got him ready to be cremated. She watched everything very closely and bent down to sniff him goodbye. Oh, how I will miss you my precious baby boy. 20 1/2 years wasn't long enough. You will be free of pain and your youthful playfulness restored and you and your sister, Tearineye can chase each other once again. Rest my baby and I will see you again one day, God willing. Kisses, hugs and love from the depths of my soul Care. Good night my little baby.
