Da Cat Who Came in from the Cold

Me and My Momma: A Love Story

So I know I said I were tired, and I am. But I got one last thing I gotta tell y'all.

For years, I'd been living da wild life of an outside dude. I'd been living at da partment complex, killin lotsa rats. And da were plenty of rats, believe me, one even ran over my momma's foot. Sorry momma, guess dat one got past me. And going back to da big ol estate behind da complex and killin birdies. Nothin like bird guts. Anyways, I were getting older and all dat wild livin were getting to be hard on my bones. So I figured I better start lookin for a momma.

And I didn't want just any momma. I wanted a pretty young blonde trophy momma. Dat are da kind of momma dat can make an old guy settle down for good. And I sees one bringin me kitty food. And not just any kitty food, her sister's cat's Fancy Feast. So not only were dis one pretty, she had da good food too.

Some of y'all may be wondering how an old guy like me got a pretty blonde trophy momma. Well, da keys to it are persistence and flattery. Not insulting and acting rude like some guys think. I would hear my momma's loud Mustang going vroom vroom in da parking lot den da loud honk from it lockin den da loud jingle jangle from her million and one keychains. So I'd come runnin like a dog. Yeah, it are a little degradin. But it are all part of da plan. I'd go sit with my momma when she were out by da pool tannin. Even though she didn't have no food. It showed her I really cared and valued her for something other than da Fancy Feast.

But make sure to let da potential momma know dat dere are other potential mommas around too. Maybe don't come round for a couple days. Make her worry a little.

And work da pity angle. Get caught out it in da rain outside her door and cry. Cry loud.

And once you get in, act like you are so shocked. Make her feel special. Act like you's never seen a bed before. If you don't get up on da furniture yourself, not only do your pretty momma help you up (which also makes your back feel better), but you get cat treats for being up on it too.

Den when you decide to counter surf, your momma thinks it are cute you is being so bold, not annoying.

Anyways, things was going good with my momma, but den she moved back home with her family. OMC, three more people, another dog, and two more cats??? Da momma's sister - I remembered she gave me food some too, so she were ok. And dat grandma, she are ok, once I figured out she were not gonna eat my head. She were just kissin it. She made bacon too - yum yum!! And dat grandpa with his music, he and I spent lots of time listening to jazz. Which are nice, because while my momma got some good musical tastes - I like da exotica and da Willie Nelson, she are also a big Britney Spears fan. And dat music are more Maurice's speed. Da downfalls of pretty young mommas.

And da dogs - well I learned dogs can be nice. Dey would chase off Maurice when he wanted to play and my back were hurting.

And da other kitties - well Maurice are kinda a big goofball, but he are nice. And Jezebel, she are pretty nice too, even if she did try to steal my foods too much.

So I's had a pretty good last year with my momma, it were nice. But I's tired now and she understands dat. And dis weekend I gots four people doting on me and it were pretty nice.

Dat are my story, and it are special to me. So kitties, go love your mommas or daddies. Dey are all pretty special.

This is a really special story Charlie, I really took it to heart. I'm snuggled next to my mommy right now, there is nothing as important as a mommy. I know your mommy loves you a whole bunch Charlie, and I know you are awful special to her. She's doing the right thing for you because she loves you with all her heart. I hope your story touches lots of people's hearts and somewhere out there some little kitty who is living outside and looking for a mommy to take care of them has that special mommy read this story and take them in. You are one heck of a mancat Charlie, lots and lots of purrs for you and your mommy.

We kitties and our mom loved your story, sweet boy Charlie. What a handsome fellow you are. And such a clever guy too, figuring out how to get yourself a loving momma. We know there will be lots of angel furiends to greet you over the Bridge and show you the "ropes" in Heaven. We hope it will help your momma to know that. So run free like a kitten again, Charlie, and always watch over your momma. Purrs from Harley, Cody, Raj & their mom

What a great touching. And yet so cool, like really cool. You played your Mom to be like a harp and yet you honestly wanted to be with her and she couldn't resist. Awesome.

Take those memories with you my friend, for they will keep you company at night. Of course they do party a lot at the bridge so you probably won't get to homesick. And remember you can always visit.

Your awesome!

Hello sweet kitty and welcome to the bridge. It is true this has got to be one of the toughest choices you mom could ever have made for you but you know she loves you as much as you love her for that is the only way she could ever help you cross over.
Fly free sweetie I am kinda an old pro at this now so you call on me if you need me.
