Well, 1 year ago tomorrow, I got me a forever home of my own! Now being with a bunch of other kitties under the firewood pile was not so bad. I mean it was safe in the yard, and we did get food 2 times a day. And whenever Momma came out, I would come by her & she would talk to me & pet me. That is how she knew I was getting very sick. I never really did get to play with my kitten sibs - now momma knows why. I remember staring at the food, hanging my head down, and being so very hungry, and yet I could not eat. She tried to feed me with a spoon away from the other kitties, but I couldn't eat much & just got thinner. Once the grass was pulled out of my nose, I did feel a little better, but by then the infection was deep in my lungs & eyes, and I was a pathetic little mess of snot & bones. But Momma did not give up on me! She took me to the vet & gave me medicine & told me that I had a warm bed & lots of food, and I would never have to worry about the scary outside any more! I have been having my share of problems - one knee has been fixed, and it looks like I will most likely have another surgery on the other side, but I was such a good boy & I try to be sweet. I really do try not to hiss at The Dad - he is always nice to me, I am just a scaredy guy (and he is bigger than me) I know that most likely this little black cat would not be here today if Momma had not helped me, and every day I make sure to chirp at her & touch her with my paws to say thank you & that I love her so much. I have seen & survived much in my 1 year of life, and I am so happy that I can spend the rest of it with a full belly, a soft rug by the window, and more pets & kisses than I can count. Momma says I am just the little black cat she waited for. And ps she is just the momma I waited for!
