It was mid-to-late August 1993 when you first introduced yourself to me; I don't remember the exact date.
You visited my house most nights and I let you stay overnight if you wanted. You seemed to have a home and I wanted to find out where it was.
On this day 13 years ago, I got my answer.
It was September 18, 1993, between 9 and 10pm. You liked to sniff and discover everything, and you went into a place in the storage room across from my apartment. I picked you up to bring you into my house. When I turned around, a woman stood outside the room. I asked her if she knew your parent(s).
She told me she was your mom and called you Black Cat. I found out your house was in a different section of my apartment building!
I explained what happened for a few weeks. She told me that you didn't like the other two cats in the house and asked me if I could give you a home with no other cats. She wanted to make sure I could give you a good home, so I showed her my house. She saw all the stuffed toy animals I had and liked other things about the house as well.
She asked me again if I could give you a home.
Of course I could! I promised that I would keep you as an only cat.
This was the beginning of my 11 years as mom of my first cat. Yes, this was 13 years ago, but I will always remember it as if it happened yesterday.
I will always love and miss you, my Abby catgirl.
