For the first time since starting my new job, I was actually bouncing in the morning. I could not believe my e-mail inbox, when I checked it before leaving the house. As it was Gem's 10th birthday yesterday, I assumed that there may have been a rosette or two given by a fellow Dogster...Little did I know the real surprise was about to be revealed.
My darling baby Brother was named 'Cat of the Day'. There he was on the main page, looking as handsome as ever. I was (and still am) both shocked and delighted. He was selected just two months after Smudge was chosen for the honour. I'm hoping that no one thinks there's a Catster conspiracy about!
My heart is once again touched by not only his title, but the out pouring of love and goodwill our family has received by the community. From the friendship requests, rosettes, treats, corralle additions, and visits to Kamara's page, I am just so happy for people to see how loved my Brother is. Every pet has a special story, and their story is able to live on through these pages we create.
Last month, out veterinary hospital made a donation to The University of Guelph in Kamara's name. The donation will be used to further the advancement of animal medical studies. We learned of this through a letter we received in the mail from the university. I could not think of a more touching tribute, and having Kamara be named 'Cat of the Day' is just another example of reflected love in the universe.
I'm happy that tomorrow is Friday, because I can spend the evening replying to Pawmails, and returning as many rosettes as possible. I cannot believe my little cat went from nothing, to 12 rosettes and a star to boot!
It is bittersweet though. Whilst driving home at 10:30 tonight, I thought I'd come home and give Kamara a hug for his achievement. I had forgotten, yet again.
