Playing with her best friend, Blanche the ferret.
Never had a complaint from her
Favorite Nap Spot:
Diamond Cat food
Made a good mommy to a stray kitten I had brought home (who actually was killed a month after her)
indoors and outdoors
I had just had a very traumatic miscarriage and decided I wanted to get a cat. Back then, they had a cat pound... kind of the deathrow for felines. She was only 6 months old. When I came in, they had rows of tiny wire cages and I looked only briefly. Hope reached her little white paw out through the cage bars and was quite playful with me. Her colors were wonderful... never another cat like her in all the world. She only cost $5 to adopt and she was worth much more to me. The first night, I had developed an infection from the miscarriage. Hope wanted to sleep on me and I was in such pain, I just couldn't. It broke my heart because she was so affectionate right off the bat and I couldn't return the affection. However, we would have many more occasions to cuddle. The nextdoor neighbors had watched her chase squirrels on their lawn and stalk a skunk family into the back yard. They loved to watch her and she was a joy to everyone.
When she was a little older than a year and a half, my friend that lived downstairs came and knocked on my door. She told me that she thought Hope had been hit by a car. My friend had found her downstairs, outside on the two steps that lead to her apartment from the driveway. Hope was still alive, but was not well at all. I got a ride to the vet, but it was after hours and the vet just stuck an IV in her and put her in a cage. Of course, by morning she was dead. To this day, I cannot figure out where she was hit or how she ended up on the granite steps outside. It doesn't really matter. She was gone... my Hope was gone. She was survived by felines: Nala and Aspen (killed by a car a 30 days later). It was a tough year.
