I adopted your cat two years ago.

You cared about him enough to see he would eventually would get a home.
But you didn't care enough about him to keep him.
You didn't care that he spent 6 long months waiting.
You didn't care he almost froze to death in a cat carrier before he was found.

Why did you remove his claws?
Was it to protect your precious furniture?
Was it because he was affectionate and you didn't want his claws poking holes in your clothes as you held him?
Did you know that a scratching post and proper training would have been enough?
Do you think that was why he was passed by so many times?

Why didn't you give him a collar that fits?
Did you know he has a worn area around his neck now?
It's mostly covered up by fur but you can still see the skin if you look.
Do you care that you've scarred him for life?

Why did you give him up?
Was it because he pestered you too much to go outside?
Was it because of allegeries that could be fixed by medication?
Were you tired of him now the he was bigger and no longer a kitten?
Was it because he was you were moving and couldn't be bothered to take him with you?

He's happy now.
He knows he has a home and someone who loves him.
He knows he has someone who will care for him even if he gets sick.
He knows that he won't be abandoned again even if he can be a pain sometimes.
He still misses you despite what happened and would like to see you again.

I would like to know too. Because he is my cat and I love him.
