Arrival Story:
When our outdoor cat Baby, who adopted us around 3 years ago, developed lymphoma and we knew his time was limited, we decided when he was gone we would get another Siamese. We had previously had a lovely Siamese girl who lived with us for over 18 years, and had always wanted another one. After watching Baby slowly wither away in front of our eyes and move slower and slower, I knew it was time, even though he was still eating and giving me love. On a sunny Friday afternoon in late October, I made an appointment with our vet to take him in. But when we got home from work, he was no where to be found. We could hear him cry in the backyard, but couldn't find him. My husband looked over the back fence, and Baby looked up at him, extended his paws as if to say "Pick me up, I can't get over the fence!". It broke my husband's heart. He pulled a plank off the fence to let him through. I gathered him up and put him in his carrier and cried all the way to the vet. Normally, he would make a big fuss in the carrier, but this time he layed down and purred, slowly wagging his tail, as if to say "Its all right, its time". I was with him when he went. That weekend I mopped around the house. I wasn't quite ready for a new cat just yet, but that Sunday, my husband saw an add in the paper for Siamese kittens. He called all day, and finally got ahold of the family Sunday night. He made arrangements for us to go over on Monday afterwork. Now, I had a rehearsal for an upcoming music gig one hour after getting home. The family with the kittens was out in the country 45 min away! We took two cars so I could go straight to practice, and fought traffic for an hour. Way out in the country, this family had a house full of well loved Siamese, with the kittens scampering under foot. Tara was a cute, squirmy 11 week old just full of pep and vinegar. I went straight to practice, while my husband took her and went straight to PetCo for food, litter box, etc. She cried a bit in the car, but made herself right at home at our house. When I got home, she was happily playing with a ball in my favorite lounge chair. Now, she has the run of the house, and travels with us to our second home. She meets us at the door every day, and sleeps with us every night. She is a total ray of sunshine. While I still miss Baby, Tara has again reminded me why sharing your life with a cat is so special.
