...So, I did bunches of thinking over the Thanks an' Giving holiday. I remembered last year's Thanks an' Giving, which is when my now & furever mom rescued me. I must have been shot about a week befur she saw me. I was in such pain that I could barely walk, an' I hadn't been able to find myself any food at all fur days an' days. I think the angels sent her! If she hadn't fed me, there's no doubt that I would have died.
Getting shot made me skeered an' shy, and all this past year my heart was filled with anger at the man who shot me. Every day, I would remember what had happened, an' get mad all over again. It was so unfair, an' so unnecessary & cruel! Because of that bad-bad man, I would never be a whole kitty again. I thought I would keep this anger inside me fur the rest of my life.
Something happened on Thanks an' Giving day this year, though-- something wonderful! I was thinking, as usual, about how awful it was to get shot, an' I was thinking about the man who did it to me. Then, suddenly, out of the blue, I felt my anger start to melt away! I saw clearly that I *had* to let it all go if I ever wanted to heal my soul... an' I knew that I needed to furgive him.
Once I saw this, I made a decision: I would FURGIVE the bad-bad man, an' make my peace with who I am now (even if I'm not a whole kitty any more). My Thanks an' Giving could be a Thanks an' FURgiving! Then, a huge-enormous weight seemed to jus' float off my back, an' a great happiness filled me. I saw that it doesn't matter if I'm not whole on the outside. My INside is whole, an' that's what counts!
I started to purr an' purr an' purr... and somewhere, somehow, during all the purring, another miracle happened. I GOT ANOTHER ONE OF MY LIVES BACK!!!
