Arrival Story: My mommy and daddy found me at the local cat show. Mommy went there with the full attention of finding a Maine Coon. She thought she wanted a brown and white one until she saw me. My cattery wanted cash and it seemed somebody else was interested in me, too. So mommy ran and ran and ran to the bank and back. And with a huff and a puff, I was hers. Meanwhile Daddy was holding me the entire time. And you guessed it, he became my person. About a year later, I finally figued out Mommy was doing all the work so she became my special friend, too. I especially like licking her hair when I'm lounging on the back of the couch.
Aye, ye maties, we are out of commission. This boat ain't sailing for awhile.
Thank you friends for your special gifts of pirate flags. They look so cool on my page. Please accept my apologies for not reciprocating but my mum's computer is very sick and is in 'the cyber hospital. She hopes to get us back to Catstertown soon, maybe even next week. Meanwhile I'm out of action.
Mum started crying while lying in bed the other night. She was lying with her pillow at the end of the bed where I used to sleep. Deep grief engulfed her and she couldn't sleep for hours that night. Then she saw my face again, that last time face, and she felt she did the wrong thing. She needed to have me come home one last time, to live with her just a while longer. I can't give her that. But I can't totally leave her either, not until she understands and believes that what she gave me throughout my life far outweighs the last few anguishing moments. I want to give her the peace she gave me throughout my life.
So I would have been 15 years old today, some folks would say.
But I went to visit a bridge and crossed over it
And now today is still my day
To celebrate, to contemplate, to sit
And look upon my family.
Mum is doing great.
She’s showing pics of me
As I party at the gate.
She looks up and sees dancing
As others anticipate
But she has none today.
Only smiles of gratitude
For having had the chance to care
And love me.
My tail sways as I look down
Hi Mum, "It's the day of a new dawn".
