I was just invited to join this group. My story is also on my page, but will be glad to re-post it here. Well, my meowmy lost four cats, her home and everything she owned in Hurricane Katrina. Friends of hers offered her to put a trailer on their property, so she did. In May 2006, she had been adopted by a brother and sister (Louis Armstrong and Emma Barrett). They had been left at a vet clinic at the age of 2 weeeks and hand raised. Anyway, I had been born to one of the barn cats on the property. My meowmy helped her friend by putting out food for us. I noticed she and this big black furry cat came out of the trailer twice a day to take a walk. I started to walk with them, and got to chat with the other cat. He said his name was Louis, and his meowmy was THE BEST!! He and his sister had canned food twice a day, and dry food out all the time. Their coats were brushed every other day, and they had treats and toys as well. And, they slept with their meowmy on the bed. Sounded pretty good to me. By this time I had lost my two littermates to cars, and I was lonesome.
So, one day when the lady (now my meowmy) came out of the trailer to feed us, I just followed her inside. I looked around, and there was Louis. He remembered me, and showed me where the food dishes were. Meowmy picked me up and hugged me.....do you want to stay with us? I touched noses with her, she laughed and put me down. During the day when she was at "work" I would go outside. But one really cold, wet day last winter she said "Benny Grunch - do you want to stay inside today?" I told her YES!!! - good thing she understands CAT. Well, when she came home that day there were toys from one end of the trailer to another. All meowmy did was laugh and say "Guess you all had a good time".
Well, after that, I was a part of the family. Now we live in a real house, and we even have stairs to run up and down on. I am one Happy Cat!!!
