|Sorry if this is a bit long,always write loads when it's about her...
the most affected have been by a cat,was by a beautiful pure black cat,am became her slave when she was a kitten-and her slave was only six or seven at the time.
Her mum had been abandoned whilst pregnant and the cats protection league took her in,Blackie-as she became to be known as,was brought back in the car by sisters friend whilst sister had brought back Sam on her knee,Blackie had decided to have a wee there and then,good on her.
What made her extra special was her role as an 'assistance cat',am have classic autism and was a lot more severely affected as a child,Blackie was the one living creature am connected with or had awareness of.
She was the world,the meaning of life,she gave more support than any human ever did,she also gave the best squishy hugs and sloppy kisses.
Depended on her,like depending on breathing.
Blackie was very territorial and had the whole local tom cat empire under her control,she would spray out her territory,and if any tom or female cat dared to enter her patch,she would put her head down like a rhino,charge at them and let out this loud honking,grunting meow-scream,she had the humans under her control as well as the cats.
A few years ago,had noticed long before anyone-that something was not right with Blackie,her chest was swollen,despite trying to get this communicated to parents',they refused to believe anything was wrong,when they finally got her to the vets,she was found to have inoperable massive cancer tumours inside her,she could have had a chance if they had listened back when had told them about it.
Watching her being PTS was the most painful,soul breaking experience have ever gone through as was allowing own special baby to die-the only living creature have ever had such profound awareness and connection with.
Am had her cremated and got her the best chest/box they had- with name plate engraved ontop,she sits in the same room in almost exactly the same spot she always did,next to framed photos of her.
Her sister,Sam,has had life threatening illnesses,and there has been times it was thought she would pass over to,but am have put Blackies ashes next to Sam,as if to watch her [Blackie was always protective of her] and the next morning Sam has been jumping around as if nothing has ever happened to her.
She was/is a very special lady,and am very glad had had fourteen years as her slave.
Am still love her today like always did,even though she isn't physically around.
Will get her on catster soon,dont have any photos of her on this laptop,only dad has them.
