She came here like all the others…someone “dropped her out”…she was a tiny little thing…just a ball of fur…and Danny, God bless him, like he did with all the little animals that came to our house….insisted that we keep her. It would be many, many years later… after Danny died…that I would find out that all the little kittens that were “dropped off” here at our house all the time…were actually placed here by Danny himself for me to find .
She was a funny looking little cat…like nature couldn’t make up her mind whether to let he be a calico or what…She hung around the porch everyday waiting to be fed or to get a little petting from me…and eventually I got attached to her. One day I went outside and she wasn’t there. I knew something was wrong and asked Danny had he seen her. He hadn’t and just thought I was being a worry wart.
We asked around and Danny’s mom said she had seen some dogs fighting over something, but couldn’t tell what it was……I can not remember how long she was gone …days?….before I dreamed one night that she was under the bridge that was just around the corner from our house, and she was crying …Before I went to work that day, I asked Danny would he go look there for her. He thought I was crazy, but he did it anyway…and sure enough…there she was…She had been ripped nearly in half by the big dogs…We took her to our Vet and he sewed her back together and cleaned her up the best he could.
Her little paw never did completely heal, but otherwise, she was fine…and she became my “Sweet Pea”.…growing old along with me and giving me what our fur babies give all of us….unconditional love.
She left me this morning…..
and my heart is broken.
Take care of her for me Danny, until I get there …okay ?
GOD BLESS YOU ALL.
