I wanted to put something positive in the feed, a small bit of cheer to counter the angst I see and feel emanating from people living and writing in this uncertain world.
My mom and dad adopted their cat Sheena from their local animal shelter and had her for nearly 19 years. When she died, my parents agreed they did not want to go through the pain of losing another pet.
It has been six and a half years and they finally caved... yesterday.
This female, brown tiger with white markings is three years old. She has been at the shelter for nearly a year. She arrived extremely malnourished and has a bit of a wobbly gate on the back end, probably from lack of nutrition as a kitten – or from another type of abuse.
She loves tuna. My parents will pick a good name that fits her personality.
Trust me, this little cat’s worries are over.
By the way, did you catch my response to Great White Whale’s Open Pirate Adventure Call? Oh, and I am working on another Maraj story. :-)
