She appeared one morning at my back door, abandoned by those she thought cared for her!
I will never understand caring for such a beautiful, sweet cat and then all of a sudden rejecting her, turning her away. That’s what happen to “Blackie”.
At first she was a bit fearful, keeping a safe distance, but as the days passed she started to trust me allowing me to love her. I gave her a blanket to sleep on, and fresh water and food twice a day.
From that first morning, and as the days passed, she became my constant companion when I was working in my yard or sitting on my back porch reading and enjoying the day.
She did a cute thing of jumping up and down on my back door the moment she realized I was in the kitchen, letting me know she was hungry.
When I took her food out to her she would always wait before eating until I would pet her. It was so cute and touching. Her way of letting me know she trusted me and was grateful for the love I was giving her.
One morning several weeks ago, when I was in the kitchen making my coffee, I realized she was not at the door and not in her bed. I called for her but she did not come to me as she always would do.
After an hour or so I went out to look for her, and with tears and a very sad heart, I found her in our yard very close to our back porch, her home.
I don’t know what happened to her, but I do know that I miss her so very much, and oh how I miss the joy of just caring for her.
Caring for “Blackie” was a simple joy, one that life gives us, one we often take for granted until lost.
Have a blessed day.
Today, recognize and enjoy the simple, loving joys in your life.
