His bags are packed. His car is full. The house is empty. He picks me up and says, “Sorry kitty, I gotta go. I don’t why I have to go. I just do.” He said, “Don’t worry, I have someone who is going to take you.” I was sad, and I just meowed as to say, “No! Please stay! We just found each other. We had so much fun together.”
He took me to this other guy. I was like, “I just want you!” He said, “I am sorry. I have to go. You can’t come with me. It’s not time for you to go. You won’t like the other kitties there.” I was so mad at him. Why did you even find me that day? Why didn’t you just leave me be? You gave me love, and food, and a house, then you just drop me off with some guy? I sat by the door every day waiting for you come back.
You never returned. Days tuned into months, and months turned into years. I had gotten to really love this guy who took me in. I realized that if you hadn’t found me that day. If you didn’t help me love again. I might have never know that is was possible. For that, I was always thankful. This nice man took in my two cats. They said they wanted to spend time with me, because I was getting old. I think they just wanted a nice place, with food.
One night I was sleeping on my guys bed. I heard a voice that seemed like I heard it before. I know I have gotten old; just getting off this bed is a chore. I manage to get myself off, and check out the voice. OMG! It was the guy! The guy who left me. He called me over, picked me up, and I gave him some kisses. Then he put me down and I ran back to my guy. He said, “Don’t worry kitty, I won’t take you. I just came to see you one last time. I am glad you are happy, kitty. That’s all I ever really wanted.”
I was a little confused; I was happy with him. He was the one that wasn’t happy where he was. Thanks to him, I found this great house and great food. I never had to be lonely or scared, even though I was really sad when he left. I remember feeling like it must be me.
Then I remember I have this other guy to take care of me. He said, “No worries, kitty. If I leave you, come with me. I would never, ever leave you lost and scared.”
