In August of 2018, I lost a piece of my soul. My cat of 20 years had to be euthanized, his kidneys were giving out, and his skin began to thicken where water shots were being administered. I could no longer keep him comfortable, every evening when I came home, he would be sitting in front of the back door staring into space. My heart knew it was time to let him go. At the time of his passing, I still had his 16.5-year-old mate. Having her kept me sane after my beautiful boy was put to sleep. She had started to go blind in one eye due to cataracts, my baby girl developed a uterine infection and had to also be euthanized. I was grief-stricken and vowed to not get any more pets, but never say what you will not do. Soon after, my son asked me to take a kitten he could not take care of. I fell in love with her, and as fate would have it while at the gas station, a lady was crying because she had to get rid of her kitten. A tiny ball of black fur, to curious for her own good. Apparently, no pets were allowed where the woman lived, and miss kitty, kitty was very active. We are now a family of three, and both are very active. They love getting into tubs, playing in the water, under cabinets, and rolling around in plastic bags. I needed something to help them burn access energy. I found a cat condo at a pet store here in town, only to see one similar online, priced $150.00 cheaper. If only I would have searched online prior to purchasing the one, we have. I also found out what worked for my beautiful boy and lovely girl does not work for them. One kept getting cat acne, the vet told me to change her cat dishes to ceramic or glass, fancy that all these years and I had no clue. I am not upset; in the end, I am lucky to be blessed with these sweet little beings. Every day I thank God for bringing them into my life.
