This is my Kitty Girl who came into my life in a small cardboard box. She was only four or five weeks old when her mother had been run over by a car. My son brought her home hoping that I would take her in, even though we already had three adult cats. I told him she could stay until we found a home for her. She still needed to be bottled fed and taught how to use the litter box. She was such a little princess from the start and before to long had wormed her way into my heart. By this time there was no way I going to give her up.

The first two years of her life she was quite a handful. A little wild child, did not like to be held or loved on. Didn’t even purr for me. But one day she climbed onto my lap, settled in and while I scratched her neck began to purr. I was so shocked!! From that time on she became my little shadow wanting to be loved on every possible moment.

At thirteen years old she was diagnosed with diabetes, which was very hard to accept. But we all adjusted to this and she led a well and happy life for over three more years. We lost her this past December. It has been very difficult for me to accept her passing. She was my special little girl, who will be forever in my heart.
