He came it to my life it the year 1990.
He showed up at a flea market that I
and my partners opened in 1989.
He is not only a good friend but he is
a lover. He never asked for much just
a place to sleep and food to eat.
He started sleeping with me in the
winter and we kept each other warm.
He would come to bed with me and
lay his head on my shoulder and get
his body as close to me as he could.
He never went out and he never would
go with any one but me. We grew older
together. One night he woke me up
hollering in my ear. I woke up in a room
of smoke he saved my life. Now my good
friend and lover has gone blind. The
Doctor asked me what I was going to do.
I told him that I would take care of him
for the rest of his or my life. I owe him
that much after he saved my life.
He is now over 96 years old and I am
over 64 years old. He does not ask for
much, just a warm place to sleep and
something to eat and still sleeps with
me but not as much as before.
He is a little demanding now nudging my
hand asking for attention. I put my hand
on him and he is comforted.
I forgot to tell you his name, it's FREELOADER.
He is a stray tabby cat that came saw and stole
my hart. He got his name for his freeloading for
food when he would come out of the woods.
One day he did not go back, he owned me and my
heart from that day on.
He may be blind but he knows where every piece of
furniture is and never misses a step.
He also knows where I am every second I am
home. I love him and he loves me, one day
he will be gone and I will miss him a lot.
Until that day he will have a warm place to
sleep and plenty to eat.
A True Story and still going on to day 11/14/03
I have never had a smoke detector in my house, now I have one in my kitchen, laundry room and each bed room of the house. If it was not for this stray cat coming into my life I may not be here today because I had no SMOKE DETECTORS IN MY HOUSE. The entire room I was in was full of smoke almost to the floor. It came from a wood burning stove. So check your smoke detectors every year and make sure that they work and live long and prosper. If you have a dog or cat and they start making noise, you had better get out of bed and see what is wrong, for many pets have saved lives.
