Little Kitty - SOLC 26
This weekend as my husband and I were cleaning out our back rooms and moving everything to the garage for storage, we found a kitten. Normally, I detest cats but this little kitten was adorable. She was all grey except for her little paws which were bright white. She ran into our garage. I was put in charge of getting her out. It took quiet a while for me to coax her out from behind boxes and furniture. I doubt she had much if any human contact before now.She meowed a lot, sniffed my hand, and finally agreed to come closer. I picked her up. I quickly put her back down outside the garage when I felt her clawing my hand. The dog was outside, so she hissed and quickly scurried away. The cat was no longer my concern and I put her out of my mind. Until this morning when I saw her again.
She was lying in the middle of the road, dead. She was easily recognizable by her bright white paws. I couldn't believe it. I never thought that might be her fate. Sadly, I didn't think about her at all. After seeing her this morning, she has ever been on my mind. Should I have done something other than just let her go? Should I have taken her in? Should I have let my garage be her home? Should I have found some one to take her? All these questions swirling around in my brain making me doubt my former detest for cats. They deserve to be loved. They deserve to have a family. The cute little kitten won't have that chance. So sad!
