3. When no one is around, I get up on furniture my Mommy has said “Teddy, No” about!!.
Now for the second part of today’s blog………………I will tell you a little bit about my new baby brother Teddy. You already know a lot but I’ll “re-tell” the whole thing for you just in case.
Mom and Dad were beyond sad when they had to help me go to the Rainbow Bridge on December 2nd. But my time had definitely come and I was struggling to stay. My departure was with my Mom and Dad and my beloved vet and his vet tech and I felt LOVE until my last breath. I was wrapped in a warm fleecie so I was comfy and off I went to the Bridge and became an Angel.
They were too upset to even consider adopting another cat at that point but they KNEW their lives would never be “right” without a kitty in them so they just waited for the pain in their hearts to lessen. They actually went to the shelter (where I was adopted 17 years ago!) here in our area once and went into the cat room but both of them couldn’t stay in the room – they realized quickly that it just wasn’t quite TIME. So Mom kept an eye on the shelter website to see who was arriving and who was being adopted….then last Friday, February 10th, the shelter listed three new cats, all under a year old! They didn’t have photos yet so Mom and Dad didn’t know what the kittens looked like but one was 11 months, one was 8 months and one was 6 months and they decided to go to the shelter FIRST THING Saturday to see the cats. They were the FIRST to arrive…….and when they walked into the cat room my Dad saw a little ginger guy in a cage sound asleep and said to Mom “do you think that might be HIM?” Mom and Dad walked over and read the information about the ginger and white kitten and it turned out he was 11 months old and looked a whole lot like ME! No extra toes like me, and slightly different tabby markings but a LOT like me. He woke up and stuck his little paw out the side of the cage and both Mom and Dad knew for sure he really WAS the one. Why? Well, 17 years ago when they adopted ME from the shelter, I had stuck my paw through the cage to say hi when they walked in the room just like this little guy had done. It was a sign. The lady in the shelter took him out of the cage and let Mom and Dad see him and he was a REAL LOVE BUG……he was making biscuits all over Mom’s coat, he was hugging her and Dad, he was purring loud……..he was just doing his best to say “TAKE ME HOME PLEASE” – so they did. They renamed him TEDDY because that’s the name my Dad wanted the next kitty to have.
This photo was taken the minute he got to the house that day………..
Love and Hugs, from Angel Sammy, Guardian Angel to Teddy!!
