First of all, let me apologize for not updating my blog in such a long time. Jinx and Milo are fine.
And, there is a new arrival to our household. Her name is Zoey.
Zoey’s arrival is such a complicated story, I’ve decided to serialize it. Ready for Part 1?
Zoey, Part One
I first noticed the little kitten because it looked so much like my late cat, Deej. If not for that fact, I might not have paid as much attention, only because there are so many cats wandering my neighborhood. It’s hard to keep track of which ones are stray or feral, and which ones are cats with owners who let them go outside. But the first time I spotted this tiny kitten, it literally stopped me in my tracks. It was in a parking lot near my house. When I tried to get close to her, she darted away into the bushes.
At first I would only see the tiny cat in the wee hours… on my way home from a 4AM laundromat trip, or walking to my part-time job around the same time. That sweet little face, the spindly legs, white body, and the dark markings… all so much like Deej as a baby! I even started thinking of the animal as The Deejling… a reincarnation, somehow? A supernatural spawn??
Of course, that wasn’t the case. This kitty’s resemblance to my poor, beloved Deej was just a coincidence…
Or… more like “a sign.”
Stay tuned for Part 2, coming soon!
