In my last post, I told you how angry I was with Angelina. I could not believe that she said that I’d forgotten where I’d come from! Those are fighting words to me, and to any cat that once lived on the streets, or in a shelter.
So, I decided I’d make this the best blog in the world. However, before I could post anything, I heard Mom talking to a friend on the phone. She said that our blog has a zero page rank on Google. This is really bad, since web pages can have a page rank of up to ten. Even worse, Mom said that from what she can see, there is practically no one visiting our site except for bots and spammers. I wanted to cry when I heard that. I realized that I wasn’t going to get rich and famous anytime soon. So, I decided that I’d pretend I hadn’t tried to claw Angelina and say, “Hi.” to my friends. Well, that didn’t work. Would you believe that all of those cats turned their backs on me?
So, I prayed, God, this isn’t fair. I do remember where I came from! Please make my friends like me again. Then, a word came to my mind: Remember. And, that’s what I did. I remembered what life was like when I lived out on the streets. The memories were so real that they felt like they were happening now. Here are a few of the things I remembered:
The Cold Day: There was a day that I was so cold that I couldn’t even feel my paws. And, all of the warm spots like the boxes in people’s yards, or air ducts were taken by other cats. I finally saw an igloo that a child had made. I climbed into it. At least I had some shelter.
The Snowstorm: One day, it was snowing so hard that I couldn’t see one foot in front of me. I had never seen so much snow in my life! I was terrified. Then, I heard a cat that I’d gotten into a fight with say, “Hey, you! Come huddle with us.” I was scared that she was trying to trap me, but I went and huddled with her and the other cats anyway. There was nothing else that I could do. I knew that if I didn’t join them, I’d freeze to death.
Being Hungry: I remembered how hungry I used to be. I was lucky if I found food in a dumpster. Sometimes I got sick from that food, but I had to eat it. Otherwise I would have starved to death.
Well, you get the idea. After I remembered, I prayed, OK, God. I did forget. Please stop these memories from coming to me. And, He did. However, I feel horrible now. I don’t blame my friends for being mad at me. While I was snoozing in my pet bed, they almost froze to death. And, I did nothing to help them. That was wrong. So, I am going back to the window. I really need to apologize to Angelina. Then, I will tell my friends how sorry I am. Last, I will let them know that I am willing to help them the next time the weather gets bad around here. I’m not sure if they’ll forgive me, but I have to try. In the meantime, please pray that my friends will accept my apology, cats!
