I put up a photo of a friend’s cat on the Hemal Radia page on Facebook a few days ago. Another friend of mine, Jen Reynolds, commented with a story of an experience she had. Enjoy
“I found a cat almost 9 months ago. The funny thing about it is I was talking about how I wanted to get a cat because my dog (Note: Jen’s dog is “Chaco”, her chihuahua, who she calls her “5lb rat”) is afraid of a lot of things including other dogs but he seemed to really like cats when I took him for walks.
I talked about wanting a cat for a couple weeks on Facebook, Twitter, and to my friends. I am not sure why I wanted one so bad but I knew that if I felt it… It was something that I needed and kept my eyes open and even planned to visit a shelter the next week.
One morning at 4 AM I heard a kitten crying. Half of her tail was cut off and she was bleeding. I took her in and bandaged her up (I have scars on my arm to prove it LOL)
I thought I was helping her and was grateful to do so. What I did not know is how much she would help me. I have a medical condition that sometimes flares up in cold weather or barometric changes and every time I have an ache or pain, this precious cat lays right on top of it and warms the area up. It really does ease the pain! There have been times when it was raining all night and when I woke up she was on top of my chest and stomach just to keep me warm which reduced my pain
It is amazing what a precious pet can do and teach us! This picture (that she was replying to on my page) just reminds me of how precious our furry friends are! OHHHH AND SMART! They live in their flow all the time. It is amazing!”
