How We Met

She showed up on my front porch one spring day after I got home from work, 5 months after my first cat, Jewel, died. I live in a rural area & can only assume that she was dropped off near my house. I had no intention of getting another cat, but I got adopted that day. She walked thru the house alongside me & ran into furniture because she was so busy looking up at me, she wasn't watching where she was going! I still remember when she sat down on my kitchen floor, looked up at me & I was hers! She was so skinny! She had apparently been living on bird seed from someone's feeder & her little tummy was in bad shape. It took months to get her back to normal. She finally gained some healthy weight after she was spayed. I guestimated her age to be 5 to 6 months & set her birthday for the day Jewel died, December 23, 2004. She got her name from a contestant on the Amazing Race that I was watching at the time; I heard the name & knew it was for her. She’s the most loveable, snuggling cat I’ve ever known. I never knew I needed her until she found me. She’s a gift from God!

Spring into motion
"This spring as it comes bursts up
in bonfires green,
Wild puffing of emerald trees,
and flame-filled bushes,
Thorn-blossom lifting in wreaths
of smoke between
Where the wood fumes up
and the watery, flickering rushes.
I am amazed at this spring,
this conflagration
Of green fires lit on the soil
of the earth, this blaze
Of growing, & sparks that puff in wild gyration,
Faces of people streaming across my gaze."
-D. H. Lawrence, The Enkindled Spring
