I adopted Stormy (or,rather, she adopted me) in August of 2007. I was going through a bit of a rough stretch in life, and I had figure a pet would be a good way to help me deal with some of the stress. I had really wanted a kitten, but when I got to the Humane Society, they were encouraging me to look at the slightly older cats. Stormy was up in her cage, and whenever my friend and I would open the door to try and get her to come out, she would shrink back against the back wall. But if we backed off and closed the door, she was immediately pawing at it and meowing, as if to say, "I'm sorry I'm scared...I really wanna play...please?"|
Long story short, she came home with me that day. And for the next 10.5 years, we were rarely apart from each other.
I remember how cool it was to come home, call out, "Where's Daddy's Little Girl?", and she would immediately purr and come running happily around the corner from the bedroom.
We spent many an evening snuggled on the couch watching tv together.
Stormy, I miss you so much, I'm looking forward to the day I see you again at Rainbow Bridge, baby girl. I can't wait. Never forget me, just as I will never forget you. I hope you'll look down on me sometimes and smile and remember all of the wonderful times we shared.
All my love, Stormy girl.
