My Little Shadow
I have two cats who are dear to me, but one follows me from room to room like a little dog. I guess I have babied K.C. more in the past year due to the fact she has been so sick with fevers, excessive drooling, loss of appetite, etc. Then in May, we found out she has Feline Leukemia and probably was born with this horrible disease. After coming to grips and shedding many tears, I have learn how to care for her on the good AND bad days. I guess I treat K.C. a little more special than Harley due to her special needs. Now don't get me wrong, I love Harley so much and she came into my life after the loss of my precious Muffin in 2005. Harley healed my heart in so many ways and gave me the courage to love a pet again without fear of the horrendous heartbreak of losing one. But after about a year, I could tell Harley needed a playmate. K.C. (short for Kitty Cat) was found by our neighbor on the local golf course. He brought her home, but really did not have the time for her. So K.C. started showing up at our house, looking through our windows, running into the garage to our back door just looking for attention. Then I let her come in a few times and Harley loved playing with her. I called my neighbor and he agreed (after some persuading) to let us have K.C. Little did we know how sick this precious girl would become. The vet gave up on her in September telling us she was so anemic, she could go to sleep one night and not wake up. Well, she is still going and I truly believe she thinks I am her Momma. On the good days, she follows me from room to room earning the nickname of "My Shadow". I don't want to think about what may happen one day, but rather enjoy every day I am blessed with her presence. Thank you, God, for allowing me another day with my precious K.C. aka Katie K or Katie girl.
I am very blessed and give thanks to God for all the blessings in my life. I am a wife to Jerry, mother to April & Andrew, step-mom to Lance & Misty, Cammie and Kayla and "Dee Dee" to grandson, Jerryn Hayes & granddaughter, Kelley Michelle (children of Misty & Lance). I have two adorable cats, Harley & Aubie. I love quiet, the simple things of life and true friends. I am sensitive and compassionate. One day I hope to settle down at the beach in a condo with my best friend Jerry and enjoy the lazy, carefree life.
