sigh...i love hook

Carol  ·  Feb. 24, 2008

i know nothing about him except he was in a high kill shelter in saskatchewan...just this silent, frail, smoke black, one eyed, ancient, little cat with frost bitten ears who stares at me so intently while balancing on my shoulder. i don't know what his life was, i don't know how he ended up in the shelter. all i know is that when my cat pause died, i needed to give his home to someone else.

and hook accepted me as his home the very first moment that we met.

i will never forget opening the door of his crate at the airport and saying our very first hello. i said the words, he gave a squeak and it was true love at first sight.

ok so he wasn't around 8 yrs old, he was more like at least twice that age, but he was everything perfect i could ever have hoped for even tho i didn't know what that was.

i don't know why more people don't adopt the is such a two way gift. i got this most incredible creature and he got me (which he seems happy about too.)

anyway, we were just watching "my big fat greek wedding" and it was great because hook made it wonderful and i just wanted to say that..



Such a wonderful story - and so true. I never would have considered an older animal until I lost my dad and added his cat to our family. We had Puddy for 2 years (she had to be about 15 years old - at least). We went through lung cancer surgery, weight issues, and the cancer comeback with her. I wouldn't have missed it for all the world.

She was the best. We agreed that she wasn't really a cat - she was a human. It has been just over a month since we said goodbye and she is sorely missed. We have two more cats and a dog that are now seniors. Puddy gave us a new way to look at older animals.

While I wish that she was still with us I wouldn't change a thing. I can't wait until I see her again.
