An Abandoned Cat's Plea

User Rating: / 0

I remember when you loved me, when you held me in your arms and snuggled me.
I remember when you stroked me and kissed me and told me how handsome I was.
I remember how you used to brush my coat and wipe me down with a soft cloth.
I remember sleeping next to you in a big bed, lying on your pillow beside your sweet smelling hair.  

I remember the toys you bought me, how you played with me. Oh! What joyful fun!
I remember how every morning I would purr and gently touch your cheek with my paw to awaken you.
I remember your sweet smile, and how you would sing out "good morning, my precious", upon opening your eyes.

I remember the delicious food you used to give me, how there was always plenty to eat.  

I remember how very much I loved you, adored you, worshiped you! Do you remember me?  
I remember when you brought the man home and introduced him to me.
I remember that you said he was your husband; that you loved him and that he would love me, too.
I remember the man did not smell like a cat lover, but if you loved him, then I would try to love him too.

I remember that the man was loud and he would frighten me with his hard footsteps.  
I remember that the man was not cruel to me, but indifferent to me as I begged him to stroke me.
I remember when the man said cats do not belong in the bedroom; then I was no longer allowed.  
I remember how I missed awakening you every morning. Do you remember me?  

I remember when you came home one day with a sweet smelling bundle in your arms.
I remember you held it gently, snuggled it closely and told me it was your baby and that you loved it.
I remember thinking that if you loved it, I would love it, too.
I remember being curious about it and sniffing it often, for it smelled like you, but it was small like me.  

I remember the man being fearful as I sniffed the baby. The man said that I would hurt the baby.
I remember being put outside, where I had never been before, and it scared me so badly!
I remember sitting on the porch, crying and begging you to let me back inside.
I remember that you never came to the door to let me in.    

I remember that night when the other cats came, they watched from the darkness and hissed at me.
I remember that I was so afraid they would hurt me; I had no claws and could not defend myself!
I remember huddling miserably against the door at night; afraid, and lonely.
I remember the man saying that I kept him awake at nights with my cries, so I had to go away.  

I remember you putting me into a box, and you would not even meet my eyes. Do you remember me?
I remember being tossed from the moving car, box and all; how much it hurt hitting the hard ground.
I remember escaping from the box and having no idea at all as to where I was; where you were.
I remember waiting there, for days, hoping you would come and save me.

I remember being hungry, thirsty, lost, alone, and afraid.  
I remember looking for food, being so hungry, rummaging in garbage cans for something to eat.
I remember other cats chasing me, scratching me, and biting me because I was in their territory.
I remember trying to find you; scent you on the breeze.

I could not sense you anywhere. I remember running and looking for you; running until my paws bled.
I remember how my glossy coat became matted and dull; my once robust body, gaunt from hunger.
I remember the monster with the very bright eyes as it swooped down upon me in the road.
I remember the pain, horrible pain and the feel of my blood as it ran from my mouth.

I remember not being able to move; my legs did not work anymore.  
I remember needing you more than I had ever needed you before in my life. And yet you did not come.
I remember how very much I loved you as I lay there dying alone, afraid, and in terrible pain.
Do you remember me?
