At my previous address, I had a little tabby cat come to visit me every day. She belonged to people who lived around the corner. Each morning when they went to work, I would hear their garage door open & not long after that she would jump up onto my fence and come running to my kitchen door. She knew she'd get a little treat. If I didn't open the door quickly enough, she'd stand up against the seat near the window and miaow her little heart out. She kept me company during the day in my garden for 8 years. Her "people" knew she'd be with me, and didn't mind. They called me her surrogate mom. Moving house was a blessing because my new house is so much better (no noisy neighbours and no busy roads), but of course I couldn't take the cat with me. I still miss her terribly every day, wonder how she is (if she's still alive. She would be about 12 now, but already had problems with her sinuses and lungs when I knew her). I tried contacting her owners, but they never replied. :'( My avatar looks very much like her. All my photo's of her are on another harddisk, but I'll place some of them here as soon as I've transferred them to my laptop.
