As a lot of you know, a little over two weeks ago, my tabby kitty McCartney passed away due to an enlarged heart at the young age of six. I've never been more devastated about anything in my whole life. I knew I would get a kitten again, perhaps in several months, but was not quite ready for one yet. But, something happened beyond my control. This past Friday, exactly two weeks after McCartney's passing, my mom found a one month old kitten in the road, on a dangerous highway. She had to rescue him.
She brought the kitten home and we have been taking care of him. At first I wasn't sure if I should keep him or take him to a rescue place. But I've decided that I've fallen in love with him and want to keep him. He is extremely attached to me as well. Do you think it's too soon? I did not plan on this happening so early, and I am not looking at this as replacing McCartney. I feel like God and McCartney, if he's in Heaven, dropped him into my life. So that a new life had a chance at being saved and loved, just like McCartney was. Perhaps he and God know this? And sent the little kitty my way? Knowing that he would cheer me up and let me feel good about saving someone else?
I still feel bad about it happening so early, even though I feel like there has been a divine intervention. I do not want my mind to wander away from McCartney. To me, McCartney is beyond compare, and I'm scared this will unwillingly change. I will try not to let it. But I also feel bad for the kitten because I don't love him as much as I loved McCartney. Too many thoughts and emotions going on at once. Are there any opinions on this? Has anybody else ever felt this way?
Seeing the kitten for the first time also made me teary eyed. When he first saw me, he meowed loud and actually came up towards me, with a scared face looking like he wanted to be saved. And every now and then, hanging out with him has made me teary eyed too. I am just full of emotion, because of all that has happened with McCartney and now this somehow happening.
The kitty is gray, with a white bib, mouth, stomach, and paws. His eyes are the color of his fur, with a hint of green. And a perfect little face. I will post a picture soon.
I never dreamed I would be posting something like this so soon.
~I love you eternally, McCartney boy~
