Hello. My name is David, I'm 17 and I've always had a special place in my heart for animals. Right now I'm in pain. My heart cries out for answers but there's none to be found.
I had a cat her name is Miss Kitty. I loved Miss Kitty with all my heart. She had a very special way of showing her love for me. She would jump up onto a table and meow. I'd walk over to her and she'd stand up on her back legs and put her front paws on my chest and then lay her head down on my chest and happily purr letting me know how much she loved me. But now Miss Kitty is gone. She's been gone for over a week, and I have no idea where she's at or what's happened to her.
There's a small "kitty door" where so could come and go as she pleased. She would often go outside at night and play with my next door neighbors cat. But she would always return early in the morning and I'd wake up and see her sleeping next to me or in the chair near my computer. She's never been gone this long before.
My mind is spinning with thoughts that something terrible has happened to her.
I've talked with the neighbors and they haven't seen her.
Here's a brief background on Miss Kitty. Back in January 2009 a friend found a tiny little kitten wandering the streets lonely and hungry. He picked her up and he brought her to my house. He gave the tiny kitten to me and I named her Miss Kitty. She's been with me ever since then. But now she's gone and my heart is broken.
Here's 2 scenarios that might explain what happened to her.
(1) Where I live there's a lot of stray dogs that roam the neighborhood at night searching for food. I don't live in the U.S. and where I do live there's very little animal control. There's only one shelter and it's only purpose is to kill the dogs that are picked up wandering the streets. And they don't pick up cats. There's very few cats where I live at. Dogs are the preferred pets. Miss Kitty might have fallen victim to the stray dogs. I have 5 dogs and she's grown up around dogs. My dogs and Miss Kitty always played together, and so she didn't know there are dogs that would harm her.
(2) I noticed that recently Miss Kitty was loosing weight and her fur was constantly wet. But her appetite was strong. I've heard that when a pet isn't feeling well, they usually stop eating. I fed Miss Kitty twice a day and she always ate all of her food without exception. And so I thought that she must be doing ok. A few days ago someone told me that pets have ways of masking pain and disease, and they won't show that they're suffering until they finally go off to hide and die. If this is what has happened to Miss Kitty I will never forgive myself.
The hardest part for me is not knowing for sure what's happened to her.
And without knowing where she's at or what's happened to her, there can never be closure, and that's what hurts the most.
My prayers are that God will show me where Miss Kitty is at, or bring her back to me.
Thank you for reading this and I appreciate your thoughts and comments.
I attached 2 pics. The first pic is Miss Kitty, and the second pic is me with Daisy, one of my dogs.
Peace be with you.
