scruffy
Hello Bridge Friends, it's me David again, here one last time to say a final goodbye to Miss Kitty. Today is Wednesday and one month ago today is the last time I saw Miss Kitty. I fed her at around 8:30pm Wednesday night. And as usual she stood up on her back legs and put her front paws on my chest, she laid her head down on my chest and purred. I had no idea that this would be the last time I would see Miss Kitty. The following morning I woke up to get ready for school, and Miss Kitty was nowhere around. If you've read my previous posts you already know that I knew she was sick. But I had no idea that she was gravely ill.
Her appetite was strong and she fooled me into thinking that she would get better over time. What a cruel trick nature pulled on me! The lesson I learned is this . . . . If in the future I see that one of my pets is sick, I'm not going to let a strong appetite fool me into thinking that everything is ok. Because of my ignorance of just how sickly ill Miss Kitty really was, she paid the price with her life. I truly pray that she forgives me for not doing more to help her. 

A few days ago I came home from school and 3 of my neighbor girls was sitting on the front porch of my house. They had a box, and in the box was a tiny kitten. The girls know how much I love animals and they were very happy to see that I warmly received the little kitten into my home.
I named the kitten, Puma. 

Puma is very sweet, but she can never replace Miss Kitty. Miss Kitty has a special place within my heart for only her and no one else. 

Here's a pic of me and Puma: 



Good bye,
David
Miss Kitty's friend forever

David,

What a beautiful picture of you and Puma!  Miss Kitty would be so proud of you for taking this little one into your home and into your heart. I would like to think that Miss Kitty had a paw in your getting this new little baby. She is so cute!

As you know, animals try to hide their illness as an instinctual form of protecting themselves.  Many of us didn't notice how sick are babies were at first. 

Congratulations.

Karen

David,
Thank you for letting us know you are ok. If anyone reading here is new, please go back and read David's previous threads.   He is a most unusual and intellingent young man with extraordinary insight and understanding for his age! 
That was very thoughtful of your neighbors to bring you that precious kitten.  Puma can never replace Miss Kitty, but I hope you grow to love her and I hope she brings you many smiles.   
I gather this is your last time here so I want to say goodbye.  You have brought so much and written so many thought-provoking words here and we will miss you!  I'm sure you have a wonderful future ahead of you.  You have a very good heart.  Don't ever lose that!
