Just one little Siamese kitten to give me some solace in the face of losing Winnie.*violins playing* Winnie who I had for 12 years and had to put to sleep on the morning Avery was baptized. Winnie who I loved and who brought me great companionship and laughter for so many years.
Siamese are amazing. I had a seal point as a child. A gift from my mother who I promptly named Daphne after the Scooby Doo Daphne. Oh Daphne.. I still cry about seeing her get hit by a car. She was a wonderful cat. One I thought never to replace.
But then came Winnie.. another Siamese. My mother gave her to me also. She was about 3 when she came to live with me. What a personality she had. She was smart, exasperating and funny. She died of old age after her kidneys failed. I had to take her to be put to sleep. She was in such pain. Edward and I had her sleep in the bed with us the last evening of her life. She was so full of life. Her leaving left a huge whole in my heart. Very similar to when Daphne died.
I stumbled on a part Siamese cat at the humane society and promptly adopted her. We named her Sophie.. she is quite pretty but aloof. I have never had the relationship with her that I had with Daphne and Winnie.
And now my mother has rescued a 6 month old seal point with seven toes... she will send her to me on a flight from Boston but I have been told that cats are expensive and that we can not afford her. But what if she is THE cat. Siamese are expensive. This one is free. I will never have the money to go out and buy a Siamese no matter how badly I want one.
I can trade my new digital camera that I was going to get for the kitten I have been told.
I feel Scrooged. Am I being a big sad baby? Are cats expensive? I have had too many too count growing up and no one ever told my they could break the bank. Maybe I am economically ignorant of the whole cat money sapping theorem. Anybody got a thought?
