Boo Boo Kitty found us. In May of 2002, my husband was mowing the yard. I was cooking supper when he
came in the house. He told us that he heard a kitten under our house. I thought he was lying. I turned the
stove off and went outside and crawled under the house. Yes, sure enough there was a skinny but beautiful little kitten.
She wouldn't come to Tony or Caitlyn.
I have lived with animals all of my life, so I picked up some of the sounds that they make. I can sound just like
a mama cat. So, I started meowing, and the little kitty came to me purring.
Needless to say, the kitten became my cat and follows me everywhere in the house. When I am on the computer, she
is either in my lap, on the computer desk, or on the back of my chair.
When she is ready for bed, she gets between me and the monitor or keyboard purring. I know she is saying, "Don't
you think it is time for bed? Like right now! Please!'
I wrote a children's book about Boo Boo Kitty. My kids at school love to read the book. They laugh at the
things that Boo Boo and my other animals do.
Boo left us in February 2010. She held on fighting even in the end. I had to tell her
to let go. She died in my arms and on my bed; the exact place that she always love to be. It broke my heart.
I lost my best friend. I miss her so much. I love her so.
