Woman wrote touching letter to her cat's future family before she died
Cats are part of the family, and as a part of your family, you worry about their future if/when you're not around.
This woman knew she didn't have much time left, so she wrote a letter to her fur friend's future family. It really is a beautiful.
Thank you for adopting my friend, Susie. She was one of three cats in a litter. November 15, 2010 is her approximate birthdate. She moved in with me on December 1, 2010.
Until I felt sure she knew where her new home was, I kept her in the house. After she was left out, she disappeared for four days. I thought I would never see her again. On the fourth night we had an unusually loud thunderstorm. There was no rain, just noise. That morning when I went out to call her, I didn’t expect to see her but she came running. She came in the house with me and has not been willing to go out again unless I go with her. She became an indoor cat.
Susie is afraid of everyone and everything. It took her six to eight months to realize I am her friend.
I have tried for a long time to get her to go outside. She won’t do it unless I go with her. Perhaps if I could go for walks with her she would get used to going outside but I am too unstable to leave my front porch. She will go on the porch as long as I go with her. The best she will do is walk along the garden next to my front porch. I believe she would follow me if I could go for a walk.
It would be nice if she would make friends with our dog. They get along together but Susie keeps some distance away from the dog. I never worry about them when I leave them in the house together.
Susie is unusual but I enjoy her company. She is a good snuggler but she likes to be the boss. She enjoys being petted. She spends much of her time on my bed but always seems to know where I am.
I hope you enjoy Susie as much as I have."
At first, Susie had a hard time when she first came to the shelter. She was very scared and hid from the shelter staff.
According to Katherine Zenzano, the shelter’s community outreach coordinator, Susie’s confidence level was at “an all-time low” when they took her in. “She’s a sensitive girl and she lost the most important person to her,” said Zenzano. “She needs another gentle soul to rescue her.”
They plan to give whoever adopts Susie the kind letter written from her previous owner.
The shelter staff are providing Susie with plenty of attention and love, and it does seem like she's coming around.
“She is certainly learning to trust again,” said Zenzano of Susie. Susie enjoys being pet like the letter states.
We hope that whoever adopts Susie, that they show the same love and compassion as her previous owner. I believe all cats go to heaven, and that these two will be reunited again in the end. :)
