Today I write about a cat. Not just any cat, but one that thought he was human..
We found Squeaks in the barn when CaraRose was nine. Never having a cat, I wasn't sure what to do..We fed him formula with an eye dropper, since he was so small..he would snuggle in my bathrobe as I had coffee in the morning..I had to keep telling Cara to stop squeezing him, for fear she would kill him..Did you ever see that cartoon where the little girls squeezed her cat, well, that was CaraRose. As time went on and Cara went to college, Squeaks stayed on with us..Then Cara got married and ole Squeaks went with her. Squeaky is now 18 and quite sick, so now the hard part comes...We will go to Cara/Jims and my husband will go with Jim to have him put down..then bring him home for his final resting place..Some people may say it is "only" an animal, but he was more than that to us..he was family..now the positive side of this story...Squeaks bought so much happiness, laughter and love..we will always be thankful for the gift we found in the barn..
Till next time, keep looking up.
