Back To Work

I get to return to work today. Finally!
Here I am, doing my morning ablutions, getting ready for work.
I've missed my Jaz and my store.  And my adoring public.
Not The Mama seems sad today,
so send him some hugs, okay?
Your shop kitty in-training,
Little Isis

  8. Awww, it must be sad to let Percy go, but be happy that he has a loving "forever home."

    And glad to see you're back at work. You're a great shop-cat in training :)

  9. It was very very difficult to let Percy go to his forever home. And his resemblance to Ubee made it harder still.
    I remember when I had to let The Mites, Momma Dinah, Momma Tortie and Company go.
    A couple of friends sent this poem to make me feel better:

    There I sat, alone and afraid,
    You got a call and came right to my aid.
    You bundled me up with blankets and love.
    And, when I needed it most, you gave me a hug.
    I learned that the world was not all that scary and cold.
    That sometimes there is someone to have and to hold.
    You taught me what love is, you helped me to mend.
    You loved me and healed me and became my first friend.
    And just when I thought you'd done all you do,
    There came along not one new lesson, but two.
    First you said, "Sweetheart, you're ready to go.
    I've done all I can, and you've learned all I know.
    "Then you bundled me up with a blanket and kiss.
    Along came a new family, they even have kids!
    They took me to their home, forever to stay.
    At first I thought you sent me away.
    Then that second lesson became perfectly clear.
    No matter how far, you will always be near.
    And so, Foster Not The Mama, you know I've moved on.
    I have a new home, with toys and a lawn.
    But I'll never forget what I learned that first day.
    You never really give your fosters away.
    You gave me these thoughts to remember you by.
    We may never meet again, and now I know why.
    You'll remember I lived with you for a time.
    I may not be yours, but you'll always be mine.

    Of course, every time I read this poem, I am overwhelmed with memories of the time.
    It is good to know that the other cats did go on to good homes. Still, I miss them everyday!
    Love and hugs,
    ML
