Hello, everyone! I hope you are having a good day. I want to introduce you to a new furiend of mine. Smokey’s story started off sadly, but it has a happy ending.
Poor Smokey was abandoned by his first humans, and he had to find a place to live. Being resilient, just like all of us cats are, he found an old house for shelter. It was dirty, smelly, damp, and had lots of nasty things in it. But at least it kept Smokey out of the rain. He was able to get in and out of the place by going through one of many broken windows.
One night, Smokey was going through the neighborhood exploring, and he found a nice, warm, comfortable seat. It was on the porch of the humans who would take Smokey in. Since Smokey is a black cat, he thought he would blend in and nobody would see him. Well, one of his humans did, and turned on the light and said hello to Smokey. At the time, Smokey didn’t like humans too much, so he ran away.
Night after night, Smokey would come back to visit and his humans would feed him and give him water. Smokey started to go into the house, and spend time with his humans. One day he went in, and his humans wouldn’t let him out. And in the morning, they let Smokey out, but with a catch. He went into a box and then into a car. This diabetic cat hates those rides. Smokey did, too.
Smokey went to the SPCA to make sure he wasn’t some other human’s cat, and after after they found he had no microchip, he was given to his current humans. That was nice, but then Smokey had to deal with another shock, and it’s one that this diabetic cat can sympathize with. His humans moved.
It was a nice place, with a pond, and a balcony that overlooks it. But Smokey wasn’t sure about this place. Cats always need a little time to get used to their surroundings. It took me a while, and it did Smokey.
But Smokey is very happy now. He’s in a place where his humans love him and will never abandon him. And he loves to play with them and just like me, he occasionally play bites. But his humans don’t mind.
Smokey is another case of a cat that many humans would ignore became a loving and friendly creature after being shown love. My human tells me that since I am a diabetic cat, I shouldn’t get my heart beating too fast. I can’t help it. His happy story makes my little feline heart beat quickly.
