A Letter from Kate: Furry Friends

| Feb. 2009

Ever since I can remember, I’ve had animals in my life.

My first pet was a dog, and I loved her, but my sister and I really wanted a cat. Mom told us we couldn’t have a cat as long as we had a dog.

After we lost our dog, Mom then consented to let us have a cat. My sister and I each got a kitten. I’ve had cats ever since.

The cat I had growing up was my best friend. I raised him from a kitten, and I had him almost 14 years. It broke my heart when it came time to put him down.

I never thought another cat would penetrate my heart as much as he did, but I was wrong.

After not having a pet for about 12 years, I got a cat from a local shelter. She filled the void left by my other cat.
