The Story of Miracle
Last summer, our children got to witness firsthand the rescue of a little black miracle kitten. Here is the story in the words of my daughter. Read the full story of our Kitten Rescue here.
My first Cat
I remember the first time I fell in love with a cat. When I was about 6 years old, my Mom, my sister and I were pushing our baby brother in a stroller on a long walk through the country. We heard a horrible screaming noise off to the side of the road. My Mom carefully checked it out and discovered an ugly scrawny cat that had been tied up in a burlap sack and thrown to the side of the road. That scrawny ugly calico cat ended up following us all the way to our destination. When we begged and begged to take the cat home, my Dad somehow managed to get it home where we fed it and helped it get fat and sassy.
That very night, a heavy frost came and would have killed that scrawny, calico cat had we not rescued it and given it hope. Guess what we named that cat? Hope! Hope lived with us for almost 20 years as a part of the family.
A friend of mine shared this picture of their cat, Turbo. Turbo is always into something so they decided to start his own Facebook Page. Follow the adventures of Turbo on Facebook.
