So, about a few months ago a cat was crying over and over, everybody was gone but me, I searched all over for it and found it under my house. The poor helpless thing looked as if it had been abused and mistreated. It was crying out but when a person would try to approach it, it would dart off. I knew it wanted love and so I went inside and got a little piece of meat and just took it outside and placed it near the entrance and sat about 25 feet away. It wandered near it, still crying out, but still very afraid to accept love, and graciously ate the nourishment I had brought it. Soon it went back to it's hiding place but her cries were silent for a bit.
Thinking about it that night I said nothing to my family, I was afraid, although with all good meanings, they would scare the poor thing. The next day the crying came back so I got some more food and brought it to her, placed it near the entrance, and again sat about 25 feet away. She came up, lapped up the nutrients and looked at me, cautiously she moved toward me, then turned and went back to her hiding place.
Feeling sorry for her, but also admiring her strength for she showed that she is strong by attempting to come toward me I could hardly sleep that night waiting for the next day. That day came, if too slowly for my taste, and again the crying. Again I took the food out and placed in our spot, but this time I brought an extra piece with me. She came out and ate, again coming toward me but this time, although she did hesitate, she came all the way. I let her come at her own pace and she enjoyed the reassurance that she was loved and a special creature. She enjoyed the treat I offered her but then something wonderful happened. She rubbed her head against me and started purring. I reach out and gave her the positive attention she was wanting. We had a moment, just me and that beautiful cat.
I have a screen door on the back of my wood shop (attached former sunroom) and it has a hole in the bottom and she comes in and out at her leisure, she knows I am there for herand she is safe with me. I enjoy that she comes and visits me and lifts my spirits fro time to time too. That is all, I just wanted to share a wonderful moment with you all, thank you for reading.
