One blustery winter day in late January, just before taking an afternoon nap, I heard a meow coming from outside, nearby. I awoke a couple hours later to the same meows, now sounding distressful. Concerned, I looked out my window to see that this poor little cat laying in the snow, wedged between a cement block and the house next door! (Foul play, no doubt) When I rescued her she had drainage from her eye, no appetite and was burning up with fever. Fortunately, a prompt visit to the vet resulted in immediate improvement. Once fully recovered, I was on my way to take her to an adoption shelter but got no farther than two blocks away and had to turn around realizing I was already attached to this little jewel. She joined my two other cats that I already had and has been the self-appointed queen of the castle since that day thirteen years ago. Lucky for her that I heard her cries when I did, but even luckier for us as she's warmed our hearts and brought us joy and laughter all these years.
