You came into my life when I met your father. You were already 5 years old and didn't really trust or love anyone other then your Dad! When I first saw you it was only a flash and I thought how strange you looked! Your sleek black coat with your white chest, your white toes and white moustaouche! You didn't have a tail though and I'd never seen a cat with no tail! and when you ran you ran like a rabbit! I couldn't wait for you too love me. Couldn't wait to give you the biggest cuddle but you wouldn't have it! You hid from me my whole visit! Then it was time for you to make the move from Northern NSW to Melbourne over 2,000km. You did this with our Dad sitting on the passanger seat of the removal truck! Once in Melbourne you met my little girl and she loved you from the world go! She'd chase you around the house barking wanting to play, you didn't want too though you weren't used to dogs! And you had always lost your little friends as soon as you began to love them. Unfortunately it was too happen again. Ellie died 3 weeks after you moved down and again you were without a friend! Slowly though you were beginning to trust me! You comforted me through my grieving for my little Angel. You would sit by me, just being there. Just letting me know you cared.
You then thought it would be good to push me to see how much I would take before I would leave you like everyone else had! When I'd get up of a nighttime to go to the toilet you would stalk me and pounce! You would either bite or attach yourself to my hip. I wasn't afraid of you though and would just reach around and grab you, cuddle you and kiss you until you had calmed down. The games slowly changed to me chasing you around the house then you turning around too chase me. I knew in my heart you needed a friend of your own kind so made the decision to find one for you that would be with you for the rest of your life!
So you Dad and I went to the Cat Protection Society in Melbourne on the quest to find you true love! I knew that day that we would come home with either a rough tomcat or someone to be your forever friend!
We spent a long time looking. I feel in love with a big Ginger Tom. Then your Dad calls out to me that he had seen a beautiful little white cat. She's a Manx he says just like BearBear!. It didn't take us long to decide on her. She was guttsy and a blonde! Puurfect! Not only was she a tough little blyter but she was also a Manx how could we leave her in a pen?
Bear now you not only have your mate for life but we've managed to adopt a whole Pride! for you!
You have mellowed into loving, smoochy, fun loving, adorable Manx! You love me now as much as you have ever loved your Dad. You now find it hard to choose who it is you want too spend your time with and I feel very privilledged. You are a Cat in a Million my little Man.
