I like to belive that everyone has their own personal guardian Angel. But im one of the lucky few who is able to touch and talk to mine everyday. Angels are alot of differant shapes,sizes and colors mine just happens to be Kitty shaped. When i was 7 years old my mom told me we were moving and that i could not bring my beloved cat penny with us she was older and would not be able to make the 900 mile trip. i was very sad but she swore to me that after we got settled in i would be able to get another kitten of my chooseing. when we moved it was in a hurry we had no money and could only take one suite case each with us we stayed with freinds untill we could find a place of our own in Upper MI. Everynight i prayed God for a kitten i would pray for a female kitten i wanted her to be orange and i was going to name her Ginger. Almost a year went by before we moved into a wonderful house though we had nothing but what we were able to bring with us in suite cases, no furniture,no dishes,no blankets or beds and mom didnt yet have a job but it was very exciteing like camping out in our own house i was 8 then. slowly we accquired furniture,dishes,things like that even people from the neighbor hood helped us out by giving us pillows and blankets one person even gave us an entire box of new tooth brushes and playing cards a total of 62 decks! becuase of how busy we were my mom didnt have the time for us to go looking for a kitten but i was still praying for her my little orange kitten named ginger. It was a few weeks living in the hosue when i started noticeing a heavily pregant kitty cat comeing into our yard i started feeding her and letting her into our house to be petter she was jsut a plain orange tabby but very sweet i adored her but she would never stay but for an hour to eat and be petted then cry to be let out. i decided i wanted one of her kittens so me and my mom went out searching for her owners ad it wasnt long before we found them they told us momma cats name was haily becuase she was born the night of hailys commet went over and the owner promised me a kitten from the litter. seemed like i waited forever and one day she came around with a saggy tummy they had been born! we went to talk to the owners who sadly informed us that they could not find the kittens she had had them outside. i went home dissapointed i quit praying and quit thinking about owning a kitten. haily continued comeing over to eat and be petted and when seh was done i would walk with her back to her own house since it was a block away and i feared she would get hit by a car or attacked by the neighbors dogs. one day she ran up ahead of me but i continued to walk when i got closer to ehr i seen a little orange kitten run up to her to rub against her i watched a few seconds then tried to appraoch but the kitten ran and hide under a car so i ran home and told my mom we went to the owners and told them that i would really like the little orange kitten and seh told me she would try captureing it for me. about a week later i got my little orange kitten who was a female the only female from the litter of coarse i named her Ginger! i was 9 when i finally got her. and within a few more weeks haily dropped off her last kitten at our house gingers brother who was the shyest cat ever she brought him onto our enclosed porch we always left open for her with food but for somereason the door had shut on its own trapping her kitten on our porch we named him buddy he was little and grey. Ginger has always been my cat and only my cat never alloweing anyone but me to really pet or touch her. when i would leave she would wander our house searching for me and still does. while im gone to my bf hosue she will not leave my bed except to eat and go potty. whenever me and any one else gets into an arguement and yell she will come to my defense and begin "yelling" at them if we dont stop she will attack them. when she hears people pull into our drive way she growls if people are too close to our house she growls. ive always been terrably afraid of thunder and lightening so when we woudl have stroms she always stays with me while at night during storms she will lie in bed wide awake as though she is watching out for me if i fall asleep and awake i always find her awake so long as the storm is going on out side. If i cry or seem upset she always comes to me to jsut be with me and always makes me feel better when she rubs against my face. whenever we have dogs in the house if Ginger hears me yelling at them she imediatly comes in to also "yell" at the dog and make it do what i say. once i dealt with a dog who had aggression the dog growling at me and trying to bite me ginger ran to it and attacked it shocking the dog out of its aggressive state. Ive been suffering from depression and Bi-polar disorder since i was very young the first time i tried cutting my wrists i was in my bedroom Ginger wouldnot stop crying and frantically rubbing against me she refused to let me alone untill i put the blade down then she came to rub against me. this is not the first time she has stopped me from trying this and i Lover her for it. last year itook a bunch of pills and got drunk my mom thru me into the shower and although i was talking and alert Ginger actually tried climbing into the shower to be with me and would NOT elave my side for a second and ever since that day she will not allow me to go into the bathroom without her when i shower she sits on the toilet seat and watches me if im on the toilet she climbs into my lap to be petted. she is 13 years old now and slowing down she sleeps most of the day away but still comes to me to be petted and still stays awake thru the night during storms to watch me,still yells at the dogs when they dont mind me still refuses to allow anyone else in the household who have always lived here with her to pet her. this year she had a close call and had to have surgery that nearly killed her. i cant stop thinking more and more about her passing on and when that will be lord knows ill be devistated by loseing her we really grew up together becuase of that i try everyday to make her happy in some little way i always use the blanket she likes most as the one on top and make the bed every mornin for her, i try to give them extra treats, i always keep the couch in my room cleared for them everymorning no matter how bad i have to use the bathroom i make sure to give all of my kittes some morning cuddles before anything else. i always tell ehr i love her atleast 12 times a day becuase she knows what it means becuase whenever i say it she begins to pur i can say "i think your cute" and seh wont purr i can say "i miss you" she wont purr not untill i say "i love you" will she purr. shes always amazing me and i thank God everyday for giveing her too me.
