Our Baby Jack came to us after we had lost our baby Sheena a tortoise shell, we never wanted to replace her,|
One day Jack (Black short hair) and his brother Leo (black and white) were playing around in our garden, found out he was from the house at our rear. Leo held back but Jack came up to me and rolled at my feet gazing up at me. I ignored him and moved away, he did it again and again, it was as if he was saying pick me up and give me a cuddle, I relented and did, and said there you are go home. This happened for a few weeks until one day we had renovations inside the house and the worker had left the laundry door open, he walks in and curls up in the lounge on some curtains taken down to paint the windows. They were going to be discarded. I found him there fast asleep, so I put him out when the doors were closed. He did this on a daily basis. When the work stopped he had no inside access, but would not go home to his house, I took him back many a time only to find him back at my place until late at night he just sat and meowed. I finally went to the neighbour and told her my predicament that I could not get him home and she seemed unconcerned, I said I even turned the water hose on him and he refuses to give up. She told me I could keep him because she did not like him but liked his brother!!! He knew rejection and he wanted a home, so he came to me and lived with me from the age of 9 months.So affectionate, so gentle, so adorable and the most beautiful face and eyes. He was an indoor cat and he was spoiled rotten we had no children and we are both aged. The day after my birthday and 2 weeks after I had heart surgery he finally was giving up as he was in the late stages of chronic kidney failure.We are still heart broken and miss him so much.It is over 6 months he has gone. I have his ashes that's all.But the pain never leaves.
