They steal your heart..


As I sit here and reflect upon the past year, the highs and lows, I am reminded by a gentle paw on my arm that my cat, Timmy, has been there for each moment.  As a matter of fact, Timmy has been my very best for the past 14 years.

Although I knew he wouldn’t live forever, as his health is failing, I can’t help but wish it was possible.

timmy the cat I am the luckiest person to have the love and trust of this sweet baby boy.  He often would wink at me and would ALWAYS follow me around the house.

The last few weeks, Timmy has been pretty sick so the harsh reality has set in that I will lose him soon.

He completely stole my heart when I saw him in the cage with his huge green eyes.  As I picked him up it felt as if he was hugging me back.  My heart melted and I rescued him.  I can’t even begin to tell you how many times I actually believe it was the other way around – Timmy rescued me!

He was able to enjoy the company of a new brother, Bob Scratchit, this year but also quickly displayed his annoyance with him as well.

These two boys have played and played and played and I have been able to document quite a bit of it and shared on their YouTube page for the world to enjoy.

I am so thankful to have been rescued by the love of my life and to have had the opportunity to love him right back.

They steal our hearts and then they break them…
