My Orange Kitty Has Arrived!
I saw the movie The Secret when it first came out and found it interesting enough to give the law of attraction a try. One thing I really wanted was a little orange female cat with white paws. That’s easy enough to say, but orange is a male dominant trait in cats, let alone one with white paws. I continued to look online for about a year, and I found her! I went to the shelter and tried to coax her to me several times but she wanted nothing to do with me. At the same time though, a little white fluff ball came over to me and put herself down in my lap. Not once, but three times. As my friend pointed out, as much as I wanted the orange cat, the white one wanted me, and who was I to argue with what a cat wants? So Miss Snow came home with me and my dream of an orange kitty got set aside.
I love Miss Snow, she’s the best lap cat ever and I don’t regret getting her for one second, but now, eight years later I am retired and was thinking of a companion cat for the both of us. My orange kitty has always been in the back of my mind. I have used my computer passwords as the name I wanted for her and have had a picture of her on my fridge, all of these years. I again checked online continuously but nothing. Then I happened to mention this to my neighbor and she told me about a local stray. It seems a person on the block didn’t want a six month old kitten so they just threw the kitten outside and let it fend for itself. Very cruel. Sure enough though, it was a little orange female with white paws. Several neighbors were able to help me catch her as she was very skittish, but now, well, she’s home! It took about eight years for her to come into my life, but if she hadn’t have waited I would have never been blessed with Miss Snow. Now I have the two best cats in the world at exactly the right time. The law of attraction worked. Maybe not in the time I would have liked, but in the time that was exactly right.
