I want to share to you about a cat I once have. I don't remember who adopted this cat, but one day I saw her inside our house. She was a kitten when I saw her, three colors , orange , black and white. She have unique eyes, it is swollen. Over all she is not cute but for me those unique kind of cat looks beautiful in my eyes. She has one problem, the end part of her intestine was exposed. We can see the end part of her intestine outside her stomach. I believe she was played and hurt when she was in the street. Do you know inspite of her condition she lived normally. She is very sweet. When someone went home she come to say hello. We named her Bogus because her eyes looks similar to Bogus , the cartoon character, I hope many of you are familiar. One time we brought her in a veterinarian clinic, the findings was is now to late for her to be cured. The exposed intestine although we put cotton to hide it is already infected with bacteria and she can not live any longer. I cried when I found it out, I was sad and full of anger because I started to love her. I wonder if we had seen her earlier, we could have saved here, but now its too late. Inspite of the bad news do you know she came to me and look into my eyes, as if she was saying that everything will be fine, I can handle the pain. What we did were to take care of her instead. To treat her as she have no illness. Eventhough she have a abnormal condition do you know she lived a longer life. We are expecting her life to be in days, but she had lives for less than 2 months. She plays with the other cats normally, you can see in her face that she was so happy. We never expected the saddest day will come. One night, she made a very strange stare at each one of us. She looked at every member of the family, even every part of the house she looked at it at she was like memorizing it. That time I have the feeling , the time is near, that she will leave us. While watching the tv, she still looks at us and then I saw her smile with a tear in the sides of her both eyes. I hugged her and I cry. Early in the morning, we found her not breathing. I cried all day because of her passing. WE mourn for her. Today is her 3 year's death anniversary. I remember the cat who have found a family in us, a cat that so sweet and loyal. She made us feel that we are important the way she give her hug, her hellos. Three years had passed since her passing, but until now her memory lives on. She is the cat that can smile inspite of pain. Instead of lying because of the hurt she is feeling, she choose to run and play, to live her life to the fullest. She greatly influenced me on how she treated her life and how she is very thankful of her blessings. I am sure wehn she said goodbye, I am too confident she said it with happiness. I love you Bogus, i hope you are happy there wherever you are! :cry:

Hi grecy, thanks for sharing here the story of Bogus. Yeah, it would be a lovely cat with the three beautiful colors as well as the cartoon eyes, if it’s still healthy. I feel so sorry to see its exposing intestine. I could imagine how painful it was when having the hurt while playing in the street. I think the relation between Bogus and you was really close and intimate during those days. There were lots of sweet and unforgettable remembrances when getting together. This is why you still couldn’t forget it though it had left for three years long. I believe Bogus would feel happy to see you still missing it from somewhere around. I also couldn’t forget the first pet bird I had kept during my childhood. I don’t keep any pet bird anymore since then I’m afraid that I would come across the same and sad situation again. Take care and happy posting
