On a September evening after coming home from food shopping, while we were unpacking our bags we heard a noise, an animal. We weren't sure if the animal was hurt, stuck, or what it was. We thought the neighbors dog had gotten stuck somewhere. My honey and I looked all around trying to find the animal. We were puzzled, then we saw a big white cat sitting on the neighbors wall. I know all the cats in the neighborhood so I knew he was a stray. He seemed friendly. We brought him out food to eat on the porch, which he quickly gobbled down.
He looked to be a young cat, thin, white, long haired.He was dirty and had grease all over his back. He was very friendly. We didn't know what to do with him. My Hubby looked at me with questioning eyes... We had two cats and a dog. I said, "if he gets along with the dog!". With that, we opened the door and let him in. He walked right up to our dog Chessie and rubbed on his head. I don't know who was more suprised us or the dog.
After we cleaned him up and gave him more food he seemed so happy. Later Hubby and I were watching a movie. I liked laying on the floor to watch movies. He came right over to me, curled up on my chest and went to sleep. Hubby said "guess he has a home!"
We took him to the vet for a check up. She said he was one or two years old and in good health. At the time Haley's Comet was in the night sky so we called him Comet. He was always a good boy, a little crazy for food. Of all things, he love the dark green lettuce leaves which he begged for. He loved our son Christopher and stuck by him all the time.
Comet lived a long life. We had him 18 years. He went to rainbow bridge on May 11, 2011. He is burried in our yarden next to Chessie~
