Odin: Meowmy, something is wrong with me! 👀
• ENGLISH VERSION IN THE COMMENTS •
Es sah doch so lecker aus. Und es war auch lecker.
So köstlich! 😽 Doch ich glaube es war einbisschen zu viel davon. 😺 Bin ich froh, dass wir keine Katzen-Polizei in der Nähe haben. 🚔 Was ist mit euch, habt ihr Gras .. äh ich meine Katzengras & frisst ihr es auch so gerne? 🌱
One year ago, my life changed enormously.
Before that I used to joke that the only kind of pets I happened to have at home were my younger siblings. However, one year ago our cat found us.
It was a quiet and warm early summer evening. Our neighbors threw a party across the street, where we spent a great deal of the day. Tired of crowds, we one by one went to sit on our porch to catch the breath and to enjoy the stillness of the warm air. That’s when we saw it.
The first glance at its direction evoked in my memory one of Neil Gaiman’s short stories, called The Price. This cat looked like a creature straight from the story.
A starved cat with battle wounds, swaying on both feet, went to our porch and lay not far away from us, watching us and staying alert. We were looking at it, surprised and amused by its appearance.
We found some food for it in the house (salmon steak and some milk) and slowly, after greedily eating, it started approaching us, staying alert. We all dreaded that its owner might come to us, searching for the cat, because, without saying it out loud, all of us already wanted to keep it.
Well, we couldn’t find the owner so next day we headed to the vet, where we found out that our cat was actually a girl (before that we were absolutely sure that it’s a boy - see how little experience we got). Since then, our cat, named after the Robber’s daughter from a children book, lives with us.
And there is no better present for the beginning of the summer.
