Marisa D Probable ADC
Well I'll start by saying my friend was an animal lover and often took care of my cats when I was out of town. We would often walk dogs together. As she was planning her after death wishes, she requested people donate to an animal charity of choice. I found this out, AFTER my experience, in her obits.
I was sad at home, dealing with the news of my friend's death. My kitty was meowing and chirping out of my front window. I checked to see what she was looking at, and it was another orange cat. I thought it was coincidental since I lost a kitty in January and said my next cat was going to be a big loving orange male. I said I would only pay attention to another kitty if it came to me. Well there he was.
I went outside and it came to me, rubbed on me, wanted affection-no food when I offered. It rolled around, followed me to the door, and wanted to come in the house. Then I had to leave to take care of my boyfriend's dog, and it tried to get in my car. I was spooked. I walked down the street and it followed me. I had never seen this cat before, and I'm always in the neighborhood running. It was not neutered! No collar! It was from the streets??!
I went to my boyfriends house to take care of his dog. I called him to update him and told him about the news and the overly friendly cat....the lights started flickering. When I went back home, it was waiting for me on my deck. I went to bed creeped out.
The next morning it was on my deck. It watched me make coffee, and breakfast from my sliding glass doors. It stood there...watching. I took pictures of it.
My other cats were fairly undisturbed by it. I left for work and pet it. It was the most loving and outgoing cat ever!! I pet it and told it to go, nicely. I said I can't take care of another kitty because I have a 19 year old cat. It crossed the street, looked back at me and was gone. I hadn't seen it since. It has been several days.
My friend knew I loved cats and would always buy cat trinkets for me. She was a loving but persistent redhead with green eyes. Was she saying goodbye?? Did her spirit send the kitty as a gift? I don't know...
