I may speak of her often. Never have I known a more personable, devoted, loving, adorable, beautiful, smart and loving creature!
I was blessed with Bridget 3 years ago. There on the bulletin board at the grocery story was a large poster with her picture, asking for someone to adopt her, as her people were moving and couldnot take her with them. I phoned, they brought her to me and I was in love! I sat and held her while her owner went back to the house to get her food, toys, etc for her.
She's been stuck like Velcro to me ever since. She sleeps beside my head, on a satin pillow case with a small littlesoft pillow inside, for her little head.
Of course she is pampered and spoiled! But she gives back so much. Like when she reaches over with her "arm" and touches my cheek, or my arm, just to say "I love you mommy".
They had named her "Cat". That was not going to do. My previous cat, a white, longhaired Angora was named Sylvester, after my Great grandfather who came from Ireland. His wife was Bridget. I lost Sylvester at the age of 15, a few months before I met Bridget. It was only fitting that she should be named Bridget. Surely Sylvester sent her to me, knowing how lonely I was and how I missed him.
Merry Christmas Everyone, and Best of wishes for an even better New Year!!
