She Saved My Life
I love you daddy.
Recently I have been in a long period of depression, and I'm diabetic. Recently separated, lost my job, and had to move to a new state. Sabrina my Maine Coon went with me. Just the two of us have begun a new life in Minnesota.
During one particularly lonely depressed evening, upon reflection where I am, at the bottom. I was ready to call it quits, and give up my life. At that moment, Sabrina, took her paw and touched my face, as I was laying in bed. I looked at her, and our eyes met. Her meow and purr spoke volumes to me. It said, "what about me. I need you." It was then I realized, God brought Sabrina to me, to keep us together. I couldn't live with out her and she needed me.
I mentioned my Diabetes because Sabrina had learned for herself how to tell when my sugar is dangerously low or high. When its low, she brings me a piece of candy, and licks my face until I eat it. When my sugar is high, she brings me her leash, so that I will get up and walk her outside.
I love my Maine coon because, GOD brought us together. A gift from God should always be treasured.
Our stories are very similar
Back in 2007, a three-year-old Maine Coon mix cat with blue eyes and huge feet decided to to start showing up inside my back patio area near my condo's reserved parking space. I waited a month for her to go home, but she never did. So I adopted her, and gave her the name Catszandra Bluepurr, but I call her "Ms. Blue" for short. I wanted a dog; a pug to be exact, thus the word that sounds like "Bluepurr" (blooper). Instead, I got a cat who tramples me in the bed each morning when "she" wants to eat; pushes and contorts her way into any position making her body perfectly symmetrical with my arm for absolute petting efficiency; announces with great glee when there is another cat she saw through the window (or bird, butterfly, cricket or leaf flying by); and who comes running ever to remain astonished to observe the magical and beautiful swirling pattern of the flushing toilet.
Unlike my two other male orange tabby cats, whom she has trained to lick her forehead on command, she butts her forehead relentlessly to get attention, and has, in fact, learned to respond to certain words like "din-din", "brush-brush", and "that is one very stinky-stinky in the litterbox" (she oversees that particular clean up process). She saved my life too, and gave it meaning. Who doesn't like being trampled by an 18-pound furrball who is always "just there to watch and be near", wherever I am? And more than that, she has "trained" the other two orange tabbies on proper kitten-cat behavior!
You're not alone...
From that day until 2 months ago, he was my best friend. When I was down and feeling like I wanted to give up, he would touch my face with a huge furry paw and remind me that as long as we had each other, life was pretty darn good. Toby crossed the bridge unexpectedly on 4/13/12 and my heart is still broken. He was only 6 yrs old. I recently adopted a female Maine Coon kitten that has started to fill the hole Toby left in my life. Caoimhe (pronounced Keeva) is such a sweet lovebug. Not the lap cat Toby was but always near me and always telling me how much she loves me. In 3 weeks, I get to adopt another Maine Coon baby sister for Caoimhe and me to love on. I'm sure that life will be full of laughter and love. I thank God every day for bringing these special creatures I to my life. Toby changed my life and my 2 new babies will pick up where he left off.
My furkids and I wish you years of happiness with Sabrina. We hope that life brings you everything you want and deserve.
What A Beautiful Story!
Hope you will give us an up date!
Thank you all

My cats were sent to me by God, too.
Later when I came back to faith in Christ, I looked back one day, and realized with amazement that this was all part of God's plan for me. He sent me those cats to keep me alive until I found the way back to Him. Now, I am able to do anything through Christ, but I still cherish my cats.
