one day (July 5, 2010) i was parked on my block, unloading groceries. a man pulled up in a SUV, rolled down his window & said, "Want a cat?"...he reached to his right, picked up a cat that had been sitting in the passenger seat & held her up. she looked uncomfortable, eyes pleading as if to say, "Take me out of here." ...we locked eyes & i knew i belonged to her & she belonged to me. timing is everything; had it been a minute or two earlier or later i would have missed her. the man sort of threw her in my arms & i said thanks. he rolled out & that was that. i saw him a few months later but he didn't even recognize me so i ignored him. he never deserved her. he picked the right person to ask. that's my girl, she's shy, yet playful. a real sweetheart. & she's tough--she got it from her momma ;-) my beautiful Bell Bell.
