Mew Year's Eve - I Just Knew

In 2015, I was babysitting Mousie over the holiday period. It was Mew Year's Eve and I was cooking and watching tv in the kitchen and had the back door open so Mousie could run in and out as she would always do. She was a bit slower and cautious than usual, and she had a bit of a serious expression on her face. I was standing there and we both looked at each other, and I said to her: 'Mouse, this is our last NYE together, isn't it?'. I just knew, and I could feel it in my bones. I had a bit of a panic and then sat down. She jumped up on the kitchen table and she sat and stared at me as if to say 'pull yourself together'. We just sat for what seemed like forever, then she jumped off the table and I stood up and continued with my meal prep. It was almost like when you watch a film and hit the pause button, like a moment frozen in time. It has taken me 2.5 years to write about this situation. But sometimes you just know things.

The best we can do is give love, and know that our cats know it, and love us right back.

I hope I'll know about my girl. We are as close as two sheets of paper one on the other.

Hello and so good to meet you and Mousie today. xx
