My Macy Mae

My Macy Mae

I love cats! It's as simple as that. In my old neighborhood I used to pet these 2 white cats that lived on my street.

One was deaf and very skinny and other was huge. They were natural brothers.

I usually saw these two kitties everyday. At that time, I didn't have any pets of my own.

Then one day... a tiny black kitty came running over to me while I was petting the other 2 kitties. I began to pet her. She purred and purred. Then I'd go home.

This went on for about 2 weeks. I started to feel bad for her because I saw her come out of the neighbor across the street's bushes. So I bought some cat treats and she woofed them down like crazy.

So then, I came up with the crazy idea (normally it wouldn't be crazy, but I had a husband at the time hating cats and wouldn't let me touch them), to buy some cat food to feed the black kitty.

So I did. I hid the food in the trunk of my car.

I would feed her in the morning before I left for work and I would sneak out at night to feed her again. Then I decided I needed to name her...

I didn't want to name her a typical "Black Cat" name like... Midnight, Boo or Spooky, so I named her Macy (got her in the month of May), so her name became Macy Mae.

I watched her fend her way outside. She even got hurt and I couldn't do anything about it because my husband at time wouldn't allow it. But after 3 weeks she recovered. Then winter came.

It was very cold that winter. I would go outside and shovel just to be with her. I would pick her up and hold her. She was so cold and would shake really bad.

Then she disappeared. I didn't see her for about 2 months. I figured she was dead. I still looked for her everyday. I would call her, nothing.

But then one day... I called her and here she was. I was so happy! I couldn't believe it. I picked her up and held her tight. A few months passed and I was finally given the OK to officially have her.

I feel she saved my life because I was very unhappy at home and my mother was dying of cancer and she was the only happiness I had to come home to. Because I didn't want to go home otherwise.

Then my marriage broke up, I moved out and took Macy with me. And she was spoiled rotten with love ever since until she got sick and I had to put her down.

She's my little angel. I love and miss her so very very much!! She really trusted me and knew I wouldn't hurt her.
