A Memoire

Animal Lover Add comments

The angel of death visited our home two Saturdays ago. My faithful and dear cat, Chaka took the place of whoever is to be taken. :(

I noticed that night that he stopped eating and drinking water. I looked at him in his eyes and I knew that something’s going to happen. I didn’t mind if it was late at night already. I got an old cloth and cleaned my the old cat. I tried to feed him but he refused. The following day, I had him drunk some water through a syringe. I knew in my heart that Chaka is going to leave. He may not speak my language but as we stare at each other’s eyes, I knew that he was saying goodbye to mommy. :(

Chaka died on Sunday evening; it was the same evening evening that my daughter was admitted to the hospital due to pneumonia with bronchial asthma. :(

It was March 2003 when I found a kitten who had been beaten up and played around with children in our looban. I got so pity on him that I decided to adopt him inspite of its physical look. Since, it still needed to be fed with milk, I had him drink milk using the tip of a cotton bud. I didn’t know then that there is a special bottle with small nipple designed for kittens available in the market.

Chaka had experienced other illness that we thought would destroy him. But he was one tough cat. He may be tough but he was the sweetest cat we ever had. :)

Chaka will always be remembered and loved. I didn’t cry an ocean then, because I had a chance to make him feel that he is loved even the last moments of his life. In return, he really waited for me, before he breathe his last.

I know that Chaka is in a better place now. For he may not be with me today, but I believe that he is on God’s lap now. I still cannot help but cry when I remember him. And, I love that feeling. I may be hurt but crying when I remember him, means that I am missing him. And I guess, I will always be.

Thank you Chaka for the many years you have given me love. People may say that you were lucky to be adopted in our family. But, little did they know that we are luckier to have you. I also knew that you have attempted to take papa’s place when the angel of death took him.

Mommy will always love and will always miss you..

    Can I simply say what a reduction to find somebody who actually knows what theyre talking about on the internet. You definitely know how you can carry a problem to light and make it important. More folks need to read this and understand this facet of the story. I cant consider youre not more widespread since you undoubtedly have the gift.
