The family that brought her back to us said that she was too mean. She hissed all the time and with a young baby in the house they were afraid to keep her. They asked us if we would be willing to take her back.
We said yes.
When she first came back to us she was very scared. Hissing and jumping at everything that moved. She wouldn't let us pick her up or touch her.
That was about two weeks ago.
Last night I went into the bedroom and found her asleep. My wife had left her blouse on the bed and Princess (yes, she's our little Princess) was asleep on top of it.
I stood there for a moment and stared at her. She was so content sleeping on that blouse. As I stood there I realized what that blouse represented. For Princess it meant comfort, security. Home.
What had been a scared and frightened little kitty has now become the joy of our home. So approachable, so loveable, so...family.
It's amazing to me that this "dog person" could love that little kitten so much. But it so warms my heart just to hold her and feel her purring against my chest, to rub her head as she closes her eyes and falls asleep in my arms.
And if I can love her that much, care for her that much.
How much more must my Heavenly Father.
So if you...know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your heavenly Father give good gifts to those who ask Him. - Matthew 7:11 (NLT)
