I remember when you were just a kitten. You had bald spots, your head was too big for your body, your ears were huge, your whiskers were super long and crooked too.
On that night, even though we had a hostile dog with us, you approached us with kitty curiosity. When we turned to leave you followed us. We let you because we thought you would eventually get tired and turn back. But you, a month old abandoned kitten with legs shorter and smaller than any of us, kept up all 30 mins we walked. At that point I decided you would become part of the family.
You became friends with the once hostile dog, you played with the guinea pig who was always too scared to move, and you became playmates with the next door puppy.
You loved being held and purred like no tomorrow. You loved going on the nightly 30 min walks and joined us almost every night. You had become part of the family.
I just wish I had taken pictures of you before you left. I hope this makes up for it. Rest in peace Maya.
