Kat's Korner >^..^<


It's been 10 years! (Click picture for a link to Scarlett's story)

Why is Everybody So Surprised That I Saved My Furry Five?

Why is everyone so surprised

that I saved my furry five;

that in spite of pain and danger

I brought them out alive?

True my eyes were barely open

but I heard their frantic wails;

through smoke and flames I saw

scorched ears and burning tails.

Every trip was a burdened choice

but I could make no other.

The rescuers have called me cat...

but I am also "mother."

I knew the moment I saw the title of your post, just who this was going to be about. I remember when this happened and I remembered thinking that this was one of God's true miracles. I'm still in awe after all these years!

Hi Fuzz!
