Meyou



















This is our Mom's cat Meyou. She is almost 10 years old and was rescued at about 6 weeks old by our stepsister who found her outside in some very cold New England weather. Mom and Stepdad had recently lost their beloved Bunky cat at that time, and Mom was certainly not in the market for another cat, but how could she say no?! Don named her Meyou because she was for "me and you" he told Mom. But Meyou was always more of a Daddy's girl... until his passing last summer. As a kitten, she couldn't even jump up on the bed, but he would pick her up and she'd lay on his belly for hours. She'd wait in the front window for him to come home in the evenings and we swear she knew the sound of the car as it turned onto the street. Then they'd enjoy an appetizer of shrimp together before dinner every nite. She never did turn into a lap cat, and doesn't like to picked up and doesn't even like to be petted for long. But she always likes to be nearby surveying the scene. His passing has been just as difficult for Meyou as it has been for Mom. Meyou was in mourning for a long time, but we think she understands now that he is not coming home this time. Meyou still will not go on his side of the bed. Mom's retired now, and home with Meyou a lot, and she has turned into a Mommy's girl. They have a different routine now, she won't really eat the shrimp at nite so Mom finally stopped trying that. She loves to be brushed and just hang out with Mom and follow her around. She's always close by. It's wonderful they have each other and Mom always says she doesn't know what she'd do without her. ~Jess and Becky

What a sad and wonderful story. Cats morn just as hard as humans, I've seen it first hand. I won't go into it but it can take it's toll on a kitty. It sounds like Meyou was meant to share your parents lives. I'm sorry about your Stepdad. Meyou is not only very pretty, she sounds very wise.
