“What greater gift than the love of a cat?” – Charles Dickens
In a small village, population 700, in the south of France, lived a human, all on her own. She had not had a cat in residence for several years and needed the wise companionship that only a feline, or two, in residence could bring her. Of course, I am Colette and since this is my story, why would a human need more than one when she is blessed with me? Okay, I will give her some credit, I was at the S.P.A. in Port-la-Nouvelle. The resident human was okay but too many people kept coming in and out. Worst of all, they wanted to grab me, touch me… Also there were always other felines coming and going. Yes, I did reach out to this one human, but she was quieter than the others and didn’t grab. No, the fact is that I rescued her from a life of being cat-less!
Please, I am madame Simone and I have come to join mademoiselle Colette and the human. Perhaps she was here first but I do not challenge her, I only want to be her friend. While I was fed and cared for in a very basic manner at the S.P.A. Narbonne, it was so crowded and many were meowing for a place to call their own. It is quiet here, perhaps too quiet with nobody acknowledging me.
