Thanksgiving Day 2015 started out fine. I was awake and alive. I was trying to open a container of Coconut Cool Whip when I took a dive onto the kitchen floor. I recall hoping the rest of the day didn't go south like that Cool Whip. But it pretty much did.
And there I was with tears flowing in the hallway when I see Bob wondering around the hallway. I picked him and as I did the neighbor man opened his apartment door walking out, just looking at me. Obviously he was the faint knock I heard on my door the previous evening trying to tell me Bob was abandoned and in need of getting back into his familiar surroundings. Yet I didn't answer the door. SHEIT.....I looked into the man's eyes with my red swollen crying eyes and said, "Thank you for taking care of my cat." I then walked back into my apartment with my red eyes. (He is such a shy man he merely backed into his apartment.
I went to the local grocery store, purchased a $20 gift card for the no name man who helped Bob. I placed it in an envelope and taped it to his door. Bob has stuck pretty close to me since his little overnight escapade. He could have been put outside and died. He could have been taken the to local inhumane society.... but he didn't and wasn't. Thankful!!
