For those of you who have blogs dedicated to our feline friends, I haven’t been able to visit your sites. Just seeing a cat leaves me sad and there’s a big hole in my heart after Toonce’s death. Yesterday afternoon, I happened upon a cat that looked a lot like Toonce. He was minding his business and I went up to him. He hissed at me and ran off into some bushes.
Believe it or not, Toonce and I had a bond. Saying a man has a bond with a cat might sound delusional. I’m sure some of you think I’m insane when I speak of “The Bond.” I know Toonce didn’t know what a bond was yet every night, in rain or cold, there he was waiting for me to show up.
He could easily have been lying on a warm bed but there he was freezing his multi-toed paws off. I think for now I must swear off cats. There will be no dogs in my future, I can’t stand dogs. I’m not afraid of them but I stand my distance. I can’t stand the way they slobber, Toonce never slobbered… How I wish Toonce was still here, oh this too will pass
