a short true story for Writer's Cramp
|A sleek black female cat showed up at our door - out of the blue. Short hair and very loveable, she would come inside, but preferred being outside. We took to feeding her, and got her a food and water bowl. We set up a litterbox as well, but she rarely used it, being an outdoor cat. We called her Midnight, as she was solid black.|
Her favorite thing was to leave headless mice on the front porch. I guess this was her way of showing love . On the plus side, our mice population went down in and around our old farmhouse.
She did this for about 2 years, and then, just as quietly as she appeared, she disappeared. My family and I were sad after she left, and we never found out what happened to her. But I feel as though as unconventional a rescue it was, "Who rescued who?" I can answer that she rescued us.
