A small miracle

"Of all God's creatures, there is only one that cannot be made slave of the lash. That one is the cat." — Mark Twain

IT'S BEEN EIGHT months and 13 days, but yesterday at long last, Anaya purred for the first time.

If you want, you can go back to posts from September 12, 2011 and September 13 to hear how her life and ours initially intersected. We seemed destined for collective happiness, but only now are we beginning to taste some of that.

She was terribly thin when we live-trapped her, but besides that and being extremely stressed and scared, which of course she would be having been so completely feral, she is entirely well. We were the miserable ones along the way. 

I'll tell her story bit by bit as I'm able.

BTW: As much as we enjoyed having our first real vacation in two years, if necessary I would have gladly traded the whole thing for yesterday's small miracle.
