My first cat: Memorable life moments

Last week, I told you all about my first cat — Mewson.

I have so many memorable moments locked away in my memories that include Mewson. Good moments, sad moments, and right down hilarious moments. If you are the owner of a cat, you KNOW what I mean about hilarious moments.

I swear, Mewson was one of those kittens who ended up in some funny situations — like half way up the Christmas tree, or hanging off the top of our curtains by a solitary claw.

He was an ornery kitten, but he was my best pal for a long time.

The most memorable moment, or phase I guess you would call it, that I recall with my cat was when I moved away from my hometown for the first time. Of course, Mewson went with me, so making the shift to a brand new city was a little less scary thanks to him.

This was a major transitional period in my life. It seems so far away now, but it was really only about ten years ago — before I had kids.

It’s really amazing how much companionship a little orange furball can offer a person!
