At 79 years of age I found love again in my Burmese cat

At 79 years of age I found love again in my Burmese cat

On December the 1st 2009, my significant other of 27 yrs passed. I became lonely and very depressed. I wanted company to love but my age (79 year) gave me worries as to keeping a kitten.

I made a breed search and subsequently a breeder search which led me to a breeder who had a 6 yr old spayed female. After 2 weeks negotiation and a 300 mile round trip I adopted a tortoiseshell, European Burmese.

She follows me everywhere and waits under the bathroom sink while I shower. She is constantly on my lap and sleeps in the crook of my arm.

She head butts me and noses my forehead. She loves to retrieve things. Her favorite object is the ring from a half gallon milk carton.

Sioux “Soo” is a joy to behold in my life.

And oh!..she loves for me to have visitors..

Your story is lovely. I suffer from epilepsy and severe depression and would not be here without my girl. She knows when I’m ill or sad and will sit with me patting my hand with her paw. Burmese cats aren’t like any other and my life is all the richer for having her.

It’s so nice to read how happy you and Soo are together,you must have been terribly lonely before she came along.
Thank you for your lovely uplifting story.

Hi Rod, I enjoyed your story. It shows how important our domestic cats are to us and how much they can help us through life. For that reason alone we should always respect them.

Thanks for sharing.
