A Cat Named Makita — 4 Comments

  1. Kita sounds as if she was beautiful and special and I love the words you etched on her stone
    ‘My little Makita. I love you with all my heart. Rest gently, little one’
    Do you have a photo of her?
    It’s heartbreaking to lose a cat and we never forget them.
    I couldn’t watch the video of the tiger, the still picture of her cowed down upset me enough and I wish we could do something to stop all the abuse of cats worldwide but we can only do so much and it’s never enough.
    Take care, I think we all know how emotions about it all can overwhelm you.

    • Ruth, it has taken me this long to be able to functionally deal with that video. Thank you for understanding, for you, it seems, have suffered as much as any poor, lonely, vulnerable cat, newborn or old.

      My field in my military service was as cryptographer, basically, in Mandarin. So, after having so many friends under Mao Tse Tung, back then, and IN Tiennanmen Square, and being an ailurophile, I had a very difficult time steeling myself. to watch it. When I intially read the comments [which was the easier of the two], I thought–having drank not wine but hard liquor to get numb–and I still couldn’t bear to watch it every seeing that still presented from the video–I though that the comments were directed at me and my love for my Zhonguo friends who had migrated here to go to school, sent by their parents, grandparents, only expected to return their to respect their elders…

      I don’t know what to say about that video. It breaks my heart.

  2. Hi Caroline. Your story is very sweet and tender. Thanks for sharing. If you want to go back to making comments that is OK (I can unlock things) provided you keep them a little bit quieter if you know what I mean. Sorry to say that. Just tell me.

    • Michael, you are a true gem of a human being. And your request, respectfully noted. Please do reinstate me?
      An endearing, heartfelt eye to both of you. Thank you for allowing me to rejoin the civil colony.
