Our Ghost Kitten

Baby Fluffy's last picture
Hi everybody! It's Midnight Munchkin Whineybutt here! For those of you who don't know me, I'm the adopted daughter of Furby and the sole survivor of the Whineybutt kittens. I had a near death experience when I was little and it left me able to see our ghost kitten!
Let me explain.....A few months ago Mama Laura and Grandma Elisa rescued a feral kitten who had been stuck in a tree. A neighbor climbed the tree and got him down. He was a cute little thing who went around meowing after them. They couldn't leave the room or he was right behind them just a meowing! So grandma said she was going to make him an honorary Whineybutt. Mama called him Baby and grandma called him Fluffy. His official name became Baby Fluffy Whineybutt.
Baby Fluffy loved living with all of us here. He came in and took right over like he owned the place. He even got top seat on the cat tree on his first day here.
Grandma ran an ad in the paper in case he was missing and no one answered. She had him checked for a microchip and there wasn't one. He could stay!
He was a good kitty who chased his tail and slept in the bed with mama and me. He'd even attack her toes in the middle of the night. He was so fat and fluffy. Our cat Mia fell in love with him and gave him baths.
He'd only been with us a month when he got sick one night and died the next morning. This was right before Christmas. Mama stayed up all night the night before he died. She held him and gave him something to drink every hour. I knew it was bad when they said he was getting cold because that's what happened to my family right before they died.
I know you're not going to believe me but I'm telling the truth! Baby Fluffy is back and me and Mia are the only one's who can see him! He was playing with mama's feet in the bed a few nights ago.
Mama told Grandma Elisa about feeling him play with her toes. That's when Grandma Elisa confessed she had dreamed about Baby Fluffy. In her dream he was a big cat and he was peeking at her around the computer as she wrote a story. Only it wasn't a dream. Fluffy really did look around the computer and then made Grandma Elisa THINK it was a dream.
Baby Fluffy has been with us a few weeks now. Several nights ago our ghost kitten was playing with grandmas hair while he was laying in his favorite spot on the back of the couch. Grandma thought Cocoa was doing it and kept brushing her hand through her hair. You should have seen how fast she moved when she realized there was nobody there that she could see. I never realized antique cat ladies could move so fast!
Mia has been laying on the back of the couch a lot since Baby Fluffy came back. They look a lot alike and I think that's why she's so sweet on him. Other than me and Mia I don't think the other cats can see him. Mia had a near death experience when she first came here so that explains why she can see him too.
I jumped in grandma's lap a few days ago just to get a little petting. When I went to get up I couldn't. Baby Fluffy was holding me down with his paw. He sure has gotten stronger since he crossed the bridge!
I don't know how long he plans to stay with us. He's not always here. I think he pops in for a visit every so often to make sure we're all okay.
Do any of you have Rainbow Bridge kitties who come visit you? Can you see them or just feel them? Can your cats see them too? I'm really curious about this. I know I can't be the only one.
I hope everybody liked my first story for pictures-of-cats. I'm still little but I'm learning. I think I know a lot for an eight month old kitty!
