Since I am new to blogging I found out today is "Pink Saturday"! How good for me! I have soooo much pink! Pink bedrooms, pink dishes, pink front door you name it, I have it in Pink!
But my most cherished Pink is this...............................
Later in the month my Mother came down to visit me. She soon pulled out of her purse something she had cut out of the local paper. The piece of newspaper held the "Pet of the week". Yes, you guess it, it was Pinky! I asked my Mom if she wanted to get him? She had never been a cat person, but thought it might be nice, since we had lost the family dog a few years before and she really did not want a dog again.
Since my Mom came to visit for her birthday, I thought Pinky would make a great present. I called the animal shelter to see if they would "hold" him till we got home......unfortunately the answer was NO. I was disappointed but I was persistent and called the shelter everyday till we got home.
On the ride home I kept asking my Mom, "do you want to go get the cat?" she really could not decide. Then we got to a point in the road where we had to make the choice and she said "oh let's go get the cat!"
We got to the shelter and told them what we wanted........they brought out a cat and my Mom knew right away..."that's not him!" So back they went and then appear Pinky! I picked him up and away we went. Mom took him to the vet and the vet commented on what a big cat he was going to be.
In November my energetic, go getter Mother died unexpectedly. When I got to the home I grew up in I pulled Pinky up in my arms and held him tight. He was the last gift to my Mother and holding him feels like holding my Mom. Sometimes we just look at each other and........we know.
So I hope your Pink is something special to you!
