Six Years Ago

It was around this time six years ago that Kitten came to live with me.

I hardly recognize my 18-year-old self, in her first apartment, with her tiny single bed, no closet, a coffee table for a computer desk & a latch to keep her door closed. Cranky roommates, a diet of rice & iced tea, a long commute to school and a mother who was upset that I moved out of her house before finishing grade twelve.

It's strange to think the one thing that has stayed with me all these years is this adorable, fluffy, brat of a cat.

Who were you six years ago?

oh, I remember kitten when she was a kitten. Do you remember eating CHICKEN curry at your house?

It was only once. After that it was tofu all the way. But pre-vegetarian? That was a LONG time ago in that apple green kitchen. With that painting of a tree...

six years ago, 1st time mom to a baby boy :)
I have a kitty who is 14, she, like your kitty, is a reminder of who I was, the young girl that left my Dad's home to live on my own...who got a kitty for company while living on my own :)

Six years ago...I would have been working at a local college, dreaming of moving far away, and certainly no thought of being a mama...living in a rental house, about to buy our first house.

Leaving my first husband, moving into a tiny rental house with my old kitty and older dog, drinking lots of coffee and whiskey, planning to be single forever...no idea that my lovely man and sweet darling boy were "out there" waiting for me!

Kitten is The neighbourhood cat. She likes to elicit random belly rubs. I'm happy she lives next door. :)

6 years ago? I was managing the kids department at Chapters. That feels so long ago! It was pre-Buttercup, pre-Grace & pre-East City. I prefer the Now. :)

How beautiful is she!!

How amazing are you????

Six years ago I was a sad and confused girl in my mid-twenties not sure of where the future would lead... I am grateful it led me here :)

Wow, thats kind of a scary thought. Six years ago I was in a different place, living with different people, loving different people . . . my ideas about who I was, and how I should live and breathe and think . . . they were all very different. I think I'd rather look forward, than back . . .

Six years ago I was sixteen, an awful student figuring myself out, with the same friends I have now. I had a cat, Fido, who disappeared the next year, breaking my heart. He was my baby and my best friend. He followed me everywhere, slept on my chest, and kissed me with his nose. I still miss him.
