Instant Bond with an Empress

My cat came to me as a scared, bedraggled, bone-skinny stray. She literally screamed about how hungry she was. I kept her fed over the next few days while searching for a possible owner, but of course, there was no one. Feeling a sense of urgency, I planned to take her to a vet the next morning she came to be fed. But she didn’t show up. I felt a deep sense of disappointment. I prayed she would come back. I put out water and food for her … and waited.

Months went by with no sign of her. I prayed every day, asking God to take care of her for me. Then one night I heard a cat meowing on my patio. I peered outside, and there was her sweet little face, gazing up at me. I couldn’t believe my eyes! She began shrieking with hunger. She wolfed down the food I gave her and appeared to be weak and terribly thin … even thinner than before.

I heard a rustling noise. I scanned the fenced-in patio. Then I saw the cause — a tiny kitten was hiding under the barbeque equipment. Just then I caught sight of another one. A careful search uncovered five kittens. They couldn’t
have been more than three weeks old.

She had brought me her babies! How on earth did she find me again? We had only intermittently connected for a few short days, and that had been months ago. Our apartment complex had hundreds of units. They all look alike. How did she know it was mine? And how did she manage to get all those kittens over the tall, solid wood fence in her weakened state? She knew I would be able to help her and her babies.

I realized that somehow, an intuitive link had been established between her and I in our first encounters. I don’t know how … I only know Spirit has everything to do with it. This little cat taught me that our intuitive links with animals can be established in a twinkling, and remain an enduring bond, even if you are apart for a time. There is no boundary except what the mind may put there.

The outcome was a good one. The vet declared them all healthy. With gentle love and care, the feral kittens, who once hissed and spat at human touch, gradually turned into sweet, affectionate Velcro. They would hang onto my bare skin with their wee claws like little purring burrs. When they were old enough, I found loving homes for all of them. I kept their mother and named her Empress, for she truly is a Queen. I am grateful she taught me that animals really do, choose you.

    It’s wonderful that you have had a similar experience, so you know how it feels! It’s good to know there are other folks out there like you that are good to animals in need.

    Hi Kallista!

    I did comment before the blog changed but it must have been wiped out. Just wanted to say I loved your description of them being little purring burrs! I can visualize that! I have had many cats in my life & there was one in particular that had disappeared for a couple months when I was a teenager & we were heartbroken until one day there she was skinny & meowing at the door. I was just a little after Thanksgiving & when we opened the fridge she jumped in & grabbed the turkey carcass right out of there! LOL! 🙂 Hugs to you!

    Hi Kallista!
    I love your description of them of being purring burrs!!! I can visualize that! I have had many cats over my life so far & they are truly resilient animals. A similar story for me was when I was a teenager & my cat went missing for a couple months & came home!! We had no idea where she had gone, then one morning there she was, skinny & meowing at our door. It was a couple days after Thanksgiving & when we opened the fridge she literally jumped in & pulled the turkey carcass out of the fridge by herself!!! LOL, we could not believe what we were seeing!

    What a sweet story, Kallista! Most of the pets I’ve had in my lifetime have been strays. Forging a bond with an animal is a wonderful, life-changing experience. All it takes from us is a little food, water and affection to care for them. In return, we get unconditional love that is free of judgement. It’s a wonderful exchange, especially when you know you’ve saved a life (or more than one). Animals have been known to return the favor.

    Hi Kallista,
    Thanks for such a lovely story. It’s so wonderful that we have psychics here at CP really trying to help animals. I feel the cat knew you would do the right thing-what a connection. Amazing.

    Great story animals are really in tune and they will always find their way back even if its great distances…they are amazing. She knew of your kindness and love would extend to the babies how psychic is that ….
    Many Blessings

    Hi Jen,
    Intuition was at work with the editorial choice of the picture of a black and white cat. Empress is a tuxedo cat; mostly black with a white chest, underbelly, and socks.
    How cool is that?!

    Thank you for your kind support, Gina Rose. I very much appreciate it, especially from you, because you truly are a guardian angel on earth for so many desperate animals.
    And thank you for affirming that Empress knew she could trust me with her babies. It means the world to me that she somehow intuitively knew that. God was definitely at work here.
    Bless you, too!

    Hi Kallista,
    What a sweet story …….Empress knew who she could trust with her babies…..that is why she brought them to you !
    I’m glad the kittens were alright and that you could place them in caring homes.
