You Know It's Cold In South Texas When--------

When Susie takes to her bed again and stays there with John's flannel shirt covering her. I guess she feels safer with the car between her and the door. John put the car inside in case there is ice in the morning. We think the big white neighborhood tom cat either looked in under the garage door or came in to eat her food. She was feeling bad and got scared. We leave the door propped up about a foot when the sun is shining so Susie can go out in the sun and get some fresh air. I opened the door a little while ago and she just looked over her shoulder to see if it was worth while to get up. It wasn't, no food in my hand so she stayed put. She seems to be better health wise but not well and she is old. Susie has always had a different personality from other cats I've had. When she was young she never played like kittens and young cats do. I've always heard cats like catnip. She would sniff it and walk off, waste of money. Cats catch and eat birds, right? Not Susie, she just rests on top of the tall garbage can and watches them as if they are the most boring idiots she has ever seen. Maybe her mama leaving she and her brothers when she was young had an effect on her. Bless her heart we couldn't have had a better cat though. She never climbed on the screens wanting inside. She always knew she wasn't allowed inside, only that she could walk through from one door to the other and look down the hall but not go there. She knows she is to stay in her own yard but can walk to the mailbox with us. She knows not to talk to strangers, in fact she hardly ever purred at all. Susie is one of a kind.

Cats are unique, indeed. They each bring their own personalities to the table and you can't help but love them.

She sure sound like one of a kind. What I like best is your understanding of sweet Susie. May she still have a few of those lives left.
Always a good visit to South Texas./

Poor Susie, she is truly one of a kind. I hope she can take this cold a little longer. Spring has got to come sometime. She sounds like a good cat.

Your post makes me want a cat. I have never had one in my life..lol...I am very allergic to them in close proximity. But I can dream, can't I? My children have cats and I just don't get really close for too long.
I don't have a dog of my own, either. Sometimes my desire to own one nearly wins over my better judgment...lol. Good entry.

I truly believe you or anyone that has a cat never really owns it. It owns you so subtly you don't know it. Susie sounds like she is getting tired but she knows a good home when she has it. Knowing you she has always had a good home.

She sounds like a wonderful friend to your family over the years, I hear the struggle in your words as she is aging but wanted to share no matter where Susie goes, I have a feeling she will always be one of a kind. God bless! :-)

Susie sounds precious and that is probably what you love about her so much!
