***SAFE 08/20/16 ****A LETTER TO MY PREVIOUS HUMAN**** If Catherine could write a letter to her previous owner this is what it would sound like: Dear human, my BFF, I woke up today in a place that was not my own. For the 4 years I have been on this earth, you and your home have been all I have known, my whole world. I thought we had something special. I loved you like no other. Suddenly, you are gone, I don’t understand why? I heard someone say you had personal problems, I thought we were in this life together? Us against the world. I even liked living with the dog, we cuddled. What did I do wrong? I am scared and alone now in this place, I don’t know what it is, but it is scary. Cats like me disappear daily and do not return. Will that happen to me? Please help me. Love Catherine. Help Catherine before it is too late.
