Sassy Cat (yes, that is her name) meowed long pitiful meows cause she couldn't get to me. Trapped on the porch with no way off or out. She finally stopped her noise and just looked at me. A long, silent plea for understanding and love and a bidding to do her will. She won. I released her from her captivity to romp free among the clover weeds (with the drought last summer that's all we have left in Texas.) No grass.
I became a grandma again yesterday, but I won't get the chance to know her because...well, sometimes life works out the way it's supposed to and sometimes it doesn't. Life is a funny thing. It leads us, chases us, deserts us, and sometimes traps us. My heart is heavy today. I feel hopeless and trapped just like Sassy Cat waiting for someone to come open a door and make it all better.
