This a story I would like to share with you about a little kitty named Nakita who stole our hearts. She was born in my bedroom closet 24 yrs ago in Arizona and was just a white ball of fur with a pink nose and pink ears. She was a sweet, loveable, smart little kitty. I raised her with my boys. She was with through surgeries I had and stayed on my bed until I was well and she would go to the boys to hug them when they cried. Nakita was a very special little kitty that I spent half my life with.
When I moved to Wisconsin from Arizona she was 17 yrs old and never had seen snow or flew on an airplane, but she was a champ with both like she had flown or seen snow all her life. I was so proud of her to be so trusting to take her across the states to a different world than the one she had known.
She loved to Sunbathe and watch out the window at any chance she got.
Nakita was with me when I became an empty nester with the boys starting their lives off to college she was there to keep me company and fill my life with laughter. I really couldn’t have done it without her.
The years went fast and soon Nakita was 21 yrs old and she got sick with kidney failure and pancreatic problems. I took her to the vet and they sent us home with pain meds and IV fluids that I had to learn to give her. It was the hardest thing I had to do. but I was willing because I just wasn’t ready to let her go. She gave me strength when I didn’t have it so it was my time to give it back to her. I nursed her for months, but she wasn’t getting better so I had to say Goodbye to my precious Nakita at age 21 1/2 yrs old. It was the hardest thing I had ever done to make that decision to say goodbye.
I was surprised by the vet calling me a week later that they have something for me and it was her paw print. I couldn’t believe it. I was speechless and just cried. It was the best gift I could of ever gotten at that time. I was lost without her our house had changed it was quiet and sad just Nakita’s old toys there to see and we had to relocate to another city and I was a mess not wanting to leave the house with Nakita’s memories there, but we had to go. Three month went by and we moved and our new house was great but it wasn’t a home yet. We were still sad from loosing Nakita.
I was looking through the internet and there were some kittens in Chicago and Wayne suggest we go take a day trip to go see these kittens but not to get one. As we pull up to this home with snow everywhere on the ground a butterfly flew by us in the dead of winter and I thought that was very strange to see a butterfly in the winter and then we see a rainbow behind the house. I started to tear up because it was a sign that we were supposed to be here at this moment. We went in to the house and there was this 1lb little black kitty and she just looked at us and started purring. She kept her eyes on us, but not scared at all. We looked at each other and said at the same time we want to take her home. On our drive home Wayne said, what are you going to name her? I said, Angel with no hesitation. Wayne said Why Angel? I said Nakita is our Angel guiding us now and it’s fitting for her name to be Angel.
This little girl Angel has changed our lives with full of laughter and our house is finally a home. That’s why we share her with you to pay it foreword to give you laughter, love and a smile daily what she does for us. I hope you continue to follow us on Angle’s Eye-Persian on Facebook and Katzenworld blog because she has more to show and teach us all.
RIP Nakita – Feb. 24, 1991 – Sept 6,2013
