Today’s guest post comes from Kosmo
The Life of Kosmo
On June 2014 we were mourning, our hearts were broken. Our dear cat
Viiru had heard his sister´s call from the Rainbow Bridge and left us.
We were crying every day and we decided never ever to take a pet,
because we cannot stand the moment they must go.
After three weeks a young black and white cat walked to our yard. I was
sitting on the steps and the cat came straight to my lap. I was really
surprised, my first thought was that Viiru has come back, only the
colours were different.
I asked the cat wait for a second, and I brouht him a bowl full of cat
food. He was really hungry.
Now Kosmo tells his story:
I had lost my home, I was in a strange village, I walked and walked
trying to find my home. I was hungry, tired and my tail was injured when
I heard a human voice, it was a grey haired women and I fellt so
terrible lonely that I walked to sit to her lap. She gave me food, much
food. I ate and went to sleep under a bush. I follwed this human all
time, that she is does not disappear.
These two humans took photos of me. They said that they try to find my
home. They didn´t find and nobody missed me.
Humans asked me to come in and they showed me a cup full of food. So I
went in and never came out. I got a home. In ten minutes humans arranged
food, water, a bed and a litter box. Then I slept twelve hours on the
At the beginning happened a strange thing. Humans said that a vet is
coming to see me. I did not know what is a vet. She was a young women
and I thought that maybe this vet came to play with a pet. No way, she
was weird, wanted to look to my ears, my eyes, my mouth and suddenly she
lifted my tail and looked there, very inpolite. Then she said I was
castrated. No idea what that ment, but humans said that it is a good
thing. The vet said that I am about three years old and my tail will get
Now I have Mom and Dad and I am a working cat. In the morning I wake up
humans to give me food. Then I work with my Dad. We set fire on
fireplaces and also we have to bring wood from downstairs. I always
check that there is wood enough. I also am a guard, I watch the yard and
birds from the window. Dad is feeding all the birds in the whole world.
Then I tell Dad when the beggar cats come to ask for food. I run really
fast to the window, so he knows there is a cat. My main work is, of
course, to be a lovely pet, and I am, really.
I love to bath in a warm sauna. I really enjoy the heat.We sit there all
together. And I always want to put fire on sauna stove, with Dad, he
doesn´t give me matches.
I am terribly afraid of what is behind the outdoor. Humans tried to
teach me to walk in a leash, but I was in panic. They tried many ways to
take me out with them, but it was impossible. Mom said that I have
trauma, I don´t know where it is. And humans decided not to try more,
and I am an indoor cat.
My name is Kosmo, it comes from a Russian word Kosmonavt, same as an
astronaut, but for Finns is easier to say Kosmo. My humans said that I
had to come from the space, because nobody knew me or missed me. Mom
said that one possibility is that somebody throw me out from a car, so
that I could not find my home, but I like to be from the space. My
humans think that I was sent from the Heaven to help them with their
So life goes on, I am happy. And I want to say that take care of your
cats, I know what is to be abandoned.
