In think it was 1998 mum and dad and my sister and me went to leigh cats and dogs home. We went to get our first cat. Mum and dad and my sister followed me. Dad said go on. Take your time to pick one. Saw one he hissed at me so looked at his notes not good with children they said. Your cute but can't take you. Then Zara I came to you loves children they said. I want Zara I want her. We payed for you Zara took you home. You settled in well. You scratched my hand, got into my room and ate one of my fish. How you got in I don't know my door was shut. Still we loved you. At the age of 3 you were run over, how did you get home. Dad rushed you to the vets. They kept you in. You were in there for 2 weeks. As a last resort they amputated your tail. That didn't work. You got worse. We had to have you put to sleep. I still have your collar Zara and the video of your first christmas you amusing grandma attacking the wrapping paper. Now it has been 10 years and 3 months. Love you Zara. I miss you. we lost here in think it was 2000 or 2001 she was 3.
