I used to say that Sasha “wakes up smiling”! And she did just that every day for the seven years I was blessed to have her. This is the story that I like to tell about Sashi and will share with you that pretty much sums up her unique little life… and maybe even a little more. Sasha Ross had a compromised respiratory system with breathing issues most or all of her life, but God in His fashion saw to it to let her, a little stray kitty “with gold-green eyes, silky gray-fur and a plume tail…wondering in an apartment complex” in Wilmington, NC, be rescued to only then be adopted by the most likely family to give her away (and they did!) to an auntie in Atlanta with the perfect home for her to thrive, then unexpectedly move them to the only nearby townhouse for sale, that just so happened to have a screened door porch, in a neighborhood with the sweetest little indoor/outdoor kitty for a neighbor, Felix, so that she could have the little friend she couldn’t otherwise have inside ….and that little friend would be with her even on her last two days! If God would go to those lengths for Sashi, making sure she was taken care of and letting her live beyond anyone’s expectations, then he hasn’t forgotten any of us!
I have no idea why He picked me to take care of this special needs little kitty, especially since I’m not your typical “animal person”, but that’s how God rolls and I’m so glad He did! Never underestimate who or what God will use in your life to demonstrate his love if we will open our hearts to it.
To the smartest and purrrrtiest purrrrrty in the whole wide world, I miss you baby girl!
