A rare photo of my Sassy Snowshoe Siamese,
She normally lives upstairs in her closet.
Yes, she owns it but allows the rest
of us to venture in for visits.
In the afternoons, after her naps,
she will come downstairs for pets.
Only because we've made too much noise
or not been upstairs at the right time to pet her.
She is a funny girl.
Too many pets and she'll hit you.
It's those white paws that get her in trouble.
We think she was very abused before she was rescued.
She's come a long way since I picked her up at PetSmart.
I told her she was safe now.
Well, as safe as I could make her.
She enjoys her life ruling her brothers.
She yells at them if their shadows come close.
Hissing is her middle name.
She is Siamese after all.
In the afternoons and evenings,
I will go upstairs and call her name.
She comes and sits with me.
Thus, I spend lots of time with her.
Some days she doesn't come to visit.
She naps on her blanket in the closet.
I love this girl more than I can say.
She saved me when I was so sick
after my coma, six years ago.
I woke up and asked about her.
Everyone wanted to know who she was.
She was one thing I did remember.
Silly how that is.
The things that you remember
when you can't even remember
how to walk.
It's that Silly Snowshoe Siamese
and me .. always will be.
Right now, she's napping.
Too early for her to get up.
If you need her,
she'll be taking pets
upstairs on her blanket.
