Ms Megabyte2



This is the FIRST picture I ever took of Ms Megabyte2.  It was 2 years ago, the day after Christmas and I had just met her a couple weeks before. You can see she is skinny! She was a young, stray, wild kitten and lived under an old shed out behind our place here in Mission, TX. at Retama Village. So this is "home" for her.

Most of you know the story but for those that don't, let me explain about Megabyte2. Besides I just love telling about it.  I get up early...way before daylight and I was outside looking at the sky, checking the weather one morning and I heard this faint little "Meow" way back in the bushes. I looked closer and saw this little black and white kitty setting there meowing at me. She was obviously hungry. I called and called her but she wouldn't come anywhere near me and there was a 5' fence between us.  I saw her several mornings like this.  So one morning I went inside and ask Ms Pat if I could have a little saucer of warm milk  I got a question right back, "What in the world do you want THAT for"? I told her there was a little kitty out there and it was cold and hungry and I wanted to give it some warm milk.  "NO...we're not feeding some stray cat!", she responded.  I finally sweet talked Ms Pat into giving me some warm milk and that is the way I met Ms Megabyte2. I had no idea about the relationship that would develop.

I wrote a Blog about it way back on Jan 14, 2009 entitled "Meet My New Friend".   If you should care to read it, just click on the link.  
In that Blog, I was trying to convince myself that we were going to leave Ms Megabyt2 here when we headed West.  It didn't work and we continued to find out how God does work in mysterious ways. We are both so fond of this little Kitty and the joy she has brought into our lives. Right at a time when I didn't think there would ever be any "joy" ever again. Yes, that reinforced to me that God is there and working miracles. I love you Scott and Mikel.

It was a GREAT WEEK!!!

I can see why you couldn't resist her..she's a sweetie. We would have done the same thing. Life is strange, if you hadn't of adopted her think of all the joy and love you would have missed out on. I'm so glad you took her along 'for the ride'.

God Works in Mysterious Ways. We have a new friend named Soupy. We found a stray little tiny kitten with a soup can stuck on his head. Now he is part of the family!

Loved the story of Megabyte2 and how she became a part of your life.

May God bless you in a special way today as you remember your sons. (We lost a little one 33 years ago, so can understand some of the missing feelings).

What a sweet story abut Ms Megabyte. I went back and read her history. I was sorry to hear about her kittens. She's a very lucky kitty. I must say I got a few tears reading about Megabyte 1 and Scott.

We are getting ready to full time and our kitties are going with us. It's amazing how easily cats adapt.

We're currently about 50 miles north of your old stomping ground, Tallahassee.

Mike, & Pat, I can't wait for next month to get here when I will be going home and meeting Sadie, the pup my Son & his girlfriend adopted, I remember when our Duke left us and I said no I don't want another dog right now, somehow Rigg's ended up on my chest and looked in my eye and my heart said, " OH all right", I look at the big lop now and I know God intended us to have him and him to bring joy into our lives. Megabyte2 was truly a gift to you guys from above. Be safe out there. Sam & Donna...

I remember well reading your blog about how you met Ms. Megabyte 2 and it was a wonderful story.

It's great that it's turned out so well for you both not to mention Ms. Megabyte 2 who is, indeed, one lucky little cat!

That is a great story and I am sure she is very happy that you came into her life, as well.

Mega2 is a cutie. When I read the "beginning" back in 2009, I laughed because I could tell that kitty was going with you when you left...you just didn't know it. Pets bring such joy to us.

Isn't it funny sometimes how God fills our needs. I am just glad He always has the answers.

Hugs to you both.
