We did not get the first little girl kitty after all, because she showed no interest in me, but I did get a blue and white male Devon neuter kitty who chose me, called Fitty Pisky, on Oct. 29th. Unfortunately, he came down with ringworm 2 wks. after we had him, but by Christmas he wasn't having any more outbreaks. We isolated him for a good part of the time in a bathroom in our loft. After an early morning bathroom break, I let Fitty come in bed with me. He was lying on my right side at waist level and then started chewing and pulling buttons on my PJs, so I rolled on my back and he snuggled up under my right armpit. I was just relaxing before I had to get up listening to music on the radio when I felt a cat walk a couple of steps on the bed near my feet on my left, then I felt the duvet be snugged against my left thigh. There was some weight to it. I thought I had left the door open and that Zuba had come in but I hadn't. It felt like a cat snugged up beside my left thigh for several minutes, and then it was gone. The down duvet has no weight to it, and I'm sure it was "Alkee" in spirit that came to visit me, because that is where she was just before she died. I knew that morning she was dying and was very sad and crying, and she was lying in that same spot, but then dragged herself up to my face to butt me on my cheek, as if it say "don't cry". Shortly afterward, she jumped off the bed and dragged herself around the perimeter of the bedroom and then settle under a small chest of drawers. I left her there undisturbed while I went downstairs to get some breakfast and when I returned she was comatose. So I brought her to the sofa in the living room where I could observe her and sit beside her. Through the rest of the day she flitted in our out of unconsciousness (often with her legs moving as if she was running) and then around 4 pm, she died. I think this morning Alkee came back just to say she is OK, as I still miss her even with my sweet lovable Fitty. She is the second cat I've had that has come back for a brief visit after her death. One of my beloved Manx girls gave me two visits. Is there life after death for cats? I truly believe there is, and that we will see them again in the spiritual world.
