Estrella Finds a New Home

It all started out with the teacher who lives below me feeding this adorable kitten.  I started calling her Spot because of the white spot on her neck.  She called her Star because the spot looked like a star.  I had to agree that Spot is not a good name for this little beauty.  On the following Saturday after she started feeding her, I woke up at 5:30 in the morning to let the dog out. Or should I say the damn dog woke me up to demand I let her out. Anyway, there she was saying, "Feed me."  And I did, because she was too cute but skinny.  I fell for her... hook, line and sinker.  I took to the vet and had her dewormed and her first set of vaccinations.  Thank God the vets are so inexpensive here in Mexico.  The vet put Estrella as her name on the vaccination card because it means star in Spanish. Then I brought her home.  She loved being inside. She loved getting attention.  She loved my bed.  But she didn't love Daisy Dog or Sam Cat.  And I wasn't ready for another cat. I already have one - for the past 18 years.  Yes, that is correct. Old Sam is 18 years old.  I found Estrella a good home. She is living with her new family and she will be loved.  I miss her.  Maybe I can file for visitation rights?
