A Silly Boy and a Shabby Kitty

This is a story of a little boy. He spent his week days with his Nana. He fell in love with a soft little kitty that lived at Nana's house, and was actually not a kitty at all. It was a snow leopard, but to a wee little boy, a kitty. What should his name be? Why Kitty, of course, said this one year old little boy! And he loved him daily. Kitty was always found tucked under his boys arm, playing in the yard, watching TV, and even while swimming.

Last month Kitty was here on a visit with his boy. A few days later, after he could not be found, I was called to search my home and garden for Kitty. Nope, he was not here, and the boy was sad! He was missing his Kitty so! His Mama held him and tried to calm his tears, and fears. "We will find Kitty soon"..... And he was still lost, the Kitty, and the boy without, his Kitty! His Nana was hurting for this boy, and his Mama, that were missing the kitty so terribly. She searched the Internet until she found a new Kitty. Hooray!!! This will make my little boy so happy, and the Kitty was delivered. This little boy tried with all his might to love this kitty that kind of looked like his faithful Kitty. But...he was too small, and he didn't like his whiskers, and he just wasn't the same, and he was sad! So, Nana got back on the Internet searching for the right sized kitty. She was told that the little kitty was a Beanie Baby kitty and that the original kitty was a "Classic TY Snow Leopard". This man had one more in stock, and he was delivered! But this new bigger kitty was still not right. Our boy tried to be happy about this kitty but his spots were larger, the kitty was fluffier and still it wasn't HIS Kitty!

Well the boys Mama was organizing the pantry today and when she moved some things on the way up high top shelf.......Kitty was just sitting there, in a bucket, waiting for his boy to come back for him! It seems the boy was hiding Kitty from his sister! He climbed up on a high chair to find the special hiding place where she would never find Kitty, and he too, forgot where he hid him!

Our boy can be found watching TV, eating dinner, and just about now , sound asleep with his faithful Kitty locked up under his arm.

Right. where. he. belongs!

Now, is it any wonder that not one of these kitties would take Kitty's place? They do not even remotely look like our favorite Kitty!
And the boy, and his Mama, were HAPPY!
The boy also thinks that his Kitty now has a wife and a baby! They are the Kitty Family!

Jan, This is such a touching story. You are the best Nana, trying to find a replacement kitty two times. While I was reading your story and coming to the end of it, I had such a happy feeling in my heart thinking maybe, just maybe original "Kitty" was found. I am so happy for Braeden and Dana that Kitty was found. I'm sure Braeden slept peacefully tonight and had pleasant dreams.

Yeah!! Hurrah !! The lost has been found!! Now Kitty has a family and Braeden has more to love. It is so interesting how children fall in love with their "things". And to them they really are not things. They may be a toy, a blankee, a pillow, and maybe even for some a coat. I remember a little girl who now goes by the name of Nana who had a coat she did not want to take off. She even slept in it. LOL
