Kitty Star of the Week for January 25 - 31, 2004.

Our submitter writes,

"This is Jake as a kitten and Jake today, Jake is a one and 1/2 year old mix of I don't know what. We planned for Jake for a long time, looking for just the right kitten to add to our family of two.


"December of 2002 my 20 year old son died in an auto accident. It is said that an animal can save lives. Well, take it from someone who has lived it. When I came home from the morgue the day of my son's death, I had to be sure I had enough money to do all the running around that was needed for arrangements for a unexpected funeral. Of course I was still in shock and totally numb from heartache and disbelief. I had no idea how I was going to get through this horrible tragedy. Jake took a $20.00 bill out from my hand and ran off with it. (sounds silly ha?) But it was enough to change my mode of thinking have a small smile on my face.

"Jake from that day on never let me go a day without doing something to put a smile on my face and keep love in my heart. So believe me when I say, "Animals feel your pain and they are healers of the heart and soul," because it is true. I will forever be greatful to our Jake... Thank you, Jakey Poops, Mommy and Daddy love you."
