Cocoa's Mommy

I have this beautiful cat named, Cocoa Marie Burton. She is the love of my life. When she was being born, her mother was having a hard time pushing her out so I reached in and helped through the contractions. After she came out her mother passed away and so I had to clean her up, take the sack off, breath in her mouth to get her to breath. I hand raised my baby from birth. She calls me mommy and she sleeps on my chest every night. She just turned 4 yrs old. Her color is light tan and white, so that is how she got her name. To me she looked like Hot Cocoa. I love her more than I love my own life. Cocoa was the runt of the litter and she had 2 brothers and 1 sister. I spent weeks on very little sleep because I set the alarm clock for every 2 hours so I could feed the and love each and everyone of them. Her brothers and sister were adopted to families when they were 6 months old. I kept Cocoa because of the bond her and I have with each other. I recently tried to commit suicide and when the Paramedics arrived, My Daughter had to pick Cocoa up because she would not let them near me. She scratched and bite 2 of them but luckily they understood that she was protecting me. Like I said she is my one and only love in this world right now.

I hope you are feeling stronger and that Cocoa gives you reason to live. When things are at their worst, I know I am the one my beloved cats look to for everything, and without me, they would be in a hard situation, so it is simply out of the question for me to give up. Hope you can take this to heart and be there for Cocoa -- she needs you!
