THIS WAS ONE OF MY FAVORITE STORIES THAT I WROTE LAST YEAR DURING CHRISTMAS SEASON SO I THOUGHT I'D BRING IT OVER
It's a week before Christmas and trying to shop where I live makes me want to run for my life. I've always been this way for the past two Christmases. I don't have a lot of people to buy for. I never knew my dad, don't have any siblings that I know of and my mom is in a nursing home in Green Meadows I had to put her in there when she couldn't live by herself anymore. I visit her whenever I can but this year I don't know if I will. When I got home to my apartment I opened my mail box and saw I had the same old mail. Bills, You have won this much money gimmicks and a letter. It kind of threw me for a loop because when I looked at the return address I didn't know it . When I got in I got greeted by my cat Juliet. I adopted Juliet from a shelter in New York called Hugs and Kisses. The lady told me that her original owner was an English professor at NYU and had another cat which he named Hamlet but he was adopted by the person who was fostering him. I opened the envelope and saw it was from a family called Sarantakos.
TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN
I KNOW YOU'RE PROBABLY WONDERING WHY I'M WRITING THIS LETTER TO YOU IT'S BECAUSE OF YOUR CAT JULIET. I WAS THE ONE WHO ADOPT HER BROTHER HAMLET AND A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO HAMMIE NEARLY GOT RUN OVER BY A CAR WHEN HE ESCAPED FROM HIS CAT CARRIER WHEN I WAS BRINGING HIM TO HIS VET APPOINTMENT. AFTER NEARLY LOSING HIM IT GOT ME THINKING OF HIS FAMILY. I KNOW THE MAN WHO ORIGINAL OWNED HAMMIE HAS SINCE PASSED BUT THROUGH THE HELPFUL PEOPLE OF THE ANIMAL SHELTER THEY TOLD ME HAMMIE HAS A SISTER YOUR CAT SO I WAS WONDERING IF YOU WOULD BRING YOUR CAT TO THE ADDRESS ON THE ENVELOPE SO HAMMIE CAN HAVE A FAMILY REUNION OF SORT. I WOULD BE HONORED IF YOU DO
I went over to Juliet as she watched the snow fall. "What do you think Juliet you want to go meet you brother Hamlet?"I inquired. She put her back paws on my knees and licked my nose which made me giggled. "All right Juliet looks like we're going to Green Meadow to visit my mom and your brother Hamlet" I stated patting her.
