From the Sarah Blair Series
by Debra H. Goldstein
I love being a second fiddle. Considering I spent a good part of my life hiding in yards and scrounging for food, it took me awhile to trust Mr. Rogers, the man who kept putting food and water out for me. I was scared to get near him for fear he might hurt me. He never did. He just kept patiently trying to entice me to him.
Ironically, it took something happening to him to make me forget about myself and race to lick his face. Do you know what he did? He gently cuddled me and made me feel safe. Here I was trying to tell him I cared, and he turned the tables on me.
While I was with him, he treated me well. When he couldn’t take care of me anymore, I was frightened what might happen to me. I’d gotten used to being loved.
Well, Mr. Rogers didn’t let me down. He and his friend, Maybelle, found me a home with her daughter, Sarah Blair. Sarah already had a cat who ruled the roost, but Sarah opened her house and heart to me. RahRah, the cat, proved to be an okay guy, if I stayed in my place. I don’t have a problem with that. Playing second fiddle to RahRah still means I get lots of love from Sarah and you know, thanks to Sarah and RahRah (and Mr. Rogers when I see him), I always feel safe.
