My baby boy, the love of my life. This little being has really changed my life. Of course, I am talking about my rescue cat Chippy. Although Chip and I are different in so many ways, I have raised him as my own, and he is now a reflection of myself.
Chip has had so many trust issues in the past, not only with human beings, but his own kind. As a kitten, Chip was horrendously abused and this in turn, left him to turn his back on the world, unwilling to love or trust ever again. Although I did not suffer the same fate as my little cat, many high school and childhood experiences have turned me to cast my shadow on the world, never allowing anybody into my life. Through rehabilitating Chip, we began to understand each other. We began to trust and learn how to love again. Chip learned that not all human beings are put on this earth to harm him and I learn this as well when I met the love of my life.
I never thought that I would have such a deep bond with a common creature of our society, but somewhere deep down, I feel as if we have identical souls and have experienced the same hardships.
