Friday Flashback - Angel Sookie

Today we're allowing mama to flashback to the 1970's and our Angel Sookie.

Here's a bit about Sookie. One day mama heard a kitty meowing at the front door. Soon there was a noise at the door, so mama went to investigate....and there sat Sookie looking up.....she meowed to mama and mama talked to her. Mama figured she belonged to someone in our neighborhood, so walked away after a bit.

To make a long story short, Sookie was determined to live with mama....when bumping against the door didn't get it to open, she started climbing up the screen door and meowing. She hung at the top of the screen door and meowed until mama opened the door and lovingly took her off the screen and into the house. There was no doubt that she had picked mama!!!

Sookie was totally at home from the start...she loved the whole family and was the best lapcat mama ever had. Our G-Ma named her after a kitty she had had when she was a young girl. Mama and the family had a love affair with Sookie for over 20 years!!!!!

The pictures aren't very good as they were taken "way back when" cameras weren't as good as they are today. :)

Sammy loves the fact that Sookie was a short haired version of "Himself"!!! We both wish we could have known her.

Well you see, Sammy and Andy, Sookie saw the flashing neon sign in the middle of Mama's forehead (visible only to kittehs that need a home) that said "Softie here-just act cute and don't give up."

I'm so glad Sookie had so many happy years with your family!

It's great to remember the cats who came before. Angel Sookie was quite a charmer and beautiful, too. Cats just seem to know which human is right for them.
