Some good, and...

  I just got off the phone with my sponsor, and i'm not all sure about him. I told him about my relaps and things. some things he said were alright, but some I'm not all that sure about. Kinda pissed me off abit about some things. Sounded to me like he was talking as if he knew everything about me. I've only casually talked to him, perhaps twice. Anyway, I've met lots like that over the years, so I'm not going to let it get to me. Kinda made me feel like he was talking to me like I'm some complete idiot, that has no idea about how to live, God or anything else. Made me feel like he wasn't hearing anything I was trying to say. I got some news for him tho, I may not have been the perfect success story, but I've sure learned a lot in my time, and yea, I do have things to offer. Well see how this goes. Anyway, just got the chance to help a cat out. I thought I heard a cat in the hallway, so I opened the door and heard a cat cry. The people were downstairs with one. they said it was hurt and hit by a car. I thought, "Oh no." I got my slippers on and pajama bottoms and went down to see. He was a big ol tabby cat. I could see his eye was hurt because it was almost closed and swollen. They said he couldn't walk so they had a towel around him. He was smelly,and I figured he had been crawling in the snow, and through slush on the road, so I figured he must have been sleeping under porches or something. I knewhe sure been through a rough one. I started petting him, and I could hear him purring. I thought that was strange if a cat just got hit. I felt along his body and he seemed alright. he didn't bite me, or bother like he would have if I touched something seriously wrong. I patted him more and scratched behind his ears. He was really purring pretty good, and I could see he looked happy that we were helping him. I figured he must have been hurt awhile ago, and mostly just been outside for a long time in the cold struggling. It's been biterly cold the last couple of days, so I figured it may hasve happened yesterday or early today. I went upstairs and got a tin of food for him, and put it on a plate. He really went for it. He was really hungry, like he was starving. I ended up giving him the whole can and he gobbled it all up in big mouthfulls. They said they had called the humane society and were waiting for them. I felt his legs, and they didn't feel broken, but I could see some blood, where some fur had been scraped away by something. He tried getting up after eating, and I coaxed him to keep trying, but his legs were hurt, but I knew thought they weren't broken. He seemed really happy that he had been found and brought in. He just kept purring. I thought about taking him upstairs, but I really didn't want that. Jimmy, and Jet would probably get upset. I thought about asking the people downstairs to take him in and I would help them look after him, but  the humane society arrived. The guy came in and said they had been looking for him since yesterday when he got hit by a car. I guess he had gotten scared and craweld somewhere to hide and been in that freezing cold all night. Poor thing must have been crawling home, and was just about to die when they found him by the curb. I was really impressed tho by his strong nature to get home. The humane society guy just put him in a cat cage. I almost got mad because he just kind of picked him up like nothing and stuck him in feet first. Didn't seem like he was too careing. Guess it's just a job to him. Aparently the lady that owns him lives around the corner, so I hope they help him. It would piss me right off if I hear he was put down because of expense. I really hope he gets to go home. He really seemed nice. A really big ol true tabby. For being hurt he really was purring, and really seemed to apreciate being helped. Guess the rest is up to God, and the people that took him. I really hope they look after him. Felt so good to do that tho. Really made my night. Wonder if my sponsor would have done something? Hmmmmm...Thank you, Lord.
