I had just been discharged from the hospital when the little kitten came into my life. Her name was Marble. She was a fluffy multicoloured little thing.
I adopted her upon the urging of the nurses that I needed to get a therapy animal to help me cope with the illness.
Marble and I bonded so close. I think she was actually a human soul in a cat's body.
I'd choose relapsing on cancer any day over having to watch her die in my arms after being struck by a car again.
