Annabelle is the mother of Lilith(I) and Lilith(II). Her death is tragic, I cannot comprehend the pain that she was in. In the mid of one night, late in December 2017. it was a night before the new year kicked in.
I hear a lengthy angry cat voice from a distance from where I sleep, it is so disturbing, my sixth sense echoed to my unconscious mind that something is happening, something that will alter my life and the life of Annabelle forever.
It is the sound of an angry and fighting Annabelle being attacked with a flock of dogs that had made the decision to kill and tear Annabelle apart, with their deadly teeth and strong jaws overpowering Annabelle.
By the agony in her voice, you could tell that she was putting up a fight against this cold creature that came to take her life and dismantle her.
I couldn’t map out where she was at the moment, if wishes were cats then I could ride on them to save Annabelle who needs more of my hand in this situation now than ever before in her life.
The stray dogs took the advantage of the small fighting cat and shredded her into pieces.
Early in the morning, a neighbor knocked on my door and since He used to know Annabelle well as one of my cats he brought the sad news to me. Pain filled my heart, anguish never ended, shock numbed me, not even wanting to believe what the neighbor came to tell me about the remains of my cat. I for once wanted to make him responsible for what just happened but I remembered the saying, Don’t kill the messenger.
Tears filled my eyes, I broke down internally and psychologically, I understand it was not the fault of the dogs, they did not plan it, or premeditate the killings.
I felt alone, she left a young kitten whom I named Lilith(II), I had now to be her parent and guardian. The promise that I will keep to Annabelle is to keep her generation continuing until I die.
Annabelle’s death was rerecorded to be on 31st December2017, the same month her daughter was born.
I WILL KEEP YOU ALIVE THROUGH MEMORIES AND THE GENERATIONS THAT YOU HAVE LEFT BEHIND FOR ME TO TAKE CARE OF.
YOU ARE FOREVER IN MY HEART AND MIND ANNABELLE.
