AIKO'S DIARY (NEXT SERIES) Part 6 by Cynthia Abegail
Aiko's Stroll in the Park
Today is one of those beautiful days: with some sunlight but not too hot. It is one of those days where you could walk briskly but not perspire!
Aiko and I strolled by the park in the West. It is a park overlooking a hill, so green and clean. Well, I decided to walk with her for a longer period of time to make a path for our reconciliation! A beautiful thing! I know of reconciliation between people but does it sound a bit new?
I saw a sparkle in Aiko's eyes especially when she saw a peach coloured cat with a fluffy hair. She approached her as if to say "Hi!" The peachy cat responded with a loud Meow and they seem to understand each other. After that, we went to a man-made spring with flowing water. She rushed to the water and drank like a thirsty camel. Then, we walked again and we are developing a great bond again. I felt a surge of joy in my heart.
We are on our way back home when suddenly I heard barking of a dog. Aiko became afraid because it is a big Doberman. I rushed to embrace her and quickly brought her to the car. Then, she was so curious on looking at the big, scary dog from afar. I drove her back home to my son's house and I almost could not leave. I composed myself and I am resolved to fulfill my promise of getting her back in about 5 weeks. I bid goodbye but this time she is not sad anymore. She seems to have accepted our agreement.
I am back to normal work routine but I plan to do shopping in the afternoon. I will buy Aiko additional scratching posts and a cat cave. Well folks, that's the role of a pet carer. With some compassion and mutual understanding, we are getting there slowly.
Thanks Lord for giving us pets to care and to cherish!
