AIKO'S DIARY(NEXT SERIES) Part 5 by Cynthia Abegail
Aiko has tantrums
Now, I realised that Aiko's separation from me has consequences. When I visited her, she run all over the place and would not even look at me.
I was astounded by the drastic change. My cat who was a sweet, gentle cat has turned into a temperamental cat. Tears almost flow from my eyes but I have to face this utter reality.
Instead of my planned 7 weeks before our reunion, I have reduced it to 5 weeks. One day is critical, so I was rushing the awaited transition.
I whisphered to her ear, "Please be patient, " but to no avail and she pouted all the more. I said, "Alright, I am guilty, so I brought you your favourite shrimp and calamari broth." She run to the container as she smells the fascinating and expensive food. Then, I smiled, "Alas, I got your weakness."
I sat on her bed and pondered on her future. How I wish, she will return to good health. My situation is not that rosy at the moment, juggling all my roles as a mother, as a wife, as a faithful worker for the Lord, as a missionary and as a pet attendant. I whisphered, "Never mind, God will make a way."
With great faith in my heart, I know that things will get better. I never doubt God's timing. All will be well for me, my family and for Aiko. Yes, dear folks, one may wonder why I am so concerned about Aiko. Well, we were given pets and we are meant to love them. For animals are God's creatures, too!
