Few weeks ago I’ve been asked by my mom’s cousins to take care of their vegetable garden while they were on vacation. It happens every year, and I’m always happy to accept the task, because I don’t own a garden/back yard/slice of soil even if I live in countryside. This year I received an additional task: doing the cat-sitter to their new kitten.
Mia is a lovely little girl who loves playing with little branches full of leaves. She was very shy at the beginning of the last week, but she quickly started to enjoy my presence in her garden. We spent several hours together, above all during the afternoons, while I studied and she enjoyed the warm Summer sun purring all the time.
Unfortunately our time together is finished, and I’m going to miss her so much. I hope to baby-sit her again next year and that she’ll remind me.
