The Cat Who Just Wouldn't Go Away

This is a bit of a strange story from Lucy about a cat who just wouldn't go away.

"About four years ago I was living a few miles away from my parent's home. They had recently bought the house and with it came a cat, with different coloured eyes, that just wouldn't go away. We presumed she must have belonged to the previous owner.

As my mother is allergic to cats, they make her sneeze and itch, we tried everything to get this cat to go away.

In desperation, I'm now ashamed to say, I took the cat in my car, while on my way to work, and dropped it off about ten miles away. I can remember looking in my mirror and seeing the cat standing there looking at me as I drove away. It now send shivers down my spine thinking I could ever have done such a thing.

Anyway, it's what I did and I went on to work. That night I had a bizarre dream.

I dreamt that I was lying on the lounge floor and the cat came through the front door. She came up to, me while making a loud hissing noise, as she stared at me with those two strange eyes. It was a really clear dream which I put down to a mixture of guilt and my using nicotine patches to try and give up smoking, they seemed to make my dreams very vivid.

Three days later I was lying on the lounge floor, for real, and the cat came in through my slightly ajar front door!

It quite freaked me out. I was waiting for her to hiss at me or attack me but she didn't. She came up to me purring and looked like she was really pleased to see me.

I can't figure this out as the cat had never been to my house before. It was my parent's home she wouldn't leave. Maybe her sense of smell led her the ten or so miles to my car and house, I just don't know. Maybe it was a coincidence.

Trixie, however, is now living happily with me and me with her. We get on well and I've said 'sorry' for dumping her all of those miles away. I don't know why I didn't just take her to my house in the first place. When my mother comes to visit I make sure the cat is in another room.

I don't know what all of this means, maybe it is some sort of lesson for me."

  4. This is some spooky story! The cat and Lucy were obviously meant to be together. The cat was certainly relentless!

  6. I understand what you were feeling with the cat. I became so irritated by a cat that wouldn't go away that I told my daughter to write about it during a period when she was writing stories. The book was published January 19. 2018, "The Cat That Wouldn't Go Away".
