Zues didn’t always have that name. (But more on that later) The name given to him by his mama was “Comfort.” You see, Zues was a comfort kitten. He did not use his big ol poly paws to swat his sister or brother, he did not use his big ol poly paws to grab his Mama’s tail. He planted his big ol poly paws on humoms legs each and every time she came into the room. When humom picked up the little wide-eyed kitten he would plant his big ol poly paws on her chest, look her square in the eye and say in his little kitten voice
“I am here for you, and I love you.”
Comfort cat wanted only to love others. His interest lay solely in the attention of humans.
Comfort cat was special, he played gently with his cunning brother, he out smarted his bully sister and he was always, always, the first one to greet humom when she came in the nursery to check on them. Comfort cat needed a special home. Comfort cat needed a home where he could comfort someone. Someone that needed him.
Hmm the possibilities were endless. The second family that called about Comfort cat was a top contender, they had a little girl who wanted more than anything to have a kitten for Christmas. They were a lovely family, but in the end…they didn’t need Comfort cat. Comfort cat had to go to a very special home.
Humom was quite pleased with herself for holding out for the perfect home for each of the kittens, especially Comfort cat ~ oops ~ I mean the Mighty Zues!
Zues loved his new role, he was anxiously awaiting the day he got to meet his own boy that would love him and he would be able to comfort the boy when needed. Zues was pleased.
The bully Spectress swatted Zues right in the eye! Zues squinted, Zues meowed…Zues smacked her back! Spectress showed her remorse by attacking Lorenzo. Humom did the right thing and attended to the right eye of Zues immediately, administering a triple antibiotic ointment to his little eye. Looking, very, very closely, humom could see the two, very tiny scratches on the eye of Zues. Ah well, no matter, Zues snuggled down with his Mama Spooky, who licked his head, and Zues kicked his Sister, who meowed at him in complaint and Zues swatted Lorenzo who then jumped on his Sisters head. Yep, all is well in Highlander land.
Humom continued to administer the ointment to the eye of Zues, and took him to the Veterinarian for a checkup as well. The veterinarian peered closely at the eye of Zues (who purred up at her happily) and pronounced his eye as healing quite well. She even commented on his good behavior whilst she did her exam on him. Zues purred happily at the attention. Zues was happy to comfort the gentle vet and the smiling humom. He was so excited to meet his new boy!
….you see, when humom told the Mother of the boy about the eye of Zues, and sent a picture to show off to the Mother how very well the eye was healing and how very happy he was at the Veterinarians office…the Mother of the boy changed her mind. She said she no longer wanted Zues for her boy, not with an injured eye! Without a boy, the mighty Zues, no longer had his name, you see the name that comes from your special human is given to you straight from the heart. Zues could no longer be called Zues by a human that would no longer be his.
“I am here for you, and I love you.”
