The morning after, I found myself feeling violated, rejected and alone. I didn't know where I was. My head wasn't the only thing that didn't feel right. I waited for that handsome stranger who referred to himself as T.O.M to return with breakfast. He never did. I waited patiently for weeks. Other kitties talked about me behind my back as they noticed my belly was getting bigger. I didn't know why that was happening when I was hardly finding food. The once plentiful dumpster buffet was a last hoorah as the restaurant had closed that night. I was now labelled as a homeless unwanted stray. I was pregnant and a statistic. I was mistreated and judged everywhere I went and by everyone. I ended up giving birth to 6 of T.O.M's kids. That x*&%;**!!!! I felt so used and so incredibly stupid for believing something I saw on the internet.
Then one day as I was doing my best to make my bony body produce milk to feed my hungry boys, a kind lady approached me. She was different from the rest. She was gentle, talked softly and gave me some food. She let me eat and sniff her while she asked me if I would trust her to take me and my babies to a safe, quiet place where we would have food and a nice clean bed. For reals? YES MA'AM PLEASE!!!
Finally, I was safe and started to feel better. She even helped feed my babies who were down to three. It was so wonderful to be back inside and safe again. It was so scary out there. I certainly learned my lesson about internet dating.
That was a few months ago. Now, my boys have grown up and I have been spayed, vaccinated, dewormed, and microchipped. I was even snap combo tested to make sure that T.O.M. didn't give me anything, and am relieved to know that I am FIV/FeVL negative and so are my kids.
I am still a very sweet, loving young petite girl (I'm only about 18 months old, but please don't judge me, others are as young as 4 months old when they start having hooking up) I no longer have the need for any T.O.M. in my life so I am looking for a wonder forever human who will always take good care of me and won't ever let me be hungry, scared and make sure that I am not lonely so that I will never have the need to be on the internet ever again. I have beautiful huge emerald eyes (apparently, that's what got me in trouble in the first place with T.O.M.).
My name is Rio. This is my story. I may have Bengal descent but I never got a chance to get on ancestry.com to do a DNA request. But, I do know that I am genuinely awesome and deserve the chance to have a home. Could we be roommates? I can't pay the rent but I sure can pay you all the respect in the world for making my life worth living again. Please consider loving me forever unlike T.O.M :(
