I wanted to give you a glimpse into who I am tonight 💕
This was me and Tabby Christmas Eve, 1999
My life was an absolute mess then. And although I took good care of Taz and Tabby, I surrounded myself with drama and with people who weren’t the best for me or my cats.
I was in active addiction to alcohol in this picture.
June 16, 2000 was the night of my last drunk.
I called the cops to our house, drunk, so that I could get Taz and Tabby and leave my then-boyfriend. We kept fighting and it was scaring the cats. There was NO WAY I was leaving without them with what was going on in that house that night!
I took them and we met my mom at a roach motel that night. The next day we moved temporarily into a house owned by family that we had lived in a couple of years prior.
Then I moved them back into the house I left a few days later.
And THEN to an apartment just three weeks after that! Taz was such a nervous wreck over all of that.
Life got exponentially better for us after that, and I’ve been in recovery ever since!
Even when the then-boyfriend turned husband relapsed and became a heroin addict.
Their lives were full of changes. I kicked their “Daddy Kitten” out in 2005 and got divorced.
Yet they never complained. They rolled with the punches. They were my stability and my reason for going on since I have no kids of my own besides my fur kids.
Taz and Tabby made wherever I lived HOME. They got me through some of the toughest times in my life.
They were my ROCK.
And they loved me unconditionally 😻😻 They will ALWAYS hold that special place in my heart.
And this day, which I thought at the time was the worst day of my life, turned out to be the BEST! ❤️❤️ My name is Robyn. And I am a grateful recovered alcoholic 🙏🙏 #recovery#wedorecover#grateful#recoveredalcoholic#12steps#12steprecovery#10thsteppromises#thankyougod#rewardsofsobriety#beyondyourwildestdreams#tabbycatsofinstagram#tabbylove#tabbycat#tabby#siamesecat#siameselove#chocolatepoint#furbabies#furkids#catmom#catladiesofinstagram#soulmatekitty#soulcat#unconditionallove
