In some ways, it seems like only yesterday that Master told me to kneel, and put a metal choke-chain around my neck, telling me that he was going to train me, and make me the kitty he wanted me to be. Yet, in some ways, that also seems like forever and ever ago. Sometimes I feel like my permanent collar has always been a part of me, always locked on, though I know it was not. I forget how much work went into getting this collar. The triumphs, the errors, the mistakes and breakthroughs, the countless tasks…
I pride myself on my good behaviour, but I’m nowhere near perfect, and while I generally strive to do good and be seen as a joy to Master, I know that I’ve had my moments too. I know I’ve failed him before. I know that I will fail him again, but I promise, Master.. I promise to continue to always try the hardest I can. I want to be worthy of you, I want to be your joy when you come home, I want to be the smile that makes you feel better. I want you to know that whatever happens, you can come to me and I will do everything in my power to make it better, because when you’re sad, I’m sad.
I want to thank you for everything you do for me. You take such amazing care of me when I’m ill or injured. You make me always, always want to be a better person than I am. You show me that change takes time, but is so very possible.
I don’t know where the future years will lead us, but, as long as I am following you I know I will be OK.
I love you.
Happy Collaring Anniversary.
