Nissy was what she liked to be called. She was an 85-year-old widow, who lived in a small white restored chapel not far from the sea.
She had 3 fat lazy cats that kept her company when her 12 grandchildren were not visiting. They all lived close by.
Nissy was a gentle, determine, strong and a independent women that was not afraid to be alone, besides she had been that way since Ralph passes away from an accident in the mines over 30 years ago. 
The people at the village often referred her as ‘the old women with the green thumb’, because what ever she planted grew. Nissy would put plants anywhere, disregarding how high they would grow and her garden always looked unkempt and wild because of it. Her reason for it was that she wanted her cats to feel free.
When the grandchildren visited she would load them up with vegetables from her small garden and any fruit from her trees when in season. 
Overtime the children reported back to their parents that Nissy seamed to be loosing weight and believed she was feeding the cats better then herself, as they saw more food in the fridge for the cats then for herself.
The family new full well what her cats meant to her, so they rallied around and had a family meeting. It was agreed that a roster be planned in order to ensure Nissy was eating. So each time a grandchild visited they would take a small plate of food. Such as, a baked pie or a small casserole, a home made desert which they knew she would not refuse, or a small plate of dried fruit and nuts.
Then on every weekend a parent would take it in turns to have her at their home for a family gathering and a meal. 
Nissey never realized what was going on, she believed that she was loved and that her grandchildren cherished her, which was absolutely true.
