Click to read PUSHOK (FIRST PART)
One cold winter day, Pushok went missing. Concerned, Miriam looked all over for him. “Pushok, Pushok”, she called. At last she heard a faint meowing coming from up the tree next to her. She looked up and at the same time Pushok jumped into safety of her hands. He had wounds all over his body. As he was hunting he was ambushed by a dog that bit him until Pushok barely saved himself in the tree.
Staying home was not an option - Pushok had to hunt to bring in food. This time Miriam would always be by his side. She was carrying a heavy stick at all times and would not hesitate to use it.
Gradually life in the city was improving. The Russian Army had established supply route to Leningrad that led through a frozen Ladoga Lake. Germans bombed it relentlessly but they could no longer break the Road of Life which was the name Leningraders gave it.
