Today is the last day of the Cat Lovers Hop AND it’s World Cat Day! What a great time to celebrate kitties! There’s still a little time to play along over at Her Peaceful Garden blog right here: http://herpeacefulgarden.blogspot.com/2016/10/the-2016-cat-lovers-hop-is-here.html
This week, I have shared the adoption stories of our current kitties, Max, Omar and Fuzzie! Today I am introducing you to our senior kitty, Felix!
I adopted Felix and his twin brother Big Max 16 years ago when I lived in Philadelphia! When I was younger and single, I wanted to adopt a kitty, so I went to the Animal Shelter in South Philadelphia. You could look at all the kitties, but you weren’t allowed to touch or play with any of them until your application had been approved and you paid your fees. I saw a big round cage on the floor, and about 8 tiny black kitties were all inside, and it was adorable! But I had spotted an older tortoiseshell cat that I had planned to adopt that Wednesday. When I returned on Friday, she was gone, and all but two of the black kitties were also gone. I decided to take a look and when I opened the cage, which was even with my head, both black kitties raced up to me and snuggled against my neck. I took them both home!
I had Big Max for 10 years, and in April, Felix will be 17 years old. He has been with me through many moves, many boyfriends, and one good husband! Felix loves to sleep – -all day, and it always has to be on a towel or a shirt, or as I found him here, on the Krispy Kreme doughnut box on the counter!
Most of the time though, he likes to sleep in the sun anywhere in my work space!
From our furry family to yours, Happy World Cat Day!
Thanks for joining me today!
Live your life in color!
