My husbands family had dogs, goats, alligators, snakes, turtles, spiders, lizards and not one CAT!
Since we have been married, we had a few dogs here and there, but we were always moving with the military or living in small homes, so we were always giving them a better more stable home...until our Lacey was born and lived with us, shared our life, made us better people for over 11 years and then she passed on. A wonderful boxer lab mix who was amazing! But, no cats for our house...
Not until Kasey the kitty. Kasey came into our life the way many things do...just by chance or the Grace of God...I am not sure which. Kasey mom is a feral cat that my boss has fed for over a year so it wouldn't starve and then....it had kitties in her yard and kept them there...well, every once in awhile, it would take them all somewhere else, but always brought them back!
When we were visiting one day the oldest grand sat down in the yard and this little bitty kitty came up to her and snuggled right into her neck...it was of course love at first touch and she went home and talked her Papa into it. Of course it is her Ranny who had to buy all the cat supplies, will pay the vet bills, etc.
When we first brought Kasey home, it (not sure boy or girl yet) hid between the wall and the dresser and finally, I pushed the dresser against the wall...after all, we want a pet, not a cat that is afraid of everyone! But here Kasey is, hiding in the very back of the hole!
My grands are very stubborn and they were not about to let their cat be afraid of them, so they found some cat toys and a few hours later, here is Kasey playing with its ball on a spool of yarn toy.
Tonight everytime my oldest grand moved to far away, Kasey would cry and cry...I believe he thinks she is his momma.
Anyway, these pictures were to cute to keep to myself!
