Our Shadow is a beautiful cat that our son, in his senior year of high school, brought home from a football game. He found the kitten in the rim of a tire on the road behind the school. Shadow couldn’t have been more than 8 weeks old. My husband detests cats, no…really! I mean he has always said they are only good for footballs….ummm and no he would never do that! He is all talk, trust me! But that gives you an idea what he thinks of cats. So to get back to my son bringing the kitten home, well he didn’t exactly tell us about the cat, I walked in his room to wake him for school and there, under the blankets, at his feet came popping out this tiny black kitten! Soooooo cute! My sons plan was working perfectly; I fell in love immediately! But there was still
grumpy old man….I mean, his dad to contend with! So of course I told him to keep the kitten hidden and I would spring it on his dad later. I told the kids we would just bring the kitten into the house, name him, feed him, and refuse to give him away! I told the kids after a while this kitten would wear their dad down!
So, yeah, 15 years later and it has worked! I knew I was right! My husband and this cat are best buds! They love each other….and the cat is no longer a football in my husbands eyes! Other cats are….just not his cat.
***The fact that I know my husband is reading this is the icing on the cake of my day! 😉
