I absolutely love my cat! He is as much a part of the family as anyone. My cat is what I like to refer to as a “pound puppy”. We got him from a shelter when he was about 7 weeks old.

He was so tiny he only weighed about a pound and could not even eat solid food! He was my first “out of the cage” animal, so I did not know what to expect.

It was a shock to me to see just how energetic kittens are, but after those initial growing pains, it was great! I lived alone when I first get my cat (I have since gotten married) and we were inseparable.

I used to go home at lunch everyday to spend time with him and he would lick my lunch bowl when I was done. He also used to suck on his tail when he was a baby. I never quite figured out why he would do that, but it was so cute!

My cat is now almost five, but he still thinks he is a kitten. He will stand in front of the bedroom door and cry if only myself or my husband has woken up for the day and the other is sleeping.

He also comes running when we call him, which we get a kick out of. Our cat is definitely like a child to us and we would not trade him in for anything!
