Thankful November 12: My Cats
When my parents separated, we decided as a family that adopting a cat might be a nice addition to the household. My mom found Franki through an internal Craigslist-like database at her hospital, and before we knew it, this strange, moaning, goofy creature entered our life. It wasn't exactly the smoothest transition (he spent 36 hours inside of our walls his first weekend), but when we began feeding him delightful humanfood, he learned to love us. And he is one of the strangest animals I have ever had the pleasure of loving.
Rusty arrived just six months later, and again, took his time finding his role in the household. But the two cats have totally fallen in to a routine of fighting, playing, sleeping, eating, and just being weird Siamese cats - I can't imagine life without them.
