Samuel and Zoey (a boy and his cat)
My dh told me of this recent conversation he had with Samuel.
Sam: Daddy, do we have to give my kitty away?
Dad: Yes, we already have two cats and a dog, 3 cats is too many. Don't worry, we will find her a good home.
Sam: Ok, Daddy. Will I get to see Zoey again one day in heaven?
Dad: (feeling VERY guilty) Yes, Sam, you can see her again one day in heaven.
Sam: (holding Zoey in his arms) It's ok Zoey, don't cry, one day we will get to see each other again in heaven.
I swear, I had NOTHING to do with this, but guess who gets to keep the kitten! LOLOLOL Samuel walks around holding this kitten constantly, and she is so mild mannered that she lets him pretty much do what he wants with her. Of course, he is very gentle. I explained early on that we cannot hold the cat off the ground by her neck! I guess Chad has noticed how much Samuel loves her, and even though he really didn't want to keep her, he's a good Daddy. I DID try to find her a home, but all of the calls I got either wanted a short haired cat, or an outside cat. I can't just give her away to anyone. I am sure he is gonna be upset again when the time comes to neuter her, he HATES spending large amounts of money on the animals. Lord, please don't let her start tearing up the furniture or peeing in places other than the litterbox?! I don't want any more reasons for dh to regret his decision. So, Miss Zoey gets to stay : D
The pictures were taken the other night. Dh said after Samuel got out of his bath. He grabbed the sleeping kitty off the bed, put her on his chest and passed out. How cute is this?! He lays with her like this all the time while watching tv.
Here is Zoey being mildly naughty, she decided she wanted to sleep in the cabinet where the toilet paper is stored. She had a little fun with it before she took her nap.
Oh, and my little orange elephant now has eyes and his ears where they belong : )
