Our New Kitty
On a very hot day, three weeks ago, my husband went fishing. He brought home a mess of fish....and a new kitty....here is how the kitty came to us...
On the way home he stopped to look at a fishing hole.
He heard a scratching noise, and meows.
He looked around and found the source of the noise. Some sick person had taped the kitty in a box and left it to die. Our rage at such cruelty has no words.
He let the little black cat out and gave it some water, and it was all over him for attention, very tame, and so glad to be free. He put the cat in the jeep and on the drive home, she curled up on his lap and stayed there until he got out home 40min. later.
I have always had cats, but was enjoying a long break (6yr.now) from having a pet. I wanted to wait until we got moved to get a cat, or dog, or anything, and I was still enjoying being pet free.
I tried to find her a home, no luck, and all the no-kill shelters were full.
After a few days, she had wiggled her way into my/our hearts.
On the way to the vet to get her checked out and shots etc., the commitment was made. I knew I would have to give her a name, Penny came to mind as my husband is always picking up penny's and handing them to me,,,,and a dear friend Penny E. (hi Pen)reminds me of this cats sweet and wacky personality...there it was...and here we are. I have been taking lots of photos of her, but not a good one to share yet. She is around 6mo. old, solid black and as of last weekend,,,,in heat!!! So off to the vet in the morning to save her from her madness and save our sanity, and we really need get some sleep. I also forgot about the litter box,,,,,ick.
So life has been a little busier lately, .....I told Hubby not to bring home anything else, but "fish" next time....copper penny's are OK too.
Smile...I love that man's gentle heart.
PS..the print is one I have had for many years, I guess you can use it in your art, I have never checked it out for copyright,,I have just always loved it,,and thought I'd use it in collage someday. Hey,,maybe tags! Yea,,,,tags,,,I'm off to the copy place!
