We had two sweet adult cats. Doc (who is 3) and Gizzie (who is 1).
We told our children that there will be no more cats in this house. Doc would have to be good enough because we aren't getting anymore. We couldn't stand the heartache of loosing another kitty.
We looked for days for our sweet Gizzie but couldn't find her anywhere outside.
Many people told us that she would come back...they were sure of it. We didn't believe them...
Hubby and I took the kids school shopping on tax free weekend. We told the kids if they were good that we would go to the pet store and look at the guinea pigs, and snakes, and fish, etc. (Notice that I said nothing about cats there.) ;)
Well.... when we got to Pet Smart they were having a free adoption day. Oh, adoption of what you ask? Adoption of KITTY CATS. They were free, fixed, micro-chipped, and up to date on shots. The kids begged to go in and look at them and hold them. We said, "Okay but we aren't getting one." Well... we decided to let them get ONE. They told us that the one we picked out had a brother and the kids wanted them to be together. UGH! Okay fine. We agreed to take both and hoped that Doc wouldn't be too mad at us for bringing two kittens home. We brought home a girl kitty named Wheelie and a boy kitty named Chess.
Doc wasn't very happy with us when we brought that box home with two kittens. He would have nothing to do with them for a few days but then he started to play with them and tolerate them okay. Our hearts started to heal some from the loss of our sweet Gizzie.
Bet you can't guess what happened next.....
Last week I took the kids to the bus stop and we heard a cat meowing. We figured out that it was coming from under the house. The kids were so excited and wanted me to go under the house and was sure it was Gizzie. I put them on the bus and then went under the house with the flashlight on my phone (it is SOOO creepy under there!!!) and sure enough.... Gizzie came running. It was her, and I was in complete and utter shock. And then it hit me.... WE HAVE FOUR CATS!!
What were we do to? We love Doc and Gizzie and we had fallen in love with the kittens. We couldn't get rid of any of them. I went to the store and bought another litter box and an extra food bowl and more litter. All week I have been saying at random times... WE HAVE FOUR CATS. I AM THE CRAZY CAT LADY. I think it is now time for me to go and buy some cat earrings, cat sweaters, cat pjs, and other random crazy cat lady things...
Anyone have some cat slippers I can borrow?
