When I was in elementary school, I kept asking my parents for a cat. One day my Dad came home with a sweet little back kitty! My love of cats began and has never ended.
I don't have many photos of this beautiful girl but she was my pet for many years. She passed away after I had left home and I cried so much when my Mom told me.
Yes my first cat was named Tiger! Why would you name a black cat Tiger? She walked like a Tiger my Dad said and it stuck. She had one litter of kittens before we got her fixed and we kept one who we named Tuffy! This sweet girl will always have a special place in my heart!
My next cat was a pretty little girl named Muffin!
She was an indoor cat, but got out somehow and was lost and never found. I cried so much!
I took a break from owning a cat for awhile.
After marrying and having children we wanted animals but Sara was (and is) highly allergic to cats and dogs. We had a couple of outdoor animals and one was this adorable cat named Star!
Sara called her 'Star Baby'
Star met the end like so many other outdoor cats when they tangle with a car. We buried her in our yard and I said no more outdoor cats.
So many years later (after Sara is out on her own) I find and bring home this cute fellow
This sweet boy has been with me for 16 years and is such a good cat. I love him very much!
He hates to be picked up and held, but since today is Hug Your Cat Day...I did and we both survived!
I'm sharing this at Alphabe-Thursday
Wishing you Joy,
