My cat chose me

Scarlett on her throne.

Scarlett on her throne.

There she was behind bars.. looking kind of ragged.. she was under nourished but determined to catch my eye. i walked through the dark dungeon of the animal shelter, and stopped in front of her cage. put my finger out and she grabbed it with gentle force letting me know she wanted me. i knew i couldn't leave without her. she was not the best looking kitten but she was very convincing... i said okay you are coming with me. i rescued her that day. (or she saved me, like she does every time i am sad)

13 years later i am well trained and she is a princess of great stature. ruling her kingdom with ease.

meet Princess Scarlett

Princess Scarlett looks almost identical to . . .

Hi Mom,

What do you mean Princess Scarlett "was not the best looking kitten" in the animal shelter . . . I be that she was! But then I am biased because Princess Scarlett looks almost identical to my Mr. Robin :0)

You write that you are well trained, yes our cats do have the knack of training us don't they, getting us to do their bidding :0)

Princess Scarlett is a fine looking cat, I bet that she is glad that she chose you. Thank you very much for sharing your photo and story.

Princess Scarlett's brother Prince Aces

Aces on his throned bed... catching a nap

Aces was the cutest little kitten. i got him from the shelter. he had a terrible head cold with big sniffles. but he was the cutest one in there!
i was so worried about him. when he went to the vet the thermometer was as long as his tiny little body.

now he is 13 and is diabetic. he gets his insulin shots 2 times a day. when it is time he comes out and jumps right up to us and gives us his little butt to poke. he knows the shot makes him feel better.

he has the prettiest green blue eyes...
i love my Scarlett and Aces so much...
Mom

Wonderful eyes.
by: Larry (Editor)

Hi Mom,

Aces has wonderful eyes that seem to say "don't mess with me!" :0)

Sorry to read that the poor fellow has diabetes, but it is obvious that you are taking good care of him and that he is a happy Prince on his throned bed.

Thank you very much for sharing Prince Aces story with us.

Pete, just walked in.

by Dan Adamczyk

This cat chose my home. Standing gazing out the window I heard a distinct "meowww". That cat must be darn close I thought, sounds like it is in the room with me. The second meow told me I was right. The cat was right behind me.

A rather skinny tabby cat was confidently padding his way towards me. He was not the bit bothered about how I might react to his uninvited visit, just walked up and started rubbing himself against my legs.

I stared down at him for a while before deciding that he did not seem to be covered with fleas or anything, and that he was friendly enough to risk stooping down to give him a stroke, I sort of believed all cats scratched. Sure enough, he enjoyed handling.

I took him through to the kitchen where I had left the door open to get a little air blowing through, he had obviously taken the open door to be an open invite. Thinking he may be hungry, he was a skinny runt, I opened a can of mackerel which he did not need any persuasion to consume. This was followed up by a plate of milk.

He had no collar, no tag, but I was sure he must have belonged to somebody and I had been sucker enough to feed somebody's pet. Out the door, door locked up, cat forgotten about. Until the next day, he was back just sitting out there. Don't open the door my senses told me, the cat will be in for more food. Door opened, cat has been here since.

Good cat. Found out he is a he, called him Pete, sort of suits him. I think he has been "done." never smells and doesn't get into fights. He goes out for a spell when he wants, but seems to prefer being crashed out inside. I got him a box which he uses now and then but mostly goes outside, never any accidents. Not quite so much the skinny runt now, he eats most anything I put in front of him.

Good cat, good pet, good that he chose my home to walk into.

Congratulations on your new feline pal.
by: Larry (Editor)

Hi Dan,

Definitely sounds like Pete chose you! :o) Congratulations on your new feline pal, he sounds like a great cat.

Hope you've kitted him out with a collar and tag, you know too well how cats can remain missing without ID.

Thank you very much for sharing your story with us.
