My husband and I were looking online for a playmate for Cassie. We were on the rescue website where we had found her originally and I saw this handsome face. I knew he and Cassie would be a perfect match!
How Cats Changed Me Forever.
About 1 1/2 years ago, my good friend had too many kittens and needed to find them homes.
We were hanging out one day and I used her restroom, where 6 kittens were being raised. They were still in there, as they were 4 weeks old. I came out and made a comment that she had too many cats in the bathroom and I almost stepped on them.
She asked me which one I liked and I told her the tiny black runt.
(Not knowing what she was trying to do)...
She then said, "Why don't you take him then?"
"HECK NO", I said.
"I hate cats".
And besides I was not prepared for one.
She handed me some food and litter, and told me to take him.
I didn't really agree, but took him home anyway.
I never thought he would live because he was so young.
Well, "King Oreo" is now 1 year and 3 months and the love of my life. He loves me and I love that cat more than anything in the world.
People really can change.
My kitten who would disappear...

We got "Runjhun" from an aunt's place.(In India, all women friends of our moms' are called aunties :)) SO one fine day when mom & I were visiting one such aunt,I came across a litter of kittens her cat had delivered some time back.
I begged my mum if I could keep one & she agreed! Cats ( & kittens)have an uncanny knack of remembering roads & routes & can return to places they want to be. So we wrapped her loosely in some fabric & brought her home.
Runjhun grew up to be a wonderful pet.He would snuggle up with Grandpa in his quilt. He loved the blankets & would roll in them, often getting trapped in them, when they were folded & put away after a nap!
On the 1st such occasion, my brother & I were really worried & searched for her far & wide, before finally finding her at night when our beds were being laid out :)
We had endless playing sessions with runjhun, she was a lazybum who wouldn't want to move at all.
Then one day, she went away.. maybe she was surveying the neighbourhood & someone's dog got her, maybe someone kept her, who knows... We missed her terribly & still talk of her fondly.She was one of our best childhood memories.
