I’ve been meaning to create a post with photos of my darling boys. At long last, here it is. I hope you all enjoy it. I had fun putting it together. Click anywhere in the gallery to see larger photos.
Just a few words about my boys and cats in general….
Once upon a time, in a land, far, far away I met a boy who loved cats. “What am I going to do?” I thought at the time. Give up on the boy, or go with the flow and hope I adjust to cats? Because he certainly wasn’t going to budge, I could see that from the get-go. I was raised with dogs but cats had always liked me so maybe it wouldn’t be so bad. When we moved in together, naturally he wanted to get cats. And I wanted a puppy…….so, we got both! Goldi was our golden retriever, Gold Dust of the Sierras was her registered name. She was wonder dog and a great friend. Bert and Ernie, the kittens we adopted from the humane society, got their names quite by accident. As we were rescuing them from the shelter we were asked what their names would be. Well, we didn’t have much time to think about it so hubby just said “call them Bert and Ernie” and it stuck. So, yes, we had three young pets at the same time. It was fun!! But I wonder if I’d do that again.
Since pets don’t last forever, over the years we had a couple more cats. Clyde was a great friend too, very skittish and would never let Miss M touch him, but he was a sweetie and I loved him dearly. We got Clyde after Bert died. Eddie arrived after Ernie went on to cat heaven to join his pal Bert. And Fritz came on the scene after Clyde passed on. We did not get another dog and as you can see I have turned into a cat person. They are such great companions and friends and I wouldn’t trade them for the world.
