from great sadness...to great joy- meet MIKE!!! love at first sight!
Last November, I blogged about our loss of two of our cats. We had recently adopted Tara, who was the pet of a lovely woman that moved and I was doing her estate sale. Tara was bound for the Humane Society, and we took her in. Soon after that, we lost our dear blue cat Ruby, to cancer. Our huge tabby cat Barney, slipped out of our house late at night and simply disappeared (we lost Ruby and Barney within a week of each other. I spent weeks, almost non-stop, searching everywhere for Barney. No luck. so...my blog stayed quiet until I finally did a small tribute to the pair, and received wonderful messages from many- in person and in blogland.
this last Monday, my son, husband & I took a little trip to the Humane Society. I promised nothing. Was teary at first- every tabby caught my eye, and I really didn't think that I could do it. As I walked up to one of the glass doors, a cat headed my way. Looked at me, stopped at the door, and rolled over to show me his belly. Ah...it was love at first sight!
Mike is home. Tara and Mike are sniffing each other, trying to decide who will be boss (I am sure Mike will be king!)
Mike is not too sure of our 2 dogs. He has taken to "growling" at them, followed by the ever loud HISS!!! I am certain that given time, Mike will break them in!
thought I would share a bit of "personal" news, instead of just store news!
Hope you all have a wonderful, blessed Easter!
