A Family of Three

She had been thinking about adopting a pet but had yet to stop and see what they had at the local animal shelter.  On a whim she turned down Fifth street to stop in and look.

Stepping into the office she saw a basset hound sleeping on a pillow in the corner.  She approached the receptionist who was petting a tabby cat behind the desk.  “Can I see the cats for adoption?”

“Certainly, we are at capacity for cats.  We need to make room.  Were you looking for a cat or a kitten?  We have a pair of adorable siblings that are 3 years old that have surmounted a lot of past abuse to becomes some of the gentlest cats I have ever seen.”

“Can I see them?”

“Sure, follow me.”

They walked down a hallway into a large room full with cages of cats and kittens.  “Here we are.  The tuxedo cat is Mr. Tennison and his sister is Emily.”

Falling in love instantly with the way the two of them were cuddled up next to each she was sold.  And within twenty minutes the cats were on the way home with her.

    1. Just a desire to get a second cat… I want one that will snuggle with me again. Our cat now is definitely the boyfriend’s, she has him wrapped around her paw!
