It’s no secret that I have always loved cats, and most of my life have shared a home with at least one cat. Most recently, I was a contented 3-cat household. After having 2 cats for much of my adult life, I had to make the difficult decision a couple years ago to have my sweet Claudette euthanized due to old age and declining health.
Mr. Bud and I were doing OK, but both missed Claudette. I thought long and hard about the best way to integrate another cat into the household and after speaking with fellow cat-lovers, decided to bring two kittens into the mix. The kittens, I was told, would spend a lot of their energy playing with each other, hopefully giving Mr. Bud some time and space to adjust.
Thus, Arlo and Coco joined us last summer, and while there was certainly an adjustment period, within several weeks, all three cats were getting along swimmingly.
And everything was going along just dandy. But sometimes, life has other plans for us. Around mid-September this year, someone dropped off a kitten here at the warehouse. Well, I can’t leave a stray out to brave the elements, even one that was a little wild and unsocialized. I kept him in the warehouse until I could get him into the vet's office to be checked out and vaccinated, so that I could then find a loving home for him. Of course, by the time that all happened, I had fallen in love with him and he had become much more sociable and friendly. After having his vaccinations and being given a clean bill of health by the vet, we made the transition into the house. We call him Itty Bitty Kitty for now, and he is making friends with the others. He is especially smitten with Arlo and that is the story of how I officially became a “Crazy Cat Lady.”
That’s right, it’s that spooky, mysterious, chill-in-the-air month of October; the one we will wave goodbye to by celebrating All Hallows’ Eve…otherwise known as Halloween. Whether you are taking your children door-to-door in your neighborhood to Trick or Treat, staying home to hand out candy or attending a festive cocktail party, chances are you’ll celebrate Halloween in some way. Young or old, or somewhere in between, the holiday allows you to have a little fun with masks, make-up and costumes.
