The following story was submitted by Howard through email:
Sadie got here into our lives 11 years in the past.
My spouse, who grew up round cats, wished to get our daughters two kittens. I didn’t develop up with cats and although I used to be superb with the choice to get kittens, I used to be not notably smitten by having them in our house and caring for them.
We went to an area cat shelter and since one in all my daughters didn’t take effectively to the craziness of kittens, they advised an older rescue cat. My spouse and daughters gravitated in the direction of Sadie – a fluffy mixture of tabby, Maine coon and who is aware of what else.
She was someplace between 1-3 years previous and really shy. I used to be not enthralled – the shelter even had some reservations about our adoption of Sadie since they didn’t really feel “everybody was on board” with the choice (i.e., me).
Once house, Sadie step by step got here out of our shell and guess who she preferred finest? Yes, the person who was not on board grew to become her favourite human – and by some means she turned me round and now we have bonded ever since.
I’m now a full-fledged cat dad and might’t think about life with out Sadie!
