I was in PetSmart one afternoon to buy gravel for a fishtank and when passing the cat adoption center in the back of the store, a very large black and white American Short-hair put his paw to the window. I was hooked! This twenty-pound gentleman named Leo has been with me for six years now.
I had never pegged myself as a "cat-person." I am glad that I stepped out of that comfort zone and followed my heart. Leo is glad to be part of my family, and I am proud to call him my own.
If Leo could talk, he would say that I'm a pretty good owner but sometimes he has trouble getting me out of bed at 5:30am to feed him.
