I took “Miss 3″ to our local shopping center, which inevitably has a pet shop right inside the main doors, which of course has the cages with all the cute little kittens and puppies, which naturally we walked past right at the time they were taking the kittens out to clean their cages. Miss 3 runs up to the lady and asks to hold the kitten, after alot of explaining how to be gentle and how to hold a kitten Miss 3 is handed the kitten.. After copious amounts of “oohing and ahhing, hugs and kisses” it is time to hand back the kitten..
The bottom lip drops, the eyes well with tears and my heart breaks at the words “But she needs to live with us for pats and hugs, you love me but who will love her, please dont let her live in the bird cage forever”
Needless to say Miss Kitty (now 1 year old) is now the queen of our house, and has a loyal and dedicated servant (yes I say servant) in Miss (now) 4, every time I look at her I remember Little Miss’s eyes filling with tears at the thought of the kitten living in a cage, and thank my lucky stars she is such a loving little soul!
Moral of the story .. NEVER enter the shops via the entrance with the pet shops! (lol)
