So we're walking through rooms and rooms of cats and kittens to see if one gives us the "vibe". I was looking for a girl-cat since that's all I'd ever had, Allen was a little more open-minded but I was set and determined to have a little girl. There were some beautiful girl cats there but none of them seemed a good match for us, then we walked into another room of cages and beds and the first thing we noticed was a peaches and cream cat lying in one of the deep windowsills. We noticed him because the second we walked in the room he stood up with a trill and jumped down from the window to run over to us and start rubbing all over our legs. I didn't know what to think at first, this cat was not a girl, was not particularly beautiful and didn't seem to have anything attractive about him, but he would not stop purring and couldn't have been any sweeter. Once I picked him up the decision was made... kitty love. So we wrote the check and brought him home! We decided to name him Bugs Bunny, but we just call him "Bugs"... it sounds weird when you tell people what your cat's name is but we liked it :).
Let me tell you, that cat did not stop purring the entire first month he was with us, I think he purred through his sleep! There was a point where I was hearing the buzz even when I wasn't home, it gets in your head after a while.
He has all the personality and curiosity of a cat with all the affection and attitude of a dog.
I. love. him.
He's the sweetest, friendliest little one there ever was and he has brought us nothing but joy (punctuated with small moments of crashing and shouting). It's amazing how much pets can add to your life!
