King Tut has had my heart from the moment I brought him home. Affectionate, inquisitive, and with stately manners – he is the perfect addition to the family. He simply devours attention and is ready to snuggle or chase his toys anytime. It’s only been four months, but we have already been through a lot together including a transition to a wet diet, many visitors (everyone falls in love with him immediately!), and learning to stay off the dining room table. He even stayed by my side while I was bed-ridden with the flu for three days. While I am away at work, he curls up with my favorite sweatshirt and then greets me at the door when I get home. Without fail he wakes me up each morning before my alarm with a headbutt to the face or a very cautious paw to my cheek. I’m not a morning person at all, but who can be mad when staring into those big, green eyes?!
When my husband and I went looking for a new companion for our 4 year old female cat, our hearts were heavy with the recent loss of our 14 year old male cat to a sudden illness. We knew we wanted our female cat to have another lively companion, but we were both unsure how much room we had in our hearts for a new member of the family. Luckily, we found Roebling (Hootie), and fell in love with his playful, sweet nature immediately. “Roebles” is everything you could want in a teenaged cat- he has a playful, rambunctious, and mischievous nature, which alternates with a surprising sweet and cuddly side. This cat tears around our house causing trouble, making us laugh and smile, and then recovers his energy by sleeping an hour or so in Mommy or Daddy’s arms. His favorite toy is a “My Little Pony” doll- Roebling tosses “Pinkie Pie” around the house constantly. He is definitely a Brony cat. 🙂 After an initially rocky beginning, the two cats are very happy and playful together, and love sleeping near each other. We will always miss our first cat, but the love Roebling gives us has helped us heal from our loss, and taught us that there is always room for more love in your life. We are so very grateful to everyone at KittyKind who helped us become a family. 🙂
