adopted Tristan in early 1991 when he was around 4 months old. He
was the Pet of the Week in the paper and Mom just couldn't resist
him. :) Both of our indoor/outdoor cats had died that past year
(one of kitty AIDS and one was poisoned by our neighbor who gave
him antifreeze). It was time to have another kitty in the house!
gave George to Mom as a birthday present 5 1/2 years later. We conspired
behind Dad's back to get another kitty because we knew he'd be against
it, but we also knew once he was the kitty, he'd love him and be
glad to have him.
George was at a local animal hospital. He had been adopted from
the same place years before by someone who had cancer. She made
them promise that if anything happened to her, they'd take him back
and find a good, loving home for him. Unfortunately she passed away
and George was left without a family. I picked him up on a hot June
day in my crappy car with no air conditioning. I felt awful about
the miserable ride down (I put a towel over the window to keep out
the sun) and he cried the entire time. It was so doggone hot I felt
like crying too! But we made it and I presented him to Mom. As expected,
Dad had a couple choice words about it, but once he held George,
he was all mush. ;) Now George is Dad's buddy and he dotes on him.
:) The picture of Dad holding George and he and Tristan fighting
were from the day I brought him down.
