I love pets. When we were young we had every type of animal imaginable. But, when Mike and I started out we lived in an apartment that had a huge pet deposit. Shortly after we moved to a small house I begged Mike for a pet. Finally, he conceded and we went to the local animal shelter. We were in search of a little kitten.
They had a lot to choose from that day, and I ended near a kennel with about eight inside. I love calico kitties and saw the sweetest little one. I picked her up and she was the cutest little cuddly thing. I should have run out of there with that little one and made for home, but I didn't. This was my error.
What I didn't realize is that this playful, energetic kitten was sick! He had a severe respiratory infection. A little antibiotics cleared that right up, but then, he was up and about and I found out what I'd gotten myself into! I was now the proud owner of the most crazy cat on the planet. His energy level: sky high!
