Today is National Cat Day! This day is all about spreading encouragement to adopt cats! I don’t know about you guys but I know that our local shelter always has an abundance of cats looking for a special family to take them home! In March 2012, my husband and I adopted our first cat together from our local animal shelter. Nika (originally named Edda) was 6 months old when we got her and she definitely had an interesting personality. We instantly fell in love with her. She loves mac ‘n cheese and popcorn and is fierce when it comes to play time.
A few months later we decided that she needed a playmate for the hours when we were away at work. So we went back to the shelter and found our little Enzo. He was 4 months old and the cutest, feistiest little kitten we had ever seen. He loves ANY kind of food so after several destroyed loaves of bread and boxes of crackers, we learned we couldn’t leave any food on the counters.
Now you may be wondering why I am posting about cats on my blog…. Well, let me tell you. Cats are the perfect reading companion! In the winter, they love snuggling up and make the perfect lap warmer. When you get new books, they are the perfect bookstagram accessory. And sometimes they will even keep you company while you blog! I never thought I would become a cat person because I actually used to be scared of cats when I was growing up. But now I couldn’t imagine my life without these two furballs! If you have ever thought about owning a pet or even if it is a new idea, I urge you to visit your local animal shelters and adopt a cat!
