From Sally, here’s the email she sent with her “Pet Pic” attached. Hope your having a wonderful week. – Justin
I caught my two tom cats having a “moment”. Ben decided Barney needed a bath apparently. We live on acreage in the boonies so have a lot of cats dropped off along our road. These two were both abandoned feral kittens about 7 yrs. ago. Naturally I take them in, get them fixed and their shots ~ they in turn keep the mice and critters at bay around the property. These two came to us about 8 mos apart but bonded immediately. Barney & Ben are quite the pair, and were lucky to avoid the animal shelter. Or should I say we’re the lucky ones?
One short funny story about lil’ Ben, a couple years ago one of my neighbors was widowed, so I offered Ben to her for a companion. She took him away in a carrier, in the back of her car, about a mile away. Next morning he was back home at the kibble bowl in the barn. She came and got him again, locked him in her house for several days, next time I looked out here was Ben back. We call him our “Lassie come home kitty”. I don’t know how he found his way, but apparently the bond he has with Barney is pretty strong. We gave up and my neighbor went to the shelter and adopted her own cat. I’ll never try to split these two up again.
