So every week, I write the copy for the OSPCA Pet of the Week ad in our local paper, The Glengarry News. Recently, the paper started finding sponsors for the weekly feature. This week, Gordon sponsored the ad...
...and it featured a grey kitten. Now, I don't pick the pet. A worker at the shelter named Sophie does. Each week, she tells me everything she knows about the pet to be featured, and I do a write-up from that. She just happened to pick little Louise this week.
And here's the thing: Gordon LOVES grey cats. Our first cat together was a beauty named Mashka. We adopted her in 1995 when she was three years old, then sadly lost her in 2006 to kidney failure. She was a lovely girl...
So what do you think happened when Mr. Softie saw that his sponsored ad featured a grey kitten that had been stuck in a cage at the shelter since arrived almost three months earlier?
What do you think happened when he was wife said, "We should adopt her! You need another grey cat!"
Yup. Louise is coming home to us next week after her spay. Because if you have four cats, why not five?
Bwahahahahaha. It was way too easy this time. Gordon cracked in 30 seconds.
I visited Louise at the shelter yesterday. I would have taken photos but my iPhone battery died. She is bigger than in the ad photo now, bigger than Naomi already and about as big as Emily, so I think she'll be a large cat. I held her for almost half an hour while I chatted with Sophie, and Louise purred the whole time. She is just so sweet.
We are going to visit her again this Saturday. I'll take photos!
