Let me introduce you to John, and D.C. (short for David Copperfield). We have been gone for a couple days, property hunting in southern Colorado. Since we have been home, D.C. hasn’t left John alone. As you can see, he isn’t the smallest of the feline breed. He is also one of the most wonderful cats I have ever known.
We got him, along with his 2 sisters, Maia and Fiona, when they were 6 weeks old. As we were shopping for a wooden flute, we saw a pet store across the street and had to go check it out. Now, keep in mind that we were then renting a home and not allowed to have pets. However, as we walked into this truly lame, tired, needing lots of help, with only 3 kittens in one cage; and 2 birds in another, I heard the following words come out of my mouth, “How much for all 3 kittens?” ?????????? WHAT?!?!?!? I said that????? Yep, I did. John was just looking at me in amazement. But, he knew, as I did, what had just happened. You guessed it, we were guided to that music store on that street that was right across from that pet store that had those 3 kittens. We walked out of that pet store that day with $20.00 worth of kitten purchase in a box.
Things always happen for a reason. We both knew that even though my intent was to “save” the kittens from that horrible pet store, and then find homes for them, they wouldn’t be going anywhere. So, that’s how 2 years ago we connected with our 3 wonderful guides and friends. We are THEIR humans, as it should be. They constantly teach us what we need at that moment. Oh, and D.C. smothers us with love too.
