Funky Friday Love In

In honor of Vampy Vic's birthday, we wanted to tell you my "aaaaaaaaaw" love conquor story.

My best love conquor story was years ago when I first got rescued. I was rescued late on a Wednesday and Thursday night my beans took me to the VET for the first time. That is when they found out I have FIV. My daddy is really allergic to cats but since he loved me right away, he agreed I should stay with them and be an indoor only kitty.

BUT, he made some rules. I would not be allowed on the sofas or on the big bed in their room (and should have limited time in the bedroom to keep the allergies down).
Well, I was rescued on November 4, 2004, and by Dec. 20th was allowed on the sofas. I just had to wear them down! ha ha ha
Daddy is such a softy. I have a picture but our scanner is down and that was before mommy got a digital camera.

As quickly as I was allowed on the sofas, the bed took lots longer. I was NOT allowed in the bedroom and on the bed until May 2005. That day I was really sick and had spent days at the VET with a terrible IBD flair up - my first -and was just miserable.

I'd been put on IVs and gotten shots and poked and temps taken and everything. When mommy brought me home, I made a beeline for the bedroom and hopped up on the bed. She pretended she didn't see me so she wouldn't have to shoo me off.

When daddy got home from work mommy said "be sure to pretend you don't see him so we don't have to shoo him off. He's had such a long day." Instead, daddy laid down with me and we napped together. I've been allowed on the bed ever since!





These are two of mommy's favorite pictures of us.

I hope you enjoyed my story!

Mr. Hendrix, we saw that story over at Vampy Vics and loved it. The pictures make it that much better. We are so glad you rescued your mom and dad from a life without kitties.

It's a beautiful story. You know what, my Nick is allergic to cats, too. His allergies have eased in the six years that we've lived together. Technically, I'm not supposed to sleep on his side of the bed, but my fur doesn't obey those kinds of rules, and neither do I!!!

Forever Foster said...

Mr. Hendrix, that is lovely:) I wasn't allowed on the bed either when I first moved in. By the time Suey came home three weeks later, daddy would come looking for me if I wasn't there!:)

It is also a good idea to rule with an iron paw alongside head nuzzles- keep the minions guessing, I say;)

Gattina said...

Hahaha ! that's typical cat. First the kitchen door, then the kitchen, then the carpet in the living room, then the armchairs and the sofa and then ALL the beds available, there is no spot in the house which a cat wouldn't take over ! (slowly, slowly, they are never in a hurry)

The Crew said...

Good for you, Hendrix. You took over the house in no time and showed them who's boss!!

That's the same way I nap with my Dad.

Cheysuli and gemini said...

Everycat said...

What a sweet story. I'm so glad your Dad is able to nap with you. I think having you around must have helped his allergies ease up.

Have a great weekend!

Max said...

Heh....way to wear them down! When the People first got the Cat Who Came Before Me the Man tried making rules like that, too, but the Woman just laughed and said "Just TRY to keep her off the counters..." Now he realizes everything in the house belongs to the cats.

William said...

And thank you so much for the card! (I was so excited to get mail addressed to me that wasn't from the cat fix-it place!)
