My wife, Norah, and I love animals but living in an apartment and both working meant we were a little skeptical about having pets.
Norah has always loved cats, and to be honest I have always been a dog person, then one day this lady from the house next door to our church comes in carrying this tiny bundle of bones barely held together by skin and fur, its eyes gummed shut and fleas milling all over it. Right then and there I lost my heart to that little thing.
Vera took in an entire kitty family a few years ago where the mama cat just gave birth to a litter of fuzzballs. These squirmy teeny ones couldn’t wait to explore around as soon as their eyes were open.
