Prior to this day in 2006, I was a diehard dog person. I had grown up with dogs and always dreamed of getting my first dog. Then Laura called out of the blue, said she was helping a friend move and asked if we wanted her nine year old cat. She described him as big, fluffy and black & white. His name was Max.
Five years ago today marks my entry into the cat world with Max's gotcha day! I had the blessing of sharing two and a half years with him before he crossed the Bridge in May of 2009. I still miss him immensely. He taught me the joy of feline friends. He gave me the gift of opening my heart to the delightful feline world, a gift I will forever cherish.
