Welcome to my tribute to Meow Monday. If you don’t know what that is, I’m happy to enlighten you! Meow Monday is a post that one of my favorite favorite favorite food bloggers posts over on her page every Monday, and it’s also one I look forward to. If you haven’t seen it, you really should go check out Stephanie’s blog, Plain Chicken, and not just for the cats, but check out her recipes while you’re there! I’ve made quite a few and they never disappoint. Before you go though, I’d like you to meet Steve!
Monday’s are such a mess for me. Normally I’m rushed all day mostly grocery shopping, and then getting home in time for hungry kids looking for dinner. When it finally comes time to relax, or if you need a laugh, or both, this cat is ready to provide!
Steve is a rescued kitty, and only about a year old. So he’s got a lot of foolishness in him. Not just foolishness though, he’s very lovable. He loves being picked up and cuddled. Steve had a very rough start to life. When he was just a baby kitten, he was found by our Veterinarian’s mom, who rescues animals. Poor Steve had a broken back leg. Although he was going to mend and be good as new, he still didn’t have a home.
My family and I had just lost a beautiful all black kitty we named Schrodinger. We unfortunately had to make a tough decision to have her put down because she had cancer and we had exhausted all avenues of helping her get better. Needless to say we were all devastated. It was just shy of her 2nd birthday. Seemed quite unfair. But not long afterwards, our Veterinarian called us about Steve. We were happy to take him in as soon as he was able to go to his forever home.
As you can see, he made himself quite at home, on any surface he felt necessary. Don’t worry, I always wipe down counters and the table before preparing food or serving food. LOL You never know where Steve has been!
Also, as you can see, Steve is always ready to provide some laughs. Due to his having a broken leg when he was real young, he seems to still favor that one leg, and because of this, well, this is how he sits.
Always providing us with plenty of laughs, annoying the dog (Fritz) as well as the other kitty (Patches), and always ready cuddle and purr. Steve is a real gem of the household.
