Not everyone is a cat lover….and yet, I believe there is a feline out there that can change a nay-sayers position of how they feel about cats, they just have to encounter it and keep an open mind! I will be forthright, I used to be terrified of kitties, I didn’t trust them one tiny iota. I had experienced too many scratches and what I would have considered ‘shifty’ behaviour to want to share my space with one. And then along came Samantha, a wee homeless waif that softened my stance and was my friend for sixteen years! She opened the door for Missy, Smokey, Holly, Romeo and Savannah, not to mention all my clients whom I adore! I have numerous canine friends who aren’t fond of cats either and yet, I have found that our Romeo is able to worm his way into the affections of every dog I have been told that “dislikes” felines. He is ‘that’ cat, he can change the thinking of the majority of haters and staunch puss protesters, whether they be human or of the four legged variety! It is so cool to see some of my clientele that are reticent when they meet Romeo metamorphosize into part of his fan club! This morning as I watched Sam and Romeo snuggle with one another my heart felt like it was going to explode, they have a mutual bromance! Romeo could be a feline Ambassador for cat dissenters! He reminds me that keeping an open mind is truly the way we should all conduct our lives, you never know when you are going to encounter your new best friend!
