One of the great joys of my life has been being a cat owner. We’ve had many beautiful felines. There was Noah, Zeke, Phydgyt, Samson, Boots, Boris… Now we have Salem and Smokey. These two allow us to live in their home as long as we feed them, keep them warm, pay their medical bills, provide prime sleeping spots, and keep them safe from that mean neighbor cat Sammy.
With that said let me add that I met two cats in a book called Kit Kat & Lucy by Lonnie Hull DuPont that reminded me so much of Smokey and Salem that I thought I was reading about them. I laughed! (Yes, a mouse dropping from the ceiling is rather humorous.) I cried! I loved the book!
Do you want to know how cats acclimate to one another? It’s here.
Do you want proof that cats help their owners in high-stress situations? It’s here.
How about cats knowing when their humans are ill or depressed? Yep, It’s here.
Kit Kat’s life story is a delight. She determined to live with her humans and even though they didn’t know it at the time she was going to stay no matter what transpired. Her owners decided they just couldn’t have a cat and took her to live on another farm close by. Kit Kat walked 8 miles to return to her chosen home and that begins the adventure. Eventually, another cat comes to the door on a windy, cold, Michigan night and whether Lonnie and Joe liked it or not Lucy had found her forever home.
This delightful story of two accidental cat owners and their furry felines is worth the read whether you’re a cat person or not. It’s full of stories and anecdotes that every pet owner can relate to.
Blessings to you and yours!

Hi Linda! I love pet stories. Animals do seem to understand one another and eventually become good friends.
