I have two kitties. Minnie & Pepé. Minnie I got right after my husband I got married, and we were living apart (we both accepted jobs three hours apart on the same day! oops) and I wanted a friend. I was looking around Craigslist and I saw this little face looking back at me:
The lady I got her from was actually just cat sitting while HER friend was in Germany (her dad was sick). But the lady I got her from had a baby and Minnie would NOT stay out of the crib, and the baby was allergic to cats (but only really affected because Minnie was in her face).
So she came home with me. We became fast friends. She was my little shadow. She would even shower with me. Well she would sit between the two shower curtains. She slept with me every night.
I always felt like Minnie wanted a friend. So when we moved to Indiana I begged my husband to let us get her one. His moms' best friend is the kind of person that kitties just FLOCK to!! And she had a little boy kitty (I wanted a boy because I know Minnie is dominant) that was three-ish years old.
And I got my little Pepé (yes like Pepé le pew) my husband named him!
Minnie & Pepé did NOT get along at first. But now they are FAST friends! Almost always together. Minnie takes care of her "little" older brother. They love to cuddle and play!
