Three Little Kittens
Sometimes we like to shake things up here at Happy Tails HQ and feature adoption stories from beyond our hometown of NYC. This week, we’re bringing the cuteness with a true story straight from the great state of Illinois. It stars three little kittens, Sano, Kenshin and Tomoe, and their devoted pet parent, Gerardine Baugh.
On February 13, my husband Michael announced we were going for a ride, but refused to tell me where we were going. It was a beautiful, sunny day, and he drove us out into the country. Eventually, we arrived at TAILS Humane Society in Dekalb, IL. We were adopting a kitty companion for one of our most sociable cats, Kenshin. Happy Valentine’s Day!
Sanosuke—also known as Sano—became a family member right from the moment we held him. Now he follows my husband around, searches for him when he wakes up, and loves kisses and hugs. When he plays, he wraps his paws around the other cats’ bodies and doesn’t let go. He watches the older cats and imitates them, even how they sleep.
Kenshin and Tomoe were also rescue cats from TAILS. My husband, who is disabled and has seizures, calls his kitties his best friends. They watch television with him and sit with him when he reads. Tomoe and Kenshin take turns sitting by his side for hours when he isn’t feeling well. Michael’s a complete “softie” at heart, especially when it comes to his family and cats because, well, he is a cat, personality-wise.
