The Birthday Cat
My mother always wanted a Siamese cat. Over the years we had many stray cats & a couple of Siamese crosses and since I work at an animal shelter we never had to look very far when we wanted another cat.
Last summer my mother turned 90 in July and in August we took in a blue point Siamese male at the shelter. (Stray – no collar, no one called to ask if we had him.)
I took him home & told mom he was her birthday present & it was love at first sight.
Now her beautiful “Louie” is king of the house and also follows along with me when I take her dog for a walk.
He’s a very special cat!
