Originally, he was to be Captain Jack Sparrow of movie fame. Then the vet told us he was a she and we ended up with a cat named Sparrow. You see the irony here.
Luckily I never saw her kill birds, although she was handy at keeping the mice at bay. My husband was exceedingly embarrassed and didn’t want anyone to know that we had a cat named Sparrow, but I didn’t mind. The truth is stuff like that doesn’t embarrass me at all. Why should it. Sparrow is a perfectly fine name for cats and pirates alike. I’ve got a dog named Moose, for heaven’s sake.
The cats I have owned have all been affectionate and lovely animals. I hear from a friend who works for Petfinders that cats are thought of a second class citizens in the pet adoption world. They just aren’t on the radar the way dogs are. Today is I am a Cat Parent day at Petfinders. What I would love you to do is to click this link and give the cat adoption page at Petfinders some love today.
Because as much as I love my dogs, cats are people too. Lovely furry people who need not so furry people to bond with.
And if you go over to Petfinders you’ll be helping my friend Bethany out as well. Spread it around people – it’s cat parent day.
