Brandy Day140: Ben…..He’s My Cat

image

Oh Ben…..he’s so handsome. Yet a pain in the ass. I love him so much as I adopted him almost a year after Jordan passed, on Jordan’s first birthday without us.
His name was Desoto at the Humane Society. I changed it to Ben for unknown reasons, though I have to clarify Ben is my cat and NOT a guy when telling stories.  He had been there for a bit prior to me adopting him. I had NO clue what I was getting myself into. They say ‘all black’ cats have the most personality. Truth. He goes out with the dogs. He’s as smart as a human and knows it. When people come to my house I have to warn them about my cat, not the two dogs. All in all though he is great and I couldn’t imagine not having his punk-ness around.

Brandy Day64: Here Kitty

KC and I road tripped it down to Exotic Feline Rescue here in southern IN. What an amazing trip. These amazing animals in captivity was kind of hard to see but after learning some of their stories I was somehow OK with it. For example two of the tigers were ‘pets’ to a man who was using them to lure children into his home. He was arrested and charged with ‘children crimes’ and now the beautiful cats get to be outdoors in safe environments and well cared for. I’d recommend taking the trip.
