|Angel Princess Kitty|
Before I finish my story, I think I need to give a little background information on our Angel. Angel was rescued from an animal shelter in Virginia when she was just a few weeks old. My husband, who wasn't a big fan of cats, was completely against the idea of getting a cat. To be honest, I wasn't a cat person myself, and up until Angel I never had a cat. So, why did we adopt her? My little girl fell in love with my Grandmother's cat and begged and begged for one of her own for months. Then my Grandfather started bugging me about it too, asking me when was I going to get his baby girl a kitten every time I saw him. If you think grandchildren can be spoiled well great grandchildren are double spoiled. After months of the get the baby girl a cat campaign, I caved when a friend of mine told me about a kitten that was going to be euthanized. The kitten looked exactly like my Grandmother's cat, Boots, that my daughter adored. She was tiny, smaller than my hand when we got her. We even had to bottle feed her in the beginning, because she was too young for regular food.
My daughter named her new kitten Angel Princess Kitty, and over the years we've shortened it to "Angel" when we're not calling her "Evil" or "Psycho". You see, I'm not really sure what happened, but the sweet little animal we brought home stayed rather small in size, but grew a BIG attitude. She attacks everyone that tries to touch her except...my husband. That's right, my poor daughter that wanted a cat so badly can't even touch Angel, but my husband who didn't want her at all is her favorite human in the world. Go figure. Now, that doesn't mean that she won't come lay on the lap of one of her enemies when she wants a little warmth. We just don't dare lift a finger to pet her, or we pull back a bloody hand. It's an I can touch you, but don't you dare touch me thing with her, unless of course you are my husband. He can do what ever he wants to her like putting goofy hats and neckties on her, and he still keeps all of his fingers in tact.
