Wow!!!!!!!!! He lost 100 lbs!!! That had to take alot of work!!!!! I am impressed!!!
Here are two pics of my hubby with Merlin......he babies him even more than I do, and he was never a cat lover until he fell in love with Merlin...he always said, "We will NOT have any cats in the house, they pee on the carpet, they claw up the furniture, they destroy a house .....blah, blah, blah......." And that is why I am so filled with joy when I see him with Merlin, and how he treats him, because this is a man who never liked cats very much, and now he just loves Merlin, and he would probably cry if something happened to him (macho image be damned)
The way it happened was because Merlin was abandoned by his mother, and terrorized to the point of shock by a dog, and all his brothers and sisters were killed....I found Merlin in the shed, ( only a few weeks old) shaking, scared half to death, and starving......I took him in the house, much to hubby's protests.
Hubby first said, "Get that cat out of the house....I said no cats in the house"
I told him basically to kiss my hiney, the cat was staying until it got strong enough, and able to be back outside.
He wasn't very happy with that, but he dealt with it.
Then when Merlin finally got stronger, and was starting to play, Brent kinda liked playing with him....he loved it when Merlin "attacked" him....and then he started saying how smart Merlin was, and then Merlin started cozing up to him, and sleeping on him at night, and pretty soon....guess who's baby Merlin was?? :laughing:
NOW...Brent watches the window for Merlin, (he's an indoor/outdoor cat) and when Merlin is out there and wants in, he jumps on the window sill, and who do you think is the first one to run to the door to let him in????
And when we have anything for supper involving hamburger, brent saves part of his so he can feed it to Merlin (who LOVES hamburger) :laughing:
What a sucker!!!! :laughing2 He babies Merlin more than I do!!!!!!!! Here are some pics of him with Merlin......I am so proud when I see them together, because of the change Merlin made in Brent's heart towards cats!!!! ( he adores Merlin now!!!)
I will have to post the pics in the next two posts.
