Before I met John, he wasn't really a "cat person". He had a 13 year old cat... who sadly had to be put to sleep about a month after I met John. He was sick, and had a heart condition but John loved that cat. He just didn't like cats in general. He allowed me to adopt our first two cats and started to fall in love. He loves the kitties we have now and has definitely developed a heart for rescuing the kitties in need (especially abandoned kittens). But yesterday he did something that took my by surprise. We went to town to pick up some stuff for dinner and as we were pulling out of the store parking lot, we saw a cat across the street by the old feed mill. The cat looked fairly young (1-2 years old), black and white shorthaired, skinny and kinda scruffy looking... obviously had been out on his/her own for awhile. I was sad but wasn't even going to say anything when John said "You want to stop and get him?". ... what an AWESOME guy I have!!! Unfortunately, the cat took off and disappeared into the building. We're going to go back and keep trying though, but I just had to share that. A year ago he wouldn't have even thought of stopping to pick up a stray kitty!
