Iwas overjoyed to learn that the KSDS program would allow me to keep my 3 year old pet cats. Even though this blog is about my service dog, Sissy and Buddy are two of my finest feline friends. Therefore, they get at least one post for now. After the dog comes home, I will probably have more stories to tell about how they get along.
My experiences with my first apartment cat, Punkie, taught me many things about pet care. Therefore, after I accepted that Punkie was not coming back; I picked from a kitten litter at a friend’s house, not the Wal-Mart parking lot, and instead of bringing one kitten home, I brought home two. I also decided that simple names would be better than strange ones. So I named the solid white female “Sissy,” and I named the black and white male, “Buddy!” I had them both fixed ASAP but I did not have them de-clawed. I think I did right by them because where Punkie was very anti-social, Sissy and Buddy are super social and very affectionate.
I love them and they love me. I hope they learn to live with the dog quickly.
