We haven’t had a family pet for years. Our family cat, Annie Cat, has lived with my brother for almost five years now. We had to leave her in the States when we moved to France in 2004.
Today, Vilay finally caved and said we could have a cat. It wasn’t just the pressure from myself and the kids. It was, also, because he likes having a cat in the house.
We have decided to name the newest member of our family, Emmie Cat. If it were left up to Vilay he would have simply named her Annie Cat after our Annie in the States but that didn’t feel right to me.
Emmie is exploring the apartment and doing surprisingly well with the three kids. She has even rubbed against my son’s legs after he has crawled around on the floor following her everywhere. I thought she would be terrified of him but she isn’t.
Emmie Cat is a gentle and sweet cat. We are so lucky to have her.
