Chili Chili


Love at first sight...

We went to the Humane Society just to look around and see if there was a cat we liked. At that point, we didn't even have a litter box, because we were "just looking." When we entered the cat room there was a huge cat napping in a toy baby bed. We all laughed and greeted him and then my husband said, "That's our cat." I advised him that this was the very first cat we had seen and to keep an open mind.

We walked around, met each cat, and even had help from one of the volunteers who works at the shelter. Towards the end of our visit she told us that "Chili" was the best mannered cat they had. We asked which one Chili was... and it was the first cat we had seen lounging and napping as we came in. We met with Chili a few times and just fell in love with him. The moment we got home with him he was walking around like he had always lived there before. He lays with my daughter until she falls asleep and then he comes out and cuddles with my husband and I. Then when it's time for bed, he waits in the hallway (so we can see him!) for us to go to bed. He has such a wonderful personality and we always banter about who he likes the best!  We have 4 children and he is amazing with each one of them. We are so blessed to have "Chili Cheese Dog" in our lives. Now, he's the most spoiled cat I know, and he deserves it.
