So after two months of listening to him Andy and I finally committed to getting a cat. Max went to Ceramic Cafe and painted a water and food dish for the pending puss, and we would discuss the different things that cats do and need from a family. It was so very calm and unrushed. There was never any begging. (Maybe because my kids had absolutely no idea where one gets a pet..?)
Finally one day came the last week of school where I had no kids with me and I made a trip to the Rancho Coastal Humane Society. There in the Cattery I met Naboo, a two year old silver tabby. The name alone caught my eye (Naboo is a planet from Star Wars - the movies Max and Hannah love so much). He was a real winner. Andy & I took the kids down two days later to meet him and they all fell in love with him. He played, purred, rubbed on them, let them pet him and follow him around.
We had found a furry pet with a name much to Max's liking. Naboo is a nice distraction to have around the house. Thanks, Max.
