I came upon my special guy in April of 2007. I am allergic to cats, and have been since my early 20’s. That always bothered me, since I had 2 cats in high school, yet sadly they were killed by a dog living next door to us. In high school, I didn’t know any better, and didn’t realize the dangers outside cats face. I had some seasonal allergy issues and my doctor prescribed some medication, and thinking this would also work with animals, I decided it was the time to bring a cat into my life again. I was visiting my father, and I mentioned to his wife I was thinking about adopting a kitten. She told me her neighbor had mentioned her vet had some kittens at his office. She did me the favor of calling the neighbor who in turn called the vet and they had one kitten left. A black male, with yellow eyes. It was fate, because I’d always wanted a black male with yellow eyes. The neighbor drove me to her vet, and there we found Vlad. He was just barely over 14 weeks old. The only one of his litter left, as nobody wanted a black cat. Again, fate, I love black cats. I brought him home and gave him a bath. Two weeks later I took him to a vet near my home, and found out he was infested with fleas and the odd color of his ears was ear mites. I was shocked, since I’d found him at a veterinary clinic. Vlad is now 2 years old. He is a big boy, 17 pounds. He is solidly built, and a very large cat. When I have company, people seem to think I have a miniature panther. He’s unbelievably friendly, and he is the big boss. I adore him.
