During my first day of retirement, a soft meow caught my attention as I strolled through my neighborhood. A tiny six-month-old kitten trailed behind me, searching for love and care. It left me wondering: who could abandon such an adorable creature in our peaceful community?
Two Names, One Loving Cat
Today, our beloved feline answers to two distinct names. When we visit the vet, everyone there knows him as “Biscuit.” Why Biscuit? Well, on our first visit, he won everyone over with his kneading antics, reminiscent of baking biscuits. However, at home, the name “Little Bit” suits him more, reminding us of the day we found him – so tiny, yet full of life.
Growing Up and Stirring Mischief
Over time, Little Bit has grown into a robust and handsome cat, bursting with curiosity. I often find him in the most unexpected places, from the closet’s top shelf to behind the couch cushions. His mischievous nature keeps us on our toes! We thought our childproofing days had ended, but with Biscuit around, those days returned. Now, our kitchen cabinets are locked tight, ensuring he doesn’t steal a loaf of bread, a pack of chips, or even cereal.
Biscuit’s Favorite Pastimes
Outside, birds flocking to our feeders fascinate him. He can spend hours just watching, occasionally expressing his excitement with playful chirps. Indoors, he has taken a liking to TV, especially shows featuring birds and squirrels. What truly amazes us, though, is his athletic prowess. From a standstill, Biscuit can leap nearly six feet into the air, showcasing his energy and agility.
The Joy He Brings
Every day with Biscuit feels like a gift. His warm nature and deep, expressive eyes convey gratitude for the life we’ve given him. But in many quiet moments, I find myself thanking him. Not only for the happiness he’s brought into our home, but for the times he’s lifted my spirits without even knowing it.
