Seven years ago today, I was asked if I would adopt a cat because his owner was moving and couldn’t bring him. If I couldn’t take him, he was being placed in a shelter. This cat, I was told, is 8 years old and black which means if he went into a shelter it was essentially a death sentence. People generally don’t adopt older cats and the superstition about black cats being bad luck actually makes them harder to place. So I begrudgingly said yes. Immediately I learned that he needed about $1000 worth of shots and dental work, which wasn’t easy on a fireman’s salary. He also was so terrified by the sudden displacement that he wouldn’t even come down from his hiding spot for months. It was a rocky start for both of us. I changed his name to Benjamin Cat and for the last 7 years he has been my best friend on the planet. I can’t even begin to name the ways that he has made my life better. I’ve made a lot of bad decisions in my life, but taking him in wasn’t one of them. Pet owners will understand what I mean when I say he quite literally saved my life. Anyway, he’s famous now and he gets catered to like the celebrity he is. All this to say, it’s a good day. And if you’re thinking about adopting a pet, don’t go right for the kittens and puppies. I can’t imagine life without my pal and you might be robbing yourself of a truly amazing, meaningful friendship if you don’t stop to consider an older animal.
