Three Years with Martin Luther the Cat

Today marks the three year anniversary that Martin came into our lives!

Martin was in a litter of rescued kittens named Peter, Paul, and Mary (a sign) until it was discovered that Paul was a girl. Then the trio became Peter, Pauline, and Mary (this is important later).

Martin, because you have been with us for three years, we believe you are mature enough for these confessions:

1. We thought your sister, Mary, was the cutest in the litter. But I wanted a boy cat, so we brought you home.

2. We thought you were a short-haired cat. We would have never brought you home had we known that you’d grow to be a 15 lb. beast, covered – COVERED – in hair.

3.When we brought you home, I freaked out because you and Hollis hated each other. I tried to convince Husbanks that we needed to take you back. Husbanks talked me out of it. So did Ginny, who gave me great tips on how Clyde (cat) and Pinky (dog) got along. I ALMOST RETURNED YOU. It’s very hard to type that.

4. You are the best cat I have ever had. That’s no confession. You know that.

We love you, Martin!
