Love it!

Location: Oneonta, Alabama, USA


I wanted to get a new kitten in hopes of finding a friend for my two adult cats (who don’t like each other at all!). Plus I just love kittens. <3

I went to the local shelter where there was a room full of kittens. They said we could open the cages and take them out. Well from the first cage we opened, this little guy jumped into my hands, ran up my chest and attached himself to my neck purring. All the other kittens wanted to run and play, but this one wanted to be loved. I ended up holding him almost the whole time while I was looking at the other kittens. I knew he had chosen me. So we brought him home and named him Obi (from Oberon, King of the Fairies and he is a total love). PS – my male cat has a friend now (but my female hates Obi too).

    Wonderful that Obi chose you!! He has a beautiful face. Glad your male cat has a friend. Too bad for the female. Maybe she would like a female kitten:)

    Good Morning Mr. Obi. You are cutie with a very wise expression! This hoomin needed you but only you knew it. Thanks for adopting your hoomin and making friends with big brother. Sisters can so fussy.

    He’s a charmer. Now the female cat needs a friend of her own, too. :)

    What a cute story — thank you for sharing! Makes me wonder whether your female cat is a tuxie; I knew one who had that kind of personality, needed to be Sole Ruler.

    Many years ago, the same thing happened to us. They opened the cage and a gray and white male climbed up my husband’s chest!! He was ours for about 13 years until he went to the bridge!! I always thought sometimes cats choose us!!!
    You have a real love bug there!!

    Southern fried Alabama kitty! I love Obi’s face markings and his spaced-out expression.

    Obi is such a handsome guy – and has such expressive eyes! Love his story; you were meant to belong to him.
    Wishing you much happiness!

    Obi sure is a cute little guy. I hope he is still as affectionate as he was in the shelter. Sounds like your female cat is a loner. Perhaps that’s just her personality and love her for who she is. ^ ^

    Obi is a real charmer! I’m happy for him and your other male. It’s always a blessing when your fur kids play well together.

    The ONLY other cat my Gabby liked was the resident male we had when she was a kitten. It doesn’t matter if the others are male or female (she’s especially intolerant of females), she wants to be an only cat.

    The right cat always seems to pick the owner and not the other way around. Obi is a cutie!

    Obi has great markings & expressive eyes. Handsome fellow! I’m glad two are friends. Try some calming spray when the female gets fussy. The Feliaway spray really works with my cats. Great health & happiness to all!

    Jersey Girl – you are so right! My female is a tuxie – very aristoCATic. :) She is warming to him slightly but it will never be love, I’m afraid.
