I have wanted a pet ever since I moved out of my parents house at 18 and no longer lived with our family dog, Rocco. However, being in college and living in rented apartments with roommates just didn't seem like the ideal environment to have a pet in. When David and I moved in together in October, the time was finally right to adopt a pet!
Although I do absolutely adore dogs, at this stage in our life a puppy is just too much responsibility. David had never owned cats growing up and was a little wary of getting a kitten, but we decided that a cute kitten baby would be the perfect addition to our new apartment.
We did lots of research on different cat breeds, knowing that we wanted a cat that was social, loving and cuddly. We narrowed our selection down to a few breeds, and when we saw pictures of Marshall, we fell instantly in love.
Having Marshall has been such an amazing experience, and I can't wait to spend many more years with him. He is sweet, loving, fun and adventurous. I am able to take him on car rides and to the office, and he loves meeting new people. He wakes us up in the morning with cuddles and loud purrs, and keeps us entertained in the evenings with his wild games. I love him more than I could ever imagine!
