One day, a few years back, while my son, Cam and my nephew, Michael were painting our neighbor’s house, this little guy appeared and followed Michael everywhere.  After several days of this, Mike brought him home since this cute little guy had chosen him.scout 

 To his disbelief his parents were good with it even though they never thought they liked cats and he would be leaving for college the following month.web-0soule0-r1-033-15

  Now he~ Scout~ is a king in the house along with their golden retriever, Georgia who is the queen.  web-ggggg

It’s true.  My brother and his wife no longer hold these positions in thier own household. web-scscscsc

  1. You grabbed me immediately with that title, cat person that I am. I wouldn’t have been able to resist either. And he looks like he’s happy with his people and, of course, the queen. :)

  2. Oh, what happy eyes on the third picture!

  3. Best decision he, and I, ever made!

  4. beautiful kitten!

  5. I so enjoyed your story about Scout! I have a Michael who’ll be starting college soon too! I adore animals and I have a sweet 14 year old kitty named Arthur and a golden retriever named Molly. They definitely rule the roost here, and I wouldn’t have it any other way! Hugs, Terri

  6. I just love these pictures! I’d love that old metal milk box. :)
    Love your processing on the last shot and that quote must certainly ring true with those who enjoy this meme.

  7. So sweet! I especially love the one by the mil container. By the way, your pink pictures are lovely as well. ~

  8. I see I’m not the only one with a cat post today. Cute kitty, precious dog.

    My cat got to be the star today because the dog had gone for a ride, so Ike played it for all he was worth.

  9. I ♥ cats!!!

    Here is my C C…do hope you can stop by sometime today.
