We hit the jackpot when we rescued this kitty 3 years ago from the Castle Rock, Colorado animal shelter. They had itty bitty kittens (very easily adopted) and older cats (also attractive because they're easy to care for). Batman was 5 months old, so we thought he had less of a chance of being adopted. Seemed like the right thing to do.....and our instincts paid off.
I'm a big believer in adopting animals. There are so many, many in need of good homes. When the time comes for us to get a dog, we will rescue him as well.
Back to Batman.....take a look at what he gracefully endures on a daily basis:
With his "baby". More on that later.
Please disregard the funky film on this window. I've given up. I still don't understand how it gets this way.....Jack and Lainey slime it throughout the day with their sippy cups and such.....I'm over it.
Here is Batman with "Lamby" keeping him warm.
"Batman needs a hat." (Notice that's Jack holding the tongs and Lainey standing close by. They work as a team in most cases when it comes to Batman.)
Another blanket covering.
"Drink your bottle, Batman."
Lucky guy.....Lamby and Baby.
Here is Lainey encouraging him to be a Mommy to this tiny fake kitty. She puts it by him all the time. He couldn't care less.
"Dis you baby, Batman!"
A dinosaur encounter.
They've tried to teach him colors, numbers and the ABCs. I suppose they haven't noticed that he doesn't talk.
Who else would tolerate this?!
