Every Thursday we post a story about cats who have changed the lives of the hoomans they encounter or live with. This Thursday, we have @shambhavisoul who talks about how one decision changed her life for the best!
Having been a dog lover, she found it hard to trust cats. Common belief has it that cats are unreliable. But when she took one in, her life changed forever.
The joy of parenting a cat was great and unlike anything, she was prepared for. It was fun but with immense learning and discovery every step of the way. Fifty is a Persian Cat. Fifty’s name was inspired by the “Fifty Shades of Grey”. And just like his fur, Fifty is everything grey, there was nothing black or white about him.
“He is anything but ordinary. He lives life king-size & inspired commoners like me, his mother, to write a book on him! He is unconventionally sassy & if he were to ever star in a movie, he would definitely be an anti-hero! For the longest time, we thought that Fifty was a girl & called him Mrs Khan.” She says with a laugh.
Despite his lofty demeanour, Fifty got on well with their first son, Glaeder, the gentle Great Dane. Glaeder was unaffected by Fifty’s tantrums & his erratic claws were often calmed down by the gentle giant’s kind kisses! Theirs was a relation between fire & water. However, it was a different scenario with his sister Aishwarya. Isha’s(Short for Aishwarya) received a lesson in the hierarchy.
Fifty had a typical relationship with his father. plastered with awkward hugs & frequent eye-rolls. Despite the “grunts” & “mumbles”, the love between them grew by leaps & bounds in no time! Both of them were also similar in ways - had tough exteriors but were super gooey from the inside! Aprit (the father) secretly loved the rebel inside Fifty that roared just like a tiger.
This story is one amongst many but different in its own way. It took one cat to inspire his hooman to the extent where she has penned down these precious memories in the form of a book. Stick around to learn more about this beauty. You never know, something special may be given away (hint hint) from him to you!
