I Love My Wife’s Pussy
My wife has a pussy and I love it. (Now, please wipe off that grin on your face) She calls it Tammy and sometimes Mia. It’s short for Tamara. I don’t know why she called it as such, but I think it sounds cute and nice. I’m not a huge fan of cats but this one caught my heart.
One afternoon, as she was walking home, she heard a little cry from a kitten in the bushes. Being very curious, she decided to look for the kitty in distress. What she saw was a little ball of fur all dirty and hungry. Her kind heart would not let this kitten stay in the bushes all by herself. So she decided to bring it with her. She cleaned little Tammy and gave her food. And her love affair with Tammy was sealed with this kind act.
When I got home to our condominium, I was obviously surprised at the meowing little animal on the sofa. I was perplexed at what I saw because I knew we did not own a cat. My wife’s tone and enthusiastic smile meant that we were going to keep her. I agreed.
The next day we brought Tammy to the vet to get checked. Health issues were raised and some interventions were needed. That meant cash out for me. But to my wife it meant saving her little furry friend. If it meant a lot to my wife, then I’d do anything to help the poor feline. In a few weeks, Tammy begun to recover and she was all well.
Does your cat scratch your furniture?
Toilet training the kitten was fairly easy. We bought kitty litter filler and a box where she can do her thing. Apparently, they can learn quickly. Another hurdle I thought was her ruining the furniture. Apart from the occasional climbing on the sofa and dining chair, she did not do much damage to the condominium’s interior.
Tammy was our first pet as a couple. Her little kitty needs were part of our monthly budget. Cat food, litter filler, shots from the vet and of course little kitty toys. Since we did not have any kids back then, she was sort of our little baby. Caring for her was an integral part of our daily life.
Our routines also included Tammy. We took her out regularly so she gets exercise. We cleaned her regularly and of course we took her to her veterinarian for regular checkups and shots.
Tammy had a close friend we called Tiger. It started out as friendship and as expected, things got a little hot one time and our Tammy is no longer our little baby. She became the mother of four adorable little kittens. Now, we had 5 cats in the house. This means more tasks and more responsibilities.
What pets do you love
Our little kitty went her own way
When we moved to another house, we brought them with us. However, we can’t let them stay in the house this time. We built a little place for them to bunk at night. But eventually they all discovered that they wanted to be free from their domesticated lifestyle. One by one, they left our home only visiting us on occasions. It was like an empty nest feeling in our part.
- Never leave children unsupervised with pets
- Some children are allergic to cats so be very careful
- Some cats may play by scratching and biting
- Always wash your hands after handling cats
- Do not assume that stray cats will behave like your domesticated pets - they won't
An unlikely reunion
Years have pass and we moved to another home. We now have our own little princess and life went on after Tammy left us. Several weeks back, we decided to visit our old house now occupied by my sister-in-law and her family. My wife, daughter and I went to the park near the house and played for a couple of minutes. As we walked back to the house, we saw a familiar figure. It was Tammy running towards us. She ran with a bounce in her step as if jumping for joy. We called to her and she rubbed her body against our legs to say hi. The reunion was memorable.
After several years I did not expect her to remember us. But she did. We never forget our family. So yes, this is one cat that I will never forget. My wife’s pet is one of kind.
