This is Flash Gorden aka Sir Flash A Lot…and my son. At the time this photo was taken, we’d only been to our local no-kill Humane Society animal shelter twice. We’d met this fellow both times…and both times we took note of him.
On the day I photographed these two bonding, I was getting ready to fill out the paperwork to adopt him. He’d been in the shelter for 3 years with no one showing interest in him as he was already an adult cat when he came in.
It was instant love for us but I wanted to be sure we were right for him. He chose us, I think. He sleeps with us, cuddles when we’re not sleeping, walks with us when he thinks we need a guide, nips when we’ve mis-behaved and plays just like he was still a kitten. He’s a talker…doesn’t stint on purring and is very greatful when we give him treats.
This is my family. I couldn’t ask for better loved ones then these 2. The joy they bring is immeasurable!
