9 Things My Toddler and My Cats Have in Common

By caseymullins |

Weebles! For felines and humines!

For any of you who may not be familiar, I have two rescue cats. Percy, a brown tabby who is somewhere around 3 years old and allergic to food. And Wink, a seven-year-old orange tabby with one eye and thumbs. We rescued them last year from the Indianapolis Humane Society on my half birthday (October 28th) when Vivi was 5 months old. We figured with Vivi being immobile, the cats would have enough time to adjust to her. Truthfully we went in with the intention of getting one cat (Wink) but when I turned around after petting Wink, I found Percy curled up in Vivi’s stroller purring as she tugged on his fur and pulled on his ears.

Any cat who willingly put up with a baby? That was the (second) cat for us.

Cats and toddlers have a lot in common, I narrowed it down to nine, with tenth being I can’t imagine my life without either of them.

What Cats and Toddlers Have in Common

They bring you random treasures

I have had many a (toy, thank you) mouse dropped at my feet by both cats. Supposedly it's a sign of affection and respect when cats bring you dead stuff, or that's what cat owners tell themselves so they worry a little less about their own perishable mortality. Vivi likes to bring me stuff too, specifically bits of confetti or tissues from the garbage.

Our life is never boring with these three around.
