thankful for my cat :: The Joy Challenge

I have a confession. For as long as I can remember, I have hated cats. Detested them.

I avoided them. Shooed them. Thought they were sneaky, nasty creatures … until I met Madeleine.

And now I love cats.

Madeleine adopted us when she was just 6 months old. She wandered into our garage and won’t leave. I chased her out. I locked her out. But she wouldn’t leave.

Don’t laugh at me … but I think God thought I needed a kitten. So he dropped one on my doorstep.

I adore her.

And I do admit, she owns me.

And our house.

Who owns you?
