I first saw Binx (pronounced like Binks) at the petshop not far from my home. He was free of charge (I don't know what happened to the other cats, but I think they went to the pound), and I couldn't keep my eyes off of him. I knew I had to have him. My last cat Gabriel ran away when a dog chased him, and knowing I couldn't have animals in the last house I lived in, I thought it was pointless to try and get another cat. So, I waited, until I moved, and then I waited some more. I saw Binx at the petstore, and I knew I had to bring him home. I don't know why, but the first time I saw him, I loved him. I've always loved cats. Always, and I always want at least one around. So, I brought him home. Shortly afterwards, he started showing signs of an upper respitory infection, and off to the vet we went. He was so small. Underfed. Not properly cared for. But a few days later, he was as good as new, gaining his much-needed weight, and now, nearly a year later, he is my pride and joy, my baby. He is well-fed, maybe even fat, extremely ornery, and well, crazy. But I love him with all my heart. All my heart. And I pray that he will be at my side for many more years to come.
