Cat Lady Samantha grew up with a dog and didn't really care for cats. That is...until she met Feline Fella Dan almost nine years ago.
Sam tell us, "Dan grew up with cats and shortly after getting married in 2003 we decided to adopt Hondo (the gray tabby). And it's true, cats ARE addicting!!" Hondo was adopted from Fancy Cats Rescue.
Soon to follow were Boogers (on Sam's shoulders), Fido (the tuxedo cat) and three Ragdoll cats-- Pork Chop, Tiskers, and Mittens. The newest member of the family is puppy Ethan, a lab mix, who is soon to be a year old.
Lest anyone doubt his devotion to his feline friends, Dan, a police officer, found a way to proclaim his feline fella status to the world:
"My husband loves his cats SO much that he has Boogers, Hondo, and Fido tattooed on his left arm (he wants the other 3 cats on his arm, but I said maaayyyyybbbeeee later!!!) :D
"Dan is a cop and recently made it onto the S.W.A.T team. During the S.W.A.T. school, they were giving him so much crap about his cat tats, that at their graduation the squad presented Dan with a white stuffed cat, as they felt so bad for teasing him (EVERYONE knows he's a cat lover). So crazy cat ladies and crazy cat husbands unite!"
Thanks Dan, for showing us that a "tough guy" public servant can also be a big softie with a big heart! We salute you!
