How to Win a Cat's Heart

 Claw and Sparky

My husband has always had a fear of cats after being attacked by one that landed on his back.  So when he met me and I had two, in order to win them over he came up with the idea of giving them tuna before bed.  Sparky, who took little coaxing when it came to food jumped on the bandwagon.  My husband was instantly his best friend.  Claw took a little slower coming around, after all she was MY cat and she wasn’t going to bow down to anyone no matter what it was.  With Sparky being such a pig, Claw figured if she wanted in on this special dessert she had to lose a little of her dignity and began to join in on the fun when Mark started clinking on the tuna can. 

Since I’d never gave the cats any wet food before, this was an extra special treat that carries on today with Boxer and Leia and for every cat after, who will never have to know what it is like to go without at least a spoonful of tuna or canned food.  Thanks to a guy terrified of cats who won their hearts and tummys over to him with a little fish and a whole lot of love.

  Don't mess with my tuna OR my Daddy or else...
