The Song of Rufus the Red

β€œHe drew a circle that shut me out –
Heretic , rebel, a thing to flout.
But love and I had the wit to win:
We drew a circle and took him In!”

When we brought Rufus home to keep Mickey Mouser company,
we had no idea that we had initiated a month long battle of wills.
That was in July 2015.

Love and firm determination won out!
Rufus, Mickey, and I would like to wish you a Happy Valentine’s Day.

Poem by Edwin Markham.
Rufus the Red and Mickey Mouser adopted through PAWS.
The love of your life could be waiting at your local shelter!

I love today’s blog too. I love all of them but seeing your two boys makes it even happier. Love is a perfect word for these two loving brothers, and how we feel who so enjoy seeing them and learning more and more about them.

I always love hearing about another bromance!! Love the quote too!

So cute! I love seeing kitties get along. I had a similar battle with Manna and Dexter. It was really tense when Dexter first came home, but they have become good friends. Dare I say – they love each other. I’m so glad that your kitties have had a happy ending too! I love the poem. πŸ™‚
