Mr. Bean....Mr. Bean....Friday I was speaking with Vicki Davis at the Tri County Humane Society about all of the wonderful pets that are up for adoption.  Although I wasn't  actively "looking" for a pet, Vicki happened to tell me the story of Mr. Bean.  A very polite almost 7 year old male cat, that had been at the shelter for quite some time.  His owner had passed away,and he'd been at the shelter and in a foster shelter care ever since.  His story intriqued me...and so..I went to the the tricountyhumanesociety.org website and typed in Bean.  His handsome face popped up on the screen, and I thought...Hmmmm...Maybe this would be the purr-fect fit.

So Friday night, I decided to make a run over to the humane society.  When I got there, he had already been transported over to PetSmart for adoption.  This actually worked out well for me since I had an appointment that evening.  So after my appointment, I stopped by Petsmart on my way home and asked to see Mr. Bean.  He was very calm and cool...He purred quietly, and was very EASY GOING.

So...Through the store I quickly went...looking for Cat things....He rested comfortably in his carrier all the way home.  He seemed happy when he walked in the door.  I got up last night and went into the living room to check on him...It was quite a sight...My sons, my nephew, and Mr. Bean were all sitting on the couch playing video games.  Yes...They ALL gave me the same look...like..."What?  Can't a cat play a video game?"  It was perfect.  I realized...yes...This is the perfect pet for us.

When I woke up this morning to check on the kids and Mr. Bean, I found Mr. Bean resting comfortably on my son.  He stayed there all morning.  Yes...I think we're all fine.
