I would have posted this on the 5th, which was the actual day I rescued him, but since I just found his baby picture I thought I’d just be a few days late and say HAPPY ANNIVERSARY HARVEY!
October 5, 2011 when I had come back to the office from lunch I was informed that one of our staff had discovered some stray kittens behind the building. I went to look at them and among them sat this little black beauty with just a tiny white smudge across his chest. He looked at me just like he’s looking at the camera here. He would not take his eyes off me. I knew then and there that I had to bring him home.
So I did.
Mr. LaVeaux wasn’t too thrilled by this, but once he held the kitten he had a name for him already. Harvey. And it fit perfectly.
It was serendipitous to find a black kitten so close to Halloween. He is kind of like a little Samhain good luck charm. There is nothing worse than the myth of black cats being bad luck. They make the best pets, and they are so playful. Harvey is a little over three years old and still acts like a baby.
Here’s to our first three years with Mr. Harvey LaVeaux. May we have many, many more!
