In our home, and following our habits , there where always pets because we both have grown in in their company and share this passion.
We had tropical fishes for years and had a good time in breeding several species; We had birds (canaries and parakeets) We had hamsters; We had Duke (a boxer) that fully met the expectations you have when you think of having a dog and because of
that, I don't dare having another one for surely I will be disappointed because it will hardly be comparable ...
and even though we both have had cats, there was none that we care enough to recognize an extraordinary passion beyond our normal fondness for animals.
Everything changed with one little guy who chose me for his owner, it hapened this way: it was in 1996, Duke was already in our lives and I had stayed home to study because I had an exam that day.
When I left home and headed to the bus stop I was approached and harassed repeatedly by a small being who, with great audacity crossed my way, rubed on my legs and meowed loud and almost jumped to my lap not regarding my hurry
not to miss the bus ...
And that's how Bernardo (better known as Beny) came into our lives and as he grew and developed his personality, a standard was created of what we expected from a cat.
