A few years ago, we decided to get my daughter her own pet. Out of all the pets available, a cat seemed to be the least amount of trouble. So, after an exhaustive search, we settled on the scroungy, impish feline we affectionately referred to as 'Ditch Kitty.' After a while, he got a name: Peyton Sunshine Meownning. (We are Colts fans.)

We are about three or four (who is counting) years into this relationship and to celebrate International Day of the Cat *yes I know I am so late* I wanted to show you why Peyton has proven himself a way better pet than my dogs could ever be. Don't get me wrong; my 16-yr-old chihuahua is LIFE. But there have been a few times Peytey has been the best pet you could ask for.

THE TIME HE LET ME SELFIE US BEING AFFECTIONATE.
