my man, saved from a two year old.

This is my baby, had him for almost 2 years now.
I first saw him at a friend of a friends place, scared out of his mind. For the first hour or two that I was there I didnt even know they had a cat. Until I saw a black blur go from under one couch to the other. When I pointed out the cat the owner said "oh that cat is so stupid, never comes out from under the couch!" He then continued to say that his 2 year old son LOVED to pick him up by the tail and throw him in a full bathtub! I told him that he should give me his cat, because I really wanted a pet (I wasnt allowed to have a kitten, but I couldnt see an animal being treated like that)
He said he couldnt because his wife would kill him. I had to leave not much after that, when again I saw the kitten run out and the owner jumped at him! He isnt a little guy either, at least 300+ pounds! No wonder he wouldnt come out.
Well amazing news came to me the next day when I got a call from my friend that his friends wife said I could have the kitten. I of course agreed and now have my bestest friend Bandit.
Heres him the day I got him:

and some funny places he has slept over the years:

Re: my man, saved from a two year old.

OMG! Every picture was crazier and crazier, I didn't think they could get any better, but that last one of him all sprawled out on the couch just killed me with laughter! I thought his story was sad, and he is very lucky you were able to rescue him. I can tell he loves it now, because a cat just won't sleep like that (so relaxed and comfortable) unless they are very secure and happy.

Good job!
Heidi

What a sad story, that they were letting him be treated like that. I'm so glad you intervened. Look at what a huge difference you've made in his life. It's a great story!

I'm so glad you convinced those people to let you have him. He is gorgeous - he looks like quite a character

Bandit is so handsome! And what a character. I'm so glad you rescued him. I can't imagine any parent allowing their child to treat an animal that way.
