But my favorite part about him is his purr. It’s deep and sonorous. Rumbling and rich. And he’s always got a purr at the ready, just waiting to envelop you in its soft, warm tones. He purrs when you pet him. He purrs when you feed him. He purrs at the sight of you sometimes. When I’m grumpy or stressed, I take a Stallion break. The sound of his purr and his soft fur gently nuzzling into my hand help me feel at peace.
It will be a bitter-sweet moment for me when these two boys get adopted. I’ll be thrilled to see them leave the shelter and go to loving homes. But I’ll miss them. I’m looking forward to that day, when they’re nostalgic memories.
