Roswell is very friendly, even for a cat, and he loves meeting new people. He recently met someone who became his best friend almost right away, which surprised his family.
While shopping, Roswell’s mom saw a skeleton cat Halloween decoration and decided to buy it. Her favorite holiday is Halloween, and she likes to decorate for it. What better way to do that than with something that honors her cat friends? She took the cat home and was thinking about where to put it when she thought it might be fun to show it to Roswell first to see how he would react.
And just like that, they became friends.
Roswell’s mom, Lindsey Kuzmin, told The Dodo, “He ran right up to it and began sniffing it.” “Within a few minutes, he was licking it and brushing up against it like he was trying to groom it. I didn’t think he’d be so friendly with the skeleton cat right away, but he loves it.”
Now, Roswell spends every day with his friend the skeleton. His mom keeps it in her office, which is where he spends most of the day, so it’s always near him and keeps him company.
Kuzmin said, “When he walks by it, he brushes up against it as if to say hello, and sometimes he even kisses it.”
Roswell also takes the skeleton cat with him when he rides in his stroller. This is one of his favorite things to do, and he loves having his new little friend with him.
Leela, Roswell’s sister, didn’t like the skeleton cat as much when she first met it, but Roswell has helped her warm up to it a bit. He wants everyone he cares about to get along.
When Kuzmin bought the skeleton cat, she had no idea that it would become such a part of the house. Now, it’s so much more than just a Halloween decoration.
Kuzmin said, “The skeleton cat is like family now, so I’ll keep it around all year.”
