Stewie was the Kid’s First Pet

Getting your first pet can be one of your best childhood memories. We all still remember the day Stewie arrived with Brian almost four years ago. We only ended up keeping Stewie because Brian wasn’t good with kids, but we found him a purrfect furrever home. Stewie has been part of the family ever since. This post is sponsored by Swiffer® and the BlogPaws Professional Pet Blogger Network. I am helping spread the word about Swiffer but Sweep Tight only shares information we feel is relevant to our readers. Swiffer is not responsible for the content of this article.

The Kid’s First Pet

I found Stewie in an abandoned home where he and two other cats were left totally uncared for, except bags of cat food dumped all around the house. Upon entering the building he jumped into my arms out of the ceiling tiles. I loved him from that moment on. After taking him to the vet and making sure he was in full health, we brought him home to meet the kids.

He was an instant best friend. He was around 7 or 8 years old when we got him. He’s watched these kids grow up right along with me and he’s cracked me up, and touched my heart. If they’re ever sad, he doesn’t leave their side. If it’s time for fun, you’ll find him in the center of the action.

Stewie was my kids' first pet! He's the best cat ever.

As with most furry friends, #ShedHappens. But just like the rest of the family members, cleaning up after them just comes with the territory. Swiffer makes this task so much easier. Plus, they’re going the extra mile to help families with their new adopted pets.

I got one too! This is perfect since we just adopted little Bibble a couple months ago! He’s such a doll.

Bibble is the best!
