My family and I had wanted a pet for some years, and getting our kitten Marvel changed our lives for the better.
I always knew that I was born to be a mother. I have two beautiful children who give me everything I could ever ask for. But somehow, I felt that if I had a pet, it would really make a difference. To me. To the kids. To the family. And I knew for a fact that pets are harder than children. Why, you ask? Because children grow up at some point in time and ask for what they want. Course, after a while, that can also be a problem because they never stop asking.
But with a pet, I knew that it would be a whole new ball game altogether. Did I mention my kids have wanted a pet forever? But I always kept postponing it. I told them that we are not ready. And we were not. If they cannot put their toys and books back in its place if they cannot brush their teeth twice a day and make their to-do list regularly, how could they take care of the pet?
So we wrote down a list of things that they needed to do to convince me that they can handle a pet. The fact that they made a list and started working on it encouraged me. It was my turn to do what I promised. I reached out to Rajeshwari. I had only a million doubts which she was super sweet enough to patiently clarify. We decided to adopt a kitten.
Many people wondered why we would pick a kitten over a puppy. But something told me that a kitten would be our choice. Kids also wanted one. And Rajeshwari sent us the picture of one. And we fell in love with him instantly. If anyone tells you that love, at first sight, is not true, do not believe them. Seeing as we are huge superhero fans, we decided to name him Marvel. He had Marvel written all over his face in that picture. Cute innocent eyes yet with a touch of mischief. Big and round, staring into the camera like he was posing.
Marvel came home within four days. My kids – aged 12 and 7 – were jumping with joy. We had also requested Raje to send us a litter box and some food for him. The first two days, it was more about letting him get adjusted to the new environment and telling the kids to give him the space he needed to get to know us. We introduced Marvel to the bedroom – where he would be with us. He found some sweet spots inside a cupboard that we vacated and a cardboard box. He slowly started walking the house and then came to us on his own.
My husband took his time to get adjusted to the kitten at home. But Marvel found his way into everyone’s heart. My husband was no exception. Now Marvel walks around like he owns the place. He demands attention when he wants it. Else he plays with his toys and sleeps when and where he wants. More often than not, he cuddles up next to us and sleeps during the day. He is happy to jump on my lap and ask me to massage him casually while he drifts off to what looks like a dreamless sleep. He knows that he has to sleep in his place in the night. He waits for me to pick him up in the morning and then gives me the warmest licks and snuggles up to me for two minutes before demanding food.
Marvel does not like to be alone. He makes sure that we are always in the room with him. He is a lot of fun to be around and brings us so much happiness and laughter. He’s a naughty one, always trying to climb anything he can. He’s full of life and adventure. And when he looks at you, you cannot help yourself. You will want to pick him up and cuddle him. ‘Course if you do not understand what he is trying to say, you will get it from him. He is very articulate in his own way.
Marvel is an excellent addition to my family. My kids help me take care of him. They clean his litter box, feed him and always keep an eye on him. He keeps an eye on us too. We are truly a family in every sense of the word.

Does Ranbir Kapoor expressing his preferences about Alia using lipstick really make him a toxic husband?
Sometime back, a video of Alia Bhatt with Vogue went viral where she shares her go-to make-up routine and her unique way to apply lipstick. It went viral not for the quirkiness but because she said that after applying the lipstick, she “rubs it off” because her then boyfriend and now husband – Ranbir Kapoor likes her natural lip colour and asks her to “wipe it off”, whenever they are out on a date night.
Netizens had gone crazy over this video, calling RK toxic and not respecting AB’s choice to wear makeup. I saw the video a couple of times to understand the reason behind the uproar but I failed to understand it. I read many comments and saw people saying that asking your partner or dictating terms on how they should wear makeup is a major sign to leave the person.
