LONDON – With these strong words and a pounding fist on the table, the marriage between Marlene Howes (67) and her husband came to an abrupt halt after almost 40 years.

For Howes, there is nothing more important than her 40 Persian kittens.
Howes’ mother used to breed Persians and when she lay on her deathbed in 2004, Marlene promised she would take over the family business and legacy.
Marlene spends about $US1,000 per month on cat food and supplies and admits she’s a slave to her kittens but ads she wouldn’t want it any other way.
“I do everything for my kitties,” says Marlene and she meant it. When her husband finally had enough of the fury critters taking over his home he slammed his fist on the table one breakfast morning and said: “Me or the cats? You must choose”.
For Howes the decision came quickly: her kittens come before anything and anyone, including her husband.
Howes says her kittens are spoiled rotten and she loves it that way. “They get the best food, sleep in the softest beds and are master and king of my home, the yard and the fields.”
“Nothing is more precious than my Persians,” says Marlene Howes. “They each got there own unique personalities!”
