Greg and I have been without a cat now for year and a half. Missy died in December 2008, and Buster died May 2006. I knew I didn’t want to rush getting a new cat, since my love was so intense for Buster and Missy, I couldn’t bare the thought of loving something new.
But we are cat people, and it was just a matter of time. Long story short…. This weekend we adopted a cat we had been visiting with for several months at a shelter. Her name is Clover and she is 6 years old, cute black and white cat.
I forgot what it was like to have a cat around the house. I little more work to clean, feed, and scoop the poop… but then there are the rewards. The purring, petting and playing… I could feel my blood pressure lower and felt more relaxed than I have been in a long time.
Clover will be our KC cat. We won’t make her travel back and forth. She seems to be settling in fairly well after a few days.
We thought we had lost her when we woke up the first morning… we couldn’t find her anywhere. Then we discovered her “safe spot”….. she still likes to go sit up high when we aren’t around. She is a "ceiling cat"... and I think we can accept that.
PS: I guess I am more than a "cat person"... I am a cat LOVER! I LOVE everything about cats... their face, the tail, the way they move, that purring.... just everything!
