A new kid in the house

8-25-10 hairball brain
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!


  1. Oh my gosh Judy! She is so cute! Too bad she is only ypur KC cat - I would love to see her. I'm going to take the plunge next week. I really miss havinfg a cat around. I just hope Roo accepts it. He's my worry. Congratulations!! Kelley

  2. Ha! I can't believe she got up there! That's hilarious. Cats are so sneaky the way they can find hidden places. Clover is a cute cat, and a cute name. And my Bishop is trying to get in my lap on the porch right now . . .

  3. Ruth, Clover came with that name. Jumping on kitchen counter, to top of frig, up to top of cabinets! Freaked us out.... but cats do like to climb. Kiss to your cute Bishop!

  4. The funny thing is that Clover was probably watching you look for her all over the house.

  5. Cats are wonderful! I'm sorry to hear about the loss of your other babies, but you can never love too many cats. I'm happy that you adopted another, because I feel a house is empty without a cat :-)
    Our cat jumped to the top of the cabinets too, I had to take a photo because I couldn't believe she was up there, lol!
