No this has nothing to do with food, unless we're talking cat food. I cannot remember a time in my life except when I lived in a dorm at college when I did not have a cat in my life. Even then, I had a cat at home and I would yell his name out first
thing when I came in the door for a visit. I know there are people who aren't cat lovers. That's okay. I'm not a dog lover so it evens out. I don't understand how people cannot love cats but again, that's okay. June is Adopt a Shelter Cat Month. I can't
go to animal shelters. I would be too tempted to bring home all the animals, including the dogs. Those sad faces and the love that appears when you show interest is too much for anyone to bear.
I have two cats that we've rescued from our local flea market. Both were destined for the local shelter had they not been adopted. Both were in horrible shape with all sorts of creeping critters and other assorted ailments and required immediate veterinary
attention. But both are doing well today and bring much joy to our lives. I would have a houseful if I could but I'm afraid that even though my husband loves me and my cats, that would be too much.
Please take a moment and see if you have room in your life for a special four-legged friend who needs your attention. I think the next one I get is going to be a special needs kitty.
My Booger Boy - and he earned that name.
