That story really made me feel so much better today...I was a "Dog Person" for most of my life....about 8 years ago I found a cat outside of my apt. in the rain and cold and took her in...Then another one showed up...I took her in...I had already had one Giant Black male cat that I adopted from the Dumpster in Knoxville so I had a house full....One of the new ones got out for only one hour....ended up preggers. She had 4 kittens. I lived in a 2 BR apt. with my son so we were already tight....But I tell you what...those kittens and the older cats made me laugh and cry....They were wonderful.
Well, we had to find homes for the kittens and that was rough...But I still have the older 3...The male had cancer 2 years ago, but with surgery he did fine...cancer free!!!! The other ones have been fixed and declawed and are pretty good...I love them so much.
It hurts me to go to a shelter, but I am glad that you find the time to do it. More power to ya girl....
There will be a special place in Heaven for You......with a bunch of cats..
I hate Boats!!!!

That reminds me....My multi-colored female rescue cat was a ***** on wheels from day one...She would attack me in the middle of the night!! We were both sleeping and all of a sudden she would wake up and BAM, slash me in the face!! Me and my son would have to cover ourselves up when she went on a rampage....she would come after us...It was to the point that I was going to take her to a shelter...Seriously!!! I couldn't protect my other 2 cats, and they would all be squared off... in a triangle....growling....furr all puffed up....and hissing... We would laugh and then RUN for cover!!! Never could figure out what the deal was... My male black cat was fixed, but the other 2 females weren't...I couldn't afford it. And the TOMS that would stalk around the apt. Oh My Goodness!!! That was an ordeal..
In the morning we would wake up to fur all over the carpet in clumps....and the cats all hiding in different parts of the apt. Then we found out that we were moving into our new house with my mom. She didn't know about the cats and I was so scared.... Eventually it was ok. We ended up living across the street from a Vetrenarian and she found out about my male having cancer...I mean she diagnosed it. She did surgery, removed the bottom front part of his jaw, and he is purrrrfect today....but his tounge hangs out all the time like he's a little "retarted". And she declawed and fixed the 2 females for a very nominal amount of money.... She is great. Her name is Jane and I give her props...
anyway, that is my continued story...
