I have always disliked cats. Ok I'm being nice when I say dislike. Nothing personal and I hope no one puts a hit out on me for saying this. I've always been a dog lover.
My husband and kids love cats. We have only had one over the 18 years. Not my choice it was a stray that adopted us. Not a problem we both just learned to live with each other.
I couldn't stand how they went in and out of your legs, they stare you down like they are going to eat you when you go to sleep and people say there are dependent BS they suck up all the attention they can get good or bad....lol
My doctor had brought up about getting a lap dog. Yes I have Elmer but hes to big, we have lady but shes annoying (boston terrier) she only wants her butt scratched all the time. That makes for a bad lap dog...lol
6 weeks ago at WalMart they were giving away kittens. My 16 yr old was driving me. She stopped. Sat there in the explorer and wouldn't budge, begging for me to at least look at them. Everyone on here knows by now my family is my world. I can't seem to let them be unhappy or upset. She said things like Please Mom, Comeon we have never really had a cat, I'll keep it in my room, I take care of it. Just wouldn't give it up...lol
I said yes!!!!!! Brought the cat home, you would of thought we were bringing home a new baby sister or something. Everyone was SOOOOOO HAPPPYYYYY mom agreed on getting them a Cat. My kids are almost adults and they were acting like 2 year olds.
Heres the catch. The CAT is now MINE. She kisses me all day long. She sleeps across my pillow. Shes always sleeping my my lap, across my arms or on the laptop while I type. She boxes me all day long without claws extended. So I have to say I love my kitten......
