Much to my 16 year old's dismay, we did not keep the orange & white one too. We live in a small house, and with 3 growing boys (4 if you count my husband), it just seemed like too much. I promised him that if we ever do get another cat, he will get to pick him or her out.
When we got Britney 7 years ago, it was with the understanding that I would not have to feed her or change the cat box as I am very sensitive to smells, and honestly, I could count on 1 hand how many times someone else has changed it. Thankfully, I found a fantastic kitty litter at Sam's Club that I swear I could go weeks without changing it (not that I would, but I could), and you would not smell a thing. There has been several instances where I have been hospitalized for a week or so, and of course, it's there waiting for me when I come home, and it is just amazing.
I was concerned with 2 cats that it wouldn't hold up to it, but it has.
I used to have a cat that if I scolded her for something that day, she would purposely pee somewhere that night after I went to bed! Cats are a lot smarter than a lot of us give them credit for!
One thing that Pheobe does that just cracks me up is she will crouch down real low on my bed and as Britney walks by, she tries to jump on her back and ride her like a horse! Thankfully Pheobe is so small that it doesn't hurt her, and Britney immediately dumps her off of her back, but I can't help but laugh - it looks so funny!
I have a big garden tub, and there are always things on the side. I had her water dish up there so that the dog wasn't always drinking all her water, and any time it was empty, Pheobe would knock it off of the side of the tub to let me kn
ow she wanted more. Well, she must have found it fun, so now anything she can knock off of there, she does! Several times a day!
Animals certainly bring a lot of joy and humor to our lives! I never considered myself an "animal lover" - but now I couldn't imagine life without them!
