Let a cat adopt you!
Someone's careless loss may very well be your gain!
Okay, at first I wasn't so keen on cats! I grew up with two German Shepards. One morning, about 17 years ago, Pk showed up on our door stop, crying and wanting food. We fed her and my son wanted to keep her so I said yes. She really wasn't much trouble. She was pretty much a house cat. She didn't eat much and we put an automatic litter box in the guest bath tube, which we lined with plastic. About a year later I was made aware of a little kitten that was being fed by Joe Curtice, a kindly older black gentleman who fed any stray cat that showed up at work. I feared for the safety of this kitten because she was too trusting and not fearful of all the cars and trucks that moved about the premises. So after asking my wife, I brought her home. We named her Teeger and she has become our favorite cat. She has a very sweet disposition and had the unusual habit of sucking her tail in the morning. That brings me to Sammy our latest edition. I came across him one cold winters day. He was shaking on a piece of work equipment and was crying for food. The fact that he wasn't afraid showed me he was very hungry. I fed him my buffalo wings from my lunch and called my wife to see if I could bring him home. Like the other two cats we quickly got him fixed and had him get his battery of shots. We have a six foot fence in the back yard which keeps the females in, but Sammy, not so much!
Some of the advantages of owning cats is they generally eat less than dogs, they don't bark, they don't bite (unless picked up) ,they can be left at home with food, lots of water and an automatic litter box for at least three days! Cats seldom need a bath because they are constantly grooming themselves. They also cover their own fecal matter in the yard! If a cat starts to scratch the sofa this may be quickly remedied by quickly placing catnip on the desired card board scratching disk.
