Happy Monday, all. I made it back from Alabama and all is well. Unfortunately, I have no pictures to show you. No photo op presented itself while I was there this time, but maybe next time. I had fun and enjoyed seeing everyone. My back is better too - hope it stays that way.
I've decided I want a kitten. I had 2 cats (Purrl and Jozie) but when I had to move home with my mom a year and a half ago, I had to find a foster home for them because my mom is allergic to cats. Cassie, my friend and hair dresser, took them in for me even though she already had a couple of cats and dogs. I will always be grateful to her for this because I was really in a bind and I felt so horrible having to abandon my cats. She has had them over a year now and both she and her husband have grown quite attached to them. I asked her if she'd like me to take them back now since she has a new baby (a human baby this time) in the house, but I got the feeling from her response that she wants to keep the cats. I certainly understand and feel like it is only right, if she does want them, to let her keep them after this much time. I sure do miss them though. I visited them a couple of times within a few months of moving them to Cassie's and they acted like they were not the least bit interested in me anymore - snooty felines! Anyhoo, I'm wanting another kitty cat. I think Shotzie will like a cat too. I had her for a few months before our cats moved in with Cassie and she loved them. They, on the other hand, were not quite as crazy for her. I'm looking for a female, short-haired kitten with a sweet personality. Purrl was a long-haired calico and probably one of the prettiest cats I've ever seen. When she was a baby, she had gorgeous green eyes, but they finally changed to gold. Purrl was sweet as a baby but when she grew up, she was one snooty feline!Everything was on her terms and her terms ONLY. She was the first cat I ever had so I was new to the ways of a cat, but quickly learned, "every cat owner knows that nobody owns a cat!" :) Jozie was a year younger than Purrl and was a short-haired grey tabby. She was sweet as a baby and as an adult.One thing that bothers me is the way a house smells when cats live there. I kept my litter box clean but still had odor. I tried to potty train P and J but they wanted no part of it. I believe I could have eventually talked Jozie into it, but not Purrl. Anyway, I want a cat but I don't want a stinky house. If any of you have any sure-fire remedies for a smelly cat house, please advise, and wish me luck in my search for a new kitty.
