Hoping to Adopt...
I have come to realize that our cozy little apartment is a bit lonesome. There are the two of us... but something is missing. Could it be the pitter-patter of little paws???
Well, I am still trying to get the official "YES" from that wonderful boyfriend of mine... but I am fairly certain I'll get it. He is primarily worried about the money side of things... and we went to look at cat supplies today (food, litter box, scratching things, and got info on adoption fees) so he is feeling more secure.
I swear, I feel like a little kid again! "Pleeeeease can we get a kitty?! Pretty please? I'll be really good and I'll take care of everything I promise!"
Anyway, I am just so excited and I wanted to share. I know lots of vegwebbers have cats! J is a compulsive planner and I run on gut instinct alone... so if anyone has any advice (or awesome stuff about cats in general) that I can tell him I would greatly appreciate it. I so want to share my home with a furry little friend again! I have had dogs my whole life and I miss caring for an animal. It's that darn maternal instinct, I swear! Can't have babies right now, so I need a furry baby to love!
I just have to post this here. This is the way I feel lately after 6 years catless.
I couldn't live 6 years catless. I was losing my mind without *my* cats for a week at my parents' this summer (and they have a cat, though she's a pisser and is confined to the basement/garage/greenhouse/back patio... it's just not the same). I'm going home really early for Christmas this year cause my mom is having surgery, so the cats will come with me 2 wks early. I asked my bf if he'd be ok with out me for a few weeks until he meets me downstate for Christmas and he said yes... but do I have to take the cats?!?! He'll manage without me, but will be lonely without the kitties. lol.
I hope all works out and he gets to come live with you. I'm very partial to orange tabbies, as I am a proud momma of one myself. ;)
Oh jeana! What a cutie. I have a soft spot for orange tabbies too. My old man Nelson, rest his little kitty soul, was with me for 17 years and was the absolute best kitty ever. I love all my fur babies, but he was the baby!
Interesting tabby fact: 80% of all orange tabbies are males.
Yay! I've always wanted an orange tabby! :) Now I've got the orange baby I found in the street. He's groovy. We had the collar conversation too. I've got a royal blue collar for him now, but we were thinking purple (there wasn't anything small enough for him in purple). Though he's not been wearing anything for a few days because he keeps loosening it up when he wrestles with the other cats and his mouth gets caught and while he's ok, I'M traumatized. Heh.
Good luck with your visit!
This thread brough me to browse the London Ontario humane society website. They have pictures posted of cats that need homes... Look at the gorgeous babies!
There are so many more too. They're all so beautiful and need to come home with me.
Damn allergic roommates.
It always amazes me that anyone could give up an orange tabby! They are some of the most open, loving little creatures, even among cats. I'm sure that you and your new baby will get along quite well. Congrats!
Oooo, laurabs! Stop that!! You're making me want another kitty! Baguette looks so much like my Bella who was only with me for 2 months.
