Doggies and Kitties
Nov. 2nd, 2005 @ 09:02 am
I've been thinking for a while about wanting a cat... or maybe a dog... especially since Craig was considering a roommate that had a cat, and was willing to accept it (with some requirements). The idea of having two kitties just makes me happy...
Last night, I had a dream (and I NEVER remember my dreams) where I went to a donation center and let all of the puppies and kitties out, and let them come to me... and there was this little grey striped kitty that crawled up on me and was a cuddly and playful... and then a miniature puppy beagle came up too and then they started playing together and suddenly I was at home and they had a bed in the corner of the living room, and were curled up together napping. It was the sweetest thing in the world... and I suddenly had this terrific sense of satisfaction with life. I actually felt wonderful, just watching them.
I think I need to consider pets.
Your place certainly is big enough for two cats. But do bear in mind that if you ever plan on moving, having a pet limits your choices somewhat. Lots of apartments don't allow cats.
we would love another pet. but our cat is only a people person.
I have a lovely cat, but he's my dependent, which means I can't travel for more than a weekend without making boarding arrangements for him. Of course, if you never travel, or have roomies who will do the nasty things required (e.g. clean the catbox), then it's OK.
Also: they shed their hair on everything.
I <3 dogs... much more than cats. I live with two remember? Yeah, their litter box is right next to my room. Nuff said.
i vote kitty.
although i personally prefer not to own animals... too much smell, fur, allergies, bodily functions. :-p

Give it some thought
I "inherited" a cat named Mousetrap
and he was a wonderful cat / pet / partner. He was a guy's cat: Some cats hide when visitors come by - Mousetrap
would mingle. Some cats mince on silent cat feet, but Mousetrap
would strut. When it came time to move back to California in '99, the one condition was that Mousetrap
would come with me.
Alas, he died, quite suddenly, shortly after mom fell. The house was too quiet and I adopted Lily
shortly thereafter. An entirely different personality. Although her 'rap sheet' from the shelter suggests that she is a one-cat sort of cat, I can see that she needs something to do during the day so I am contemplating a second cat to keep her company.
I can offer little - I am not a wealthy man and never will be. But if I can share my home with a cat or two then I consider myself wealthy indeed.
