Are you a cat person or a dog person? I considered myself a devoted dog diva until I was owned by a cat ( You can’t really own a cat…).
Mitty, named after “Mittens” in Beatrix Potter’s books, definitely cannot be owned!
She purred so loudly when I held her in my arms, the first time, over 9 years ago. Mitty was a kitten who had been rescued from off the streets by the SPCA.
Her loud purring captured my heart. The markings on her nose reminded me of our late cat, who had owned us for over 20 years.
Our old cat, Kitty, was the darling that won me over to the cat kingdom. Mitty, however, turned out to be rather aloof.
She does not like to be held for more than 7 seconds. My children have received scratches and bites to prove this point!
But we still love her. Cats may not always run up and greet you like a dog, with their tail wagging and tongue hanging out…
Instead, in their dainty way, they look up from their lounging position as if to say: ” Don’t worry… be happy!”
Cats are right. Just watching them lowers our blood pressure.
Felines don’t need to be taken for a walk. If they think they need more calories, they’ll supplement their diet with rodents. Having a cat in the garden keeps the rabbits away ( Unless the rabbit’s name is Peter…).
So, are you thinking I’m now a cat loving convert?
No way! I love my cats and dogs equally. They are all members of our family. Pets give us more opportunity to love and be loved. How good is that?
All you dog lovers may want to check out your local animal shelter. I hear a cat calling your name…
I’ve been writing since I could hold a pencil. When I see a picture… I also hear words. My blog is where I write them down.
