If you follow me on Facebook, you know I adopted a cat recently. After Suki’s death, I couldn’t think about getting another pet, but after months of being alone during the pandemic–not even visiting friends–I needed a companion.
I didn’t want another dog, though. Suki was perfect. I still can’t imagine “replacing” her with another canine.
So I thought about getting a cat. I’ve had them before and enjoyed them, so I kept my ears and eyes open. I eventually connected with someone on the local intranet, who was fostering a mother cat and her many kittens. She’d been a pregnant stray, was taken in by a local rescue group, then fostered at someone’s house.
Long story short, I decided to take the mother cat home, and now she lives with me. She’s between three and four years old and has been spayed, gotten shots, and was treated for parasites.
See you next time.
