    All of our animal companions have either been strays or shelter animals – every one of them has been a wonderful loving addition to our lives. As we live in the boondocks I don’t see any strays – once in awhile I see a neighbor’s animal – also an adopted cat. Gotta love ’em!!!

    I am so happy for all of you. I got my Pretty Boy 5 years ago when my brother died after a few months hospital stay. He was a one man cat and always lived outside. When I trapped him in a Have A Heart trap, he hated me. But he had no where to go, no one to feed him, he was sick, and coyotes were closing in. Also his personality was so bad that he would never ingratiate himself to another person. So he came to live with me and for 8 months he snarled and lived mostly under the bathroom sink and only came out at night to eat and poop in a litter box. Then he noticed that if I went away, he only had dry food and no one talked to him. He also began to realize that he liked to feel safe and be petted. Now he is my best boy. Cats pick you for a reason.

    What a handsome boy! I admire cats from afar as I’m allergic, but I do contribute to the local Alley Animals for their dedication to providing food, care, and TNR for the cats. You are doing a wonderful thing.

    He is all fluffy goodness and I don’t know how you could resist burying your face in that soft, warm sleepy fur.

    When I got my baby. I asked to see the kitty that had been at the shelter the longest thinking they would take me to an elderly, antisocial kitty who I was prepared to take home. Instead, they took me to the most gorgeous, social, playful girl who had been there 7 months because she is black. Superstitions I guess. I figure I just won the lottery and it’s everyone else’s loss. I adore my kitty who hauls around pot holders and taps me to get pets. She’s the best!

    Victoria, I am glad you and Paul have a new cat friend who will be staying with you forever! <3 I cannot agree more about dryer sheets and all these perfumed things ~ makes my asthmatic life a living nightmare going to work. The teacher I worked with in CA loved having Febreze in our classroom because, yes, 6th-8th graders sometimes smell. Lol! It was only really bad during winter when we were enclosed in the classroom. Whiteboard markers are also horrible! I'd take chalk any day…

    Happy your fur bud is indoors now. I shared your story on Twitter and of course your new kitty went to my Animal Friends board. <3

    Blessings and hugs,
    Barb 🙂

    Victoria, I’m so glad this post came to my attention via Twitter just now. Cats and the neurotoxicity of household chemicals/fragrances are two of my favorite topics! 🙂

    Victoria, I’m glad I saw this post on Twitter. Two of my favorite topics – cats and neurotoxic petrochemicals! 🙂

    I adopted a feral kitten four years ago from a shelter and this May I adopted a “mouser” cat from people who were moving. Despite being told the mouser cat was an outside 60/indoor 40 cat who liked to catch mice, she has to interest in outdoors and prefers lolling around inside. The “feral” kitten is very lively and affectionate and wants to go outside. Adopt don’t shop,

    I foster cats through our local rescue organization. I cannot tell you the number of times I have seen a cat “say” no thank you to one potential adopter and a resounding yep, this is who I want, to someone else. They really do choose their “furever” home/owners (staff). I would say that Mister Cat knew exactly what he was doing 😸

    We adopted our cat man Walli from a campground last year. His mama moved his three siblings and never came back for him. We really admired his spunk and he was determined to go home with us. As he was living in a covered area that housed lawn mowers and golf carts we could not say no to this little bundle of fur. Even though it was challenging to take care of such a young kitten ( he was about 5 weeks) and a very ill black lab who was weeks away from passing, we don’t have any regrets. He is my husband’s best friend. It’s so much fun having such a lively character in our home after caring for ailing animals. And he has ver similar markings as your Mister Cat! Our house would be a lonelier place without him!

    Our man Domino chose us, too. He appeared on our porch one day, began sleeping there each night and, of course, we started feeding him. He was so loving from the very first. We checked out every way we knew to find owners but to no avail. One day we swept him up and took him to the vet to be checked out. He was not chipped so he became ours (and an inside kitty) from that day on. He is a big black and white long-haired, tuxedo boy with the sweetest personality ever, very mellow, laid-back, bundle of love and cuddles. We feel so lucky he picked our porch as his sleeping place.
