I Love Cats!


I love cats! Not that I dislike other creatures, I love animals four-legged and two. I can do without the snakes and spiders, though I know they have their role, just not around me, please.

Since I was small the soft warm fur of a kitten or cat has always given me such pleasure. I'd tell you the name of my first cat but then you would know the secret passwords to several financial accounts.

When I was a young child our cats were not spayed or neutered so our poor mother cats had litter after litter of kittens. I loved babying the kittens, until mama cat would carry them away to a new nest I couldn't find. My mother taught me the importance of caring for the mama cat and bring her treats since she was the one doing the hard work. Mama cat was so appreciate of attention, she cooed, purred, arched her back, and dug her claws into the bedding.
