Our little kitty is adapting pretty well. We still keep her upstairs for the most part...but there are plenty of places for her to explore, play and rest. She is being spoiled...by me...with a new toy whenever I go out to the store. She still has her claws, but I made an appointment for her Friday to get her front ones out. I still wonder if I am doing the right thing...but she has really left some painful scratches on me. I know she doesn't mean to and she is just being affectionate...but with my aging skin being so thin and sensitive....I feel like I may have to. She has scratching post and most people think those should be enough...but those thumbs. (?) ..those are really sharp and long.
After the fight with the neighbors about the cats...I decided to call animal control and go ahead and trap the others that were outside. I left the two that she owns for her to deal with. Animal control works with them and if they are able to tame them...finds them homes with the help of the Humane Society and Pet Finders...maybe a few more organizations. I know we bought our last dog, Clifford, through Pet Finders. He was pretty much a perfect dog for us for many years. A real member of our family. His lose was very very hard on me. I really did not want another pet to become attached to at our age....but...this little kitten stole my heart once again. Something I really did not consider though...is that she could live 20 years and in 20 years we will be 80. Well.....that is a depressing thought...but we never really know what the next day will bring us...much less the next 20 years. Que Sera Sera.....
Waterpool seems to love everyone though. If you pet her gently she is in heaven....
Superbowl day....blah. Don't care for football. But I know there are lots of people who do! So hope your team wins!
PS...still working on my election for President. Ha
