I was never a cat person. Really wasn't. I'm all about having a yellow lab some day. We raised Labs as working dogs. (Well, my dad did until we pampered the heck out of them.)
Only 2 cats I ever cared about Tammy Fay Baker .... shortened to Baker once I learned HIS true identity. Don't know his history or his age. Homely son of a gun. Interesting how he came to adopt me as his human. Awesome shelter cat .... good mouser, great companion. Big fat orange sloth. Rest in peace .... the chipmunk tricked you. I know the truth.
Current cat. Cannot get close enough to you. She acts like a puppy. Hikes through the woods with me. Sprawls out against my back at night. My biological heating pad. My living shawl. I just learned that she likes my chili. That's cool!
(Nice thing about cats is that you can leave them for a weekend, unlike dogs where you have to stop home before you go out.)
