I posted earlier about our dear sweet young Kitty passing away unexpectedly two weeks ago. I am still heart broken. This weekend I plan on visiting a high kill shelter in the area and adopting a new cat. There isn't an animal on this planet who will fully take Kitty's place but I feel it's time. Kitty was my therapy cat and really helped me through some pretty bad anxiety episodes. Our other cat Lily, who doesn't like to be bothered with, just doesn't do it for me. I know Kitty was incredibly sweet and affectionate and I will probably not find one just like her, but I'm hoping to find an kitty close enough to how Mandy was. Dear sweet Mandy used to take baths with me every morning and every night. She would actually sit on the bathtub to be right near me. Sometimes she would even crawl on my chest, sit there and let me pet her while I was in the tub! She also kept me company many restless nights when I couldn't sleep. She would sleep right on my pillow with her head on my head. I miss her so much. I had no idea how helpful she really was until I lost her. I am going to the shelter on Saturday and if I don't bond with a kitty I will sadly leave empty handed. This is a pretty big shelter so hopefully that won't happen. My boyfriend's good friend had a cat who had kittens and we were planning on taking the last one they had left. My boyfriend drove an hour out of his way to see the cat and test it's personality. The cat would not let him pick it up and ran away when he tried to pet it. Then the cat scratched and bit him once he finally got ahold of him. I don't want an aggressive kitty in the house with my kids and Lily so I told my boyfriend forget it we would not take the kitten. Now I am going to try and find a sweet kitty on Saturday and I hope I find the right fit. Wish me luck!
