Not everyone wants a cat.
Even if people might think they want a cat, it is not easy to take care of a cat. Now, before you pick up your pitchfork and come after me for spewing this heresy, the fact is that cats are nothing like dogs. But when people think about pets, they think about their pet following them around or constantly asking for pets. However, there is also the other extreme end where people think cats always mind their own business and they decide to get cats because they are hassle-free.
Although none of these extremes are true. Most cats fall somewhere in the middle. They actually do want affection and some cats will follow you around while others might just roam around your house all the time. My cat, for example, loves to spend his time on my lap and wants constant pets. I also know of cats who don’t like to be touched most of the time. All of that to say that cats can be quite moody but any cat owner would tell you that it is worth it in the end.
#1 There were many twists and turns when it came to Lenox.
Found Lenox cause he would always rub against me whenever I would walk by the parking lot of Lenox Avenue. Finally took him to the vet and found out:
1) He actually is chipped and the previous owner is not answering the vet’s calls.
2) he was actually a girl the entire time.
3) she is now mine.
#2 This is such an adorable story.
My darling Finley who followed me home on a night I came home crying and lonely. After a little bit of kitty time, I tried to go inside, and he walked in the door and flopped on my rug. It’s now his house. (Yes, I had him checked for a chip and vet-checked and officially adopted him.)
#3 Who wouldn’t give up their life for their pet? I know I would.
Pokey appeared and walked into my house around the start of 2015, and was most likely left behind by some neighbors who moved away. She was cold, scared, and in urgent need of food and love. She’s been with me through break ups, college, and marriage, and I would die for her.
#4 She knew that she had found her forever home.
This was not our cat, she appeared on our deck and followed us inside. We posted online and checked for a chip no one answered and she has no chip. She never tries to get back outside and is now our cat.
#5 This kitty didn’t have a home but found one at last.
#6 The doggo is the one who adopted this kitty.
#7 This kitty knew this particular family will take care of her kittens.
Honestly, I have always said that cats adopt us rather than the other way around. There is a reason here is a whole subreddit called ‘My house, not my cat.’ It seems sometimes you will see a cat in your house and you usually have no idea where it came from or whose cat it is. Sometimes the cat will stay at your home and other times it will leave after giving birth. You never know when it comes to cats but that is half the fun of it all.
#8 Both of these look like two different cats.
This cat kept putting himself in a humane trap every day at an old abandoned train station. Nowmycat 2 years later.
#9 He has chosen this person.
I moved in with his mama a year ago. Now he won’t cuddle with anyone else. Guess he’s Now My Cat.
#10 Cats just love to bite fingers no matter what.
Showed up in my parent’s backyard almost two years ago and was so starved I could almost touch my fingers together under his spine. Meet O’Malley the Alley Cat, eater of fingers and king of lounging on his back with his junk on display.
#11 Animals really are priceless.
She walked into my garage in 2020, ended up falling in love. She was only worth a flat screen to the prev owner, she is priceless to me now!
#12 Bihan is truly gorgeous.
This 13 pound boy showed up on my porch this winter. I looked for his parents (without success) and took him to the vet for bloodwork and his asthma attacks. I’ve been adopted. His name is Bihan.
#13 asper now owns this particular couch.
#14 Headbutting one’s hand is the most powerful way of showing affection.
Not my cat has now become my cat. Decided to name him Toast after he spent 2 hours sleeping on my couch. Headbutt my hand yesterday and let me scratch his head. Seems to like the little nook I set up for him today.
