Aw, I'm sorry for your loss. Sounds like you made her a good happy life.

Oh, ain't it the truth! I never thought cats were anything special 'til I was 27 and moved in with a housemate who had two. After living with them for more than a year, I knew I had to have my own next time out. And I did.

Kitten Boy and Kitten Girl changed my life and gave me incredible love. Kitten Girl, as nearly 17, still is.

Lets see our clowder would recommend any breed as long as kitty is a rescue. It is so great that you are thinking of saving 4 kitties! The 2 you adopt will make room for 2 more in rescue. That is how it works. Wonderful.
Over the years we have had our own Pandoras who lorded over our dogs with velvet paw. Thanks for taking us down memory lane.
So purrs of support in your loss.
May you find a new fur who will not replace but will bring new adventures.


I always wondered where it comes from this dog instinct to catch a cat?

Very sad she is not with you. I can understand your feeling. We cannot ignore the spending time even with the pets also.


I always think people who say cats aren't good pets just haven't met the right cat. I often hear of people who weren't cat people becoming totally enthralled with them once they meet that one special cat that is meant to be in their life.

One of my friends was never a cat person until she got a cat for her daughter who was. The cat only had eyes for my friend and she got completely hooked. Now she shares her life with 3 and will talk endless about them. People just need to take the time to get to know a great cat.

Awwww love this. I have many friends with cats and love them all to pieces... the friends and their kitties. You have a big heart, Yvonne.

The Musings Of A Crazy Cat Lady

Everything you wrote is so true and needs to be said over and over until non-cat people understand. My Bobbi Frances was with me for over 16 years, and although she's been gone for almost 10 years, I miss her every day. She was the love of my life. What Caren wrote is so true - your next kitty will choose you. Rescued cats are the most appreciative. No matter who comes home with you, I'll look forward to hearing all about him or her.

ohhhh I soooooooooooooo loved this!!
you don't have to worry about what type of cat you will choose......YOU won't be choosing it, the CAT will choose YOU!!!

My beloved Bobo used to greet me at the door every night, he was the "only" pet I had for 18 wonderful years. If I worked late and came home when it was dark, I had my light on an automatic timer, he would religiously be in the window with his little silhouette of his head and kitty ears glowing in the window....he was my "SOUL KITTY"....cats are sensitive, loving, mystical and DELIGHTFUL!
