I hear some of you humans call yourselves ‘cat people’, and prefer cats to people. I find this fascinating, because I’m a ‘people cat’ and prefer people to cats!
Unfortunately, I’m stuck in a shed with a bunch of cats at the moment. And although I tell them where to go all the time, they are still here. Clearly it’s up to me to get myself relocated to a more ‘human’ environment.
Having said that, the cats I room with at For the Cats’ Sake are a pretty nice bunch (for cats), and they put up with my tortoiseshell moods or tortitude, so I shouldn’t complain — but I do. I guess I’ve learnt all cats are not bad, and I’d be willing to share my human with one or two other cats, and maybe a dog. I was actually roughed up by some dogs, and that’s how I ended up here. Animal control picked me up and since then I even had someone adopt me and they were going to pick me up, but then never came… I just hope someone else will fall in love with me and really take me home next time.
