Sorry to get to this party so damned late, but better late than never. Congrats on that adorable little moggie, and I hope your owners ASSociation leaves her alone...
I'd like to hear how she's working out for you. I'm looking at getting my first ever cat, and I'd like to see how things go with yours.
Again, TB, congrats
; I'm very happy for you!
First off, to cod: Yeah, "no dogs allowed," but that restriction may be changing soon. In the event of that happening, I'll have a cat and dog as well, no question.
Mort: It's been amazing, and again, I'm grateful. Adopted at the age of 8, Izzy doesn't scratch either us or the furniture, plays like a kitten when she's in the mood, and is easily one of the sweetest creatures I've yet to know, flopping on her back for a rub and purring constantly like a motorboat. Cripes, she doesn't even have the slightest litter box smell, which is sort of a miracle in and of itself.
I'd post another photo but I don't wanna come off like the old ladies you see at the dog run with the cocker spaniels on their sweaters, but allow me this: I don't know what we've done to have two pets that have been so incredibly amazing one after the other, but the past 20 year period has been a revelation for me. In the past, I could take animals or leave them; now, I can't imagine life without them. Blame the missus.
