    Found her outside a Quick Check dumpster in much need of a home and some medical attention. She's five weeks old.

    She belongs to my mom now :)

    Not really but thanks, Im just a sucker for animals. Went in for coffee and came home with a kitty. She had Warble larva growing in her back due to bites from a Bot fly. So I took her home, gave her a bath, and took her to the vet for the removal of the parasites. She is soooo sweet, the minute my mom saw her I knew she would want her, she just had to talk my dad into it which wasn't too hard. I would have kept her if not. What's one more right? :)

    Don't you wonder about people who don't love animals?

    It's not anything that I can even remotely fathom. It's just part of my wiring to love and want to take care of animals I guess? I would think for most it would be instinctual but it's not.

    I feel the same way, Bonnie. It seems like it should just be a part of people's overall compassion, but so often it isn't.

    I have always said that a woman can find out a lot about a man by asking him if he likes cats. If he is allergic the test doesn't work but if he hates cats and especially if he likes the robot dogs like Labs, Dobermans, Rotweilers.... stay away. The typical reason he won't like cats is the fact that he has no control over them. He wants to control everything in life including you. Nothing wrong with the extra obedient dogs but added to the unreasonable hatred of cats and it is obvious there is a problem with independence in his possessions.

    I like independence myself whether it is in the dog I like, the Afghan Hound, I have two cats and prefer the same traits in women. Every guy I have known that hated cats was ridiculously controlling. What do you two ladies think?

    I don't know. I always say that those who don't like cats just haven't met the right cat . I've seen many cat haters 'turn' when they're introduced to the cat of their dreams, including women. :laugh:

    Wow that is a very interesting perspective that I had never considered.

    I think there is this misconception that cats don't want to be bothered and dogs are overly friendly and slobber all over you. I have found that every cat I have ever had has been friendly and very cuddly which I think is due in large part to how much love you give them as babies.
    But I love all animals, even lizards, or as my mom would say anything with a face and a mother :laugh:
