    I am sad to learn the county animal shelter where I live does not house or adopt out cats, only dogs.

    Cuyahoga County Animal Shelter

    There's a shelter in the city next to me that offers kitties, but they want $75 for one to defray the cost of vet care, etc. This is more than I had budgeted.

    I'm frustrated because I had wanted my daughter to help me choose the new kitty, but I am blown away that there is not even a humane kill service for area cats. I know Cuyahoga County is on the ropes financially and that homeless dogs can pose a risk to humans, but still......

    Makes me very, very sad.

    That's because cats are communists.

    No no no. They were worshiped as gods in Egypt, and they've never let anyone forget it.

    Petfinder.com led me to CODA (Cleveland Ohio Dog Advocates); their adoption fee for a cat is $100. I don't mean to be critical of these groups....but gheesh, how do they avoid kills if their fees are so high? Brooklyn Animal Shelter wants $75 for a cat.

    I guess I can check the classifieds for "free to good home" but I had wanted to see several kitties at once and let the kidlet choose one....o, well. I am sure one way or another, I'll get a cat.

    T'aint like I'm hoping for a pony....or a unicorn.

    I ♥ mastiffs, Big Fitz. But my housing association only recently allowed cats and still does not allow dogs, alas.

    I may be more of a kittay person, anyway. I had one in college (Otter) and then another as a young married woman (Prissy) but the babygirl turned out to be allergicky, so I have been cat-deprived for many years. After she left for college, I was traveling so much I didn't think owning a cat again would be kind.

    And now the Fates have aligned......

    Just remember, cats can learn to travel well. Just like dogs. We snuck one of our cats in to Disney World once. Okay Okay, it was Fort Wilderness, but we couldn't kennel him! And other than his fight with an armadillo, he loved to travel.

    And yes, I am a mastiff fan. I don't think I'd own another breed. It's just too bad they're incorrectly labeled 'vicious' in MN. The retards. I wish I could afford another one. I miss my Daisy.

    There are some closely-related breeds, Big Fitz. I am bumfuddled as to why anyone would have labeled a mastiff "vicious". It had to be a puppy mill or a misunderstanding based only on their size...like almost all the giant dogs, they have a rep as calm and kindly doggies.

    How's about......

    Tibetan Mastiff?

    Neopolitan Mastiff?

    French Mastiff?
