I’ve been living the life of a solo cat for going on four years now. It’s a good life, but I’d sure love to have a kitten of my own to play with sometimes.
Here’s the deal, though. I’m a good cat. I mean I’m a REALLY good cat. I know what I’m allowed to do and what I’m not and I usually follow the rules. I don’t get on tables or counters and I don’t bother people for bites of their food (I don’t care for people food at all). I scratch my scratching things and not furniture. I come when I’m called (unless I’m busy). And I ALWAYS use my litter box. Brush me and I’ll be your friend FOREVER! Another thing that I’m good at is being company. You can take me to a hotel, or someone else’s house and once you show me where my litter box, my scratching things, and my food bowl are, I remember, and I use them. I’m kind of more like a dog than a cat when it comes to these sorts of things actually. But most cats aren’t. And my Mom travels a lot. And sometimes she’s gone for a long time. I’m welcomed at other people’s homes because I’m so good.
If I was to get a cat of my own, it might not be as good as I am.
We asked Mike (who is going to let me stay at his house when my Mom is in Malawi this summer) if I got another cat would he be willing to let us BOTH stay, and he said “Yes”!
So, do I get a cat of my own and hope that it is as good as me? Or do I not chance it? What if the new kitty pees everywhere, scratches furniture, and climbs on tables and stuff. That’d be bad!
Dilemma! What to do, what to do???
