lamarca BS: cats (54* d) RE: BS: cats 22 Nov 02


We had our Old Lady as an "Only Cat" for 13 years, and travel arrangements for us were always difficult. We had good friends who were willing to come and house sit while we were gone, so the cat wouldn't be lonely (did I mention that she was a bit spoiled?) After Val died this spring, we decided to adopt two cats rather than one so they would be company for each other when we were at work or travelling. Now we can just ask a friend or pet-sitter to go over and give them food and water and do the litterbox chores, without worrying about their mental health, too!

I've never understood people who look at pets (be they cats, dogs, gerbils, etc) as easily replacable items, rather than another living, feeling soul, who is entitled to a lifelong committment of care. A living creature is NOT a toy - if you can't handle the responsibility, you shouldn't "own" one..
