Ok I admit it, I am a sucker when it comes to cats. I can't imagine anyone not loving them (Yes I know some of you hate cats). They are sweet and soft and pretty much take care of themselves. I would be lost without my babies, and my love for animals has passed on to my daughter. She adopted a kitty of her own a few months ago, and just couldn't stand the idea that her dad (my ex) did not have a cat. His died last fall, and she has secretly been thinking of replacing it for months. He had a birthday yesterday, so she started a few weeks ago looking around for a kitten. You would think that a kitten would be easy to find. Not so, at lest not in our area. She tired every pet store in town, No kittens, she called the local shelters, no kittens. The newspaper was no help, and most of the rescue places were a bunch of nutty people who wanted her to fill out an application, have a home study and get references before they would even talk to her. Can you imagine needing a home study to adopt a CAT. I've seen people adopt babies easier than you can adopt a cat in this area. Maybe it is due to P*TA (insert the letter E where the * is) headquarters being here (and they are a bunch of fanatics)but a kitten was not to be found. Finally late yesterday afternoon she was able to find one up for sale by a private owner and today this sweet baby came home to live with her dad.

This is Chico. Weird name for a cat, but he named her for a prostitute he use to know in Japan when he was young (before he met me). Yep, don't laugh. It is true, that was her name. The kitten is half Siamese and half Persian, eight weeks old and soooo soft and fluffy. He fell in love with her the minute he saw her and when I left his house earlier tonight she was sound asleep in his arms...
All together now...AWWWWWWWW

Wow, if only you lived in Bismarck. My sister tried to get rid of her cat's litter for months (she even kept two kitties). Finally, my niece put the ad on Bismarck-Mandan Online again - this time with photos - and they went immediately.

How I wish I could have a cat again, but Penny and Gracie would eat it alive.

If you go to my blog, you'll see I drool over cats... LOL I just love their independent and blasé attitude, but at the same time so sweet and melting. You know, in Portuguese, Chico is the diminutive for Francisco. Cute kitty! Have a great day! Kisses from Nydia.
