still, i really want another cat. when i saw a young calico named 'stacey' on petfinder, i figured it was a sign. eddie didn't see it my way.
sadly, i still spend my downtime at work browsing through the kitties on PetFinder and PetHarbor. it kills me when i see a cat that looks like suki, lucy, or even the kitten and get mew-y at how unfair it is they don't have homes. they could enrich someone's lives just as much as suki or lucy do ours... but they don't have a chance! sadness! really, the nights i don't stay at eddie's... well, i just can't imagine life without the girls.
and now my soapbox:
THERE IS NO GODDAMN EXCUSE FOR BUYING A DOG OR A CAT THESE DAYS! i've watched helplessly as friends, acquaintances, and family have purchased pets and/or bred them and it just astounds me. buying is stupid anyway! i mean, some people meet the animals at the store before they bring them home, but too many say, "It's a bulldog. My wife wants a bulldog. Ring me up." makes no sense to me! i mean, i understand the love for a breed.. but that's when you have to put a request in with the local shelter and be patient. and no breeding, dammit! i also understand the allure of kittens, but there is just no excuse.. even if you find homes for them, you're preventing other little animals from being adopted by families that want them.
odd looking cat. she's available for adoption at the humane society of the palm beaches, (561) 686-3663 if you're interested.
ed, in case you change your mind: i would love a little cow kitty (like the neighbor one who came in that night).. or a little white one.. or a little grey one.. or a calico.. or anything ugly enough that no one else would want it.. but really, i'd settle for any little cat who let me hold it. :)
too cute to be homeless!
