I don’t remember a time where I didn’t have a cat in our family. Since I was very little we have pretty much always had 2 cats in the family and my two cats have been mine since I was 15 years old.
They are a big part of our family. I have known them longer than my husband, my kids and nearly everyone else in my life. While they are old and I have to start thinking about it, I can’t really imagine life without them in it (but, that day is coming). Puppy and Ming-Ming are my constant companions and I love them as a family member.
It can be hard to understand the love a person has for a pet if you don’t have one yourself. It may seem like it’s just a cat to someone who doesn’t have cats, and while I can respect that you may not be a “cat person”, there are some pretty hard rules you must understand if you come over to my house and don’t like cats.
