Hey guys! I guess an introduction is in order. My name is Kelsie, and what you guys should know about me is that I live at home with my parents and sister, and we've got two dogs and four cats, yes I said four cats, three of which are allowed to be around each other. Ok now that I've got that out of the way, on to what you all are hear to read about.
We've all been there—going out to buy your cat a new tower or scratching post, and then looking down at the price tag just to find you're looking at over $30 for a piece of wood and some carpet. Or maybe you want a few jingle balls for your kitty, only to look to see you have to spend $5 for just a few!
It was just a normal day. It was a Friday, I believe. My oldest daughter was spending the night at Grandma's and the youngest was still taking her nap. My boyfriend of nine years had told me over and over for nine years that we couldn't have a cat because he was severely allergic. I had my suspicions about this claim, as he frequently visited homes with cats and didn't have REALLY bad reactions.
I love cats. Cats are my version of babies. They are adorable, fluffy, and I'm basically obsessed with them because they are so incredibly cute. All cats have a special place in my heart, primarily because the cute factor makes my heart melt whenever I see them.
Cats are one of the cutest animals around and even if you're not the biggest fan of them, like me, you still can't help but adore the little things. Many of us assume that cats are pure evil that plot diabolical plans and use you for food and shelter. But actually, a lot of them are sweet and love their owners unconditionally. Shocking, I know.
When choosing a particular animal for one's child, it is important to note how each individual breed coalesces with the owner. When it comes to finding loyal and affectionate cats, this ideology can be a difficult contest, because there are innumerable varieties of breeds in America alone.
Shortly after we moved into our long awaited new home, my daughter started asking for a pet, so I thought we'd get a parakeet or two; it turns out, she didn't want birds or dogs; she wanted a kitten. I'd preferred dogs, but we began looking for kittens locally and at nearby Animal Shelters with no luck.
Oh. Hello. My name is inconsequential to you as I will never stoop so low as to respond no matter what you call me. However, the only human I actually care for uses the name Amy when seeking my glorious attention. I was told you were interested in learning about my life. A wise choice as I am the most interesting cat in the world. But, you already know that. That is why you are here. You wish to gain superior knowledge from the fountain of wisdom that is me. Where should I begin? Well, I had spent three years in and out of shelters when my current humans found me. I’m quite glad they did, to be honest. Shelters are awful places. Have you seen the strays that frequent those establishments? Certainly no place for an elegant and well-mannered feline such as myself. I was only ever there because I had to escape from all my other humans. I won’t get into why. It just wouldn’t be proper to discuss such matters.
When I was younger, I had a majorly bad allergy dealing with cats — but I loved them. In fact, I was obsessed with them. (I still am, so I like to think of my childhood as a moment of "Crazy Cat Lady" training time.) I wanted a cat so badly, but unfortunately, my allergies prevented it until my parents finally caved in.
I am an owner of a cat called Dante (which my vet tells me is quite a common name for a cat…who knew?!).
Most people barely know about regular cat breeds — and have no idea that exotic cat breeds even exist. The truth is that many cat breeds are extremely rare, or are mixed with cats that are found in the jungle.
Most people know a little bit about dog breeds. They can typically tell you what are the most popular dog breeds for families, which dog breeds are best for guarding locations, and which dog breeds shed the most. But, when it comes to cats, it's a totally different story.
