Countertop Cat That Chews
May 2, 2018 5:20am CST
I have been "thinking" about getting another cat for our household. Little Miss would love a kitty. Positive that Dusty would like a playmate too. Our local shelter is having an event on the 10th where an agency will give you $50 toward the adoption fees of any pet they have available. I may take Little Miss to the shelter this weekend to check out the kitties and see if any tug at my heartstrings. I was offered a young neutered male cat yesterday. One of my clients has one that they took in. He is a gentle cat, and took to me quickly. However, he was never trained to stay off the counters and tabletop. And I learned that he chews on houseplants. Last night I mentioned this cat to my husband. He didn't say anything about it. Not sure he is completely sold on the idea of getting another cat. I'll give it another week before I completely decide. Time may change my mind.

So I'll be looking forward to discovering whether or not you get another cat. Is Dusty good with Little Miss? Not all cats are very patient with children. I had a cat I could dress up and take for walks in the pram but not all cats tolerate such nonsense.

Dusty has always been a cat that loves to play. When our 2 older cats were with us, she would often try to get them to engage in play. Right up to Benta's last days, Dusty tried to get her to play. Poor old gal would growl and hiss at her something awful. LOL.

My son Elijah wants a cat so bad he can taste it. He has been watching YouTube videos of cute cats and baby kittens being fed by a bottle. He is in love with the idea of raising a baby kitten this way. I am allergic to cats and both of the twins, Elijah and Adam have allergies and asthma. I don't think its a good idea for our household but my husband has promised Elijah a cat for his birthday in October. I am dreading the outcome. Good luck with your decision.

@ElusiveButterfly There are a lot of considerations to getting a new cat. You could try stuffed. They're no clean-up, you don't need to feed them, and they can be played with by the hour without a murmur or complaint.
