Since I bought the condo last summer, I’ve been considering adding a cat - I was put off in my last apartment by the high pet deposit ($500/animal plus pet rent).
Yesterday, I went and met a cat who’s fostered through one of the local animal organizations. She was sweet, but we didn’t click. I thought about it overnight, but she didn’t feel like mine.
This morning, I went to the county animal shelter to see what they had for cats. This lovely fellow started talking to me as soon as I walked in and just begged to be petted. We went into the little room to get to know each other and he attached himself to me. Not with claws, just right there with me. He’s 3 years old and super sweet. He’ll be coming home Wednesday after work, and I’m looking forward to him experiencing the giant window in my living room that gets sunshine all afternoon.
Also, I wish he was here now.
