Is it time?

I’m thinking about adopting another kitty.

Part of me wonders if I’m not rushing things too much because Miss Phoebe has only been gone about a month. And I worry that my parents and their health issues may require me to spend more time back home.

I also worry about my heart.

But all this is me borrowing concern about a future that isn’t certain at all. And there are cats in shelters that could use a forever home.

And I’m so terribly lonesome without a little cuddle buddy.

So I’ve taken the first steps– I started doing research on adoptable cats in the Minneapolis area. Unfortunately there are many, and it makes me so sad to see so many animals waiting for a home. I wish I could adopt them all.

There are a few that I think could be good fits. Some are adult cats that have been declawed. One is a 2 year old cat (with claws) but he might do best with a companion animal.

Part of me is also thinking about getting 2 cats, one being an older, surrendered cat so I can give it a comfortable life and love.

So many choices, it hurts my heart.

    It is always ill-advice to pretend to give “advice” to someone, but here are my two cents from personal experience. If you feel the need, it probably “is time” for you to open hour heart to a cat (two cats?). Visit them at the shelters and you will know.
    As for numbers… well, the husband and I have crossed over into “crazy cat people” a while back. We have four (had five until last month, in fact) but that is not for everyone. We also live in a bungalow with a fenced-in backyard where two of our cats can go safely, not a small urban condo. I have found that having at least two cats keeping company with each other when the humans are gone for long days at work seemed to do great for their own balance and happiness. But go with your heart. You will know. And yes, there are soooo many of them out there, needing love.

    Our cat Angie we adopted at 3.5 years old. She’s now 15 years old. Not a typical cat – you can tell she wasn’t played with as a kitten as she doesn’t know how to hunt. Something our previous cats, all adopted as kittens were taught with busy balls, catnip stuffed mice, etc.

    But she can be a very sweet cat.

    I have never understood people thinking they need to wait a respectable amount of time after a beloved pet dies to adopt another. Yes, take a little time to grieve, but what better way to move beyond the grief than to provide a safe, loving home to another pet in need?!?! You will know when you’re ready, and since you’re thinking about it I’m guessing your ready.

    Adopt a single cat, or possibly a bonded pair. From my experience having 2 isn’t much different than having 1 with the exception of the vet costs. So treat a kitty or 2 in need of a home, and treat yourself to lots of unconditional love!
