Growing up I had always dreamed of having my own apartment and having my own pets to love and take care of. I had never lived in a house without a pet, so when I moved into my new apartment I knew having a pet was a must. Unfortunately my landlord would not allow dogs, so I settled for a cat. Who knew I’d end up with three! The day they came home I was filled with joy and excitement. I knew my daughter would be overwhelmed with joy once she knew we added three new additions to the family. The kittens’ fur was as black as the night sky and was soft and silky. As I gazed into the new kittens eyes, which were as blue as a cloudless sky, my heart filled with happiness. My daughter named them Mollie, Marcie, and Mittenz. My daughter and the cats seemed to get along very well; no matter how much I observed her torturing them, dragging them around the house, as if they were lifeless stuffed animals. Those poor cats took my daughter’s “abuse” and just allowed her to continue to carry them. Although there were times they set limits with my daughter and made sure to let her know when enough was enough. As the months flew by I was lucky enough to watch these two intelligent cats perform amazing tricks and out-smart me in many ways, which amused me the most. If I left any food out, I would expect within minutes for the food to be eaten. If I took food out to thaw, I would come home to find the food in the middle of the floor with miniscule teeth marks all through out the package

About two years ago my sister had taken in a dog named Morgan. At first I didn’t exactly agree with this because she already had a dog that she hardly took care of. When my sister brought Morgan home she was about two months old. I could still hold her in on had. And as I spent more time with her, she became my baby.
Numerous people have pets that accompany them through life. Cats, rabbits, birds, and dogs are popular household pets. They keep their human owners company and quickly become part of the family. Owners refer to them as their "children," and younger kids in the family consider pets to be their "siblings." Immediately, an unbreakable bond is formed between pet and owner. Cuddling with dogs or cats seem to cause stress to disappear. Everything seems to be okay when a dog or cat sits on your lap. There is a lot of love there. Additionally, dogs seem to be the most popular pets, although I do know lovely "cat people." Actress Maggie Lawson, (Psych) knows all about dogs, how they are our best friends, and why we should all love them.
One June 23rd we said goodbye to Miss Kermit, who the vet believed was suffering from liver cancer. The outward signs of her decline seemed rapid, as the green collar she wore so well became loose in a matter of a few short weeks. This beautiful mostly black cat with gorgeous emerald green eyes enjoyed lots of her favorite baby food on Sunday, but by Monday had no interest in food. We worried as she went off to the vet, and were deeply saddened when the news came.
By October 2012, a woman by the name of Jennifer Conrad, a professional exotic veterinarian, has released a documentary that has opened the eyes of many cat owners around the world. In this
I never wanted a cat, a dog maybe, but certainly not a cat. Their beady little eyes staring right into my soul, their claws looking like something out of a Tim Burton movie, dirtied from walking around in their own excretion and their matted fur clumping up in my hand with every stroke. “Rawr, hissss,” sounds that swirled my brain every time I came close to these feline “friends.” Cats and I didn’t mix. We were like olive oil and water. My sister, on the other hand, loves all animals. She is like Magenta from Sky High; animals scurry around her like she is their mother. She had begged my mom for a cat since the day she was born and my mom finally caved, to my dismay. One day, I came home from gymnastics practice and there was a cat sitting
I have heard the old saying that dogs are man’s best friend. I don’t know much about dogs, but I do know a lot about cats. I have had a cat as a pet for at least 30 years. They are wonderful and I know I will always have one in my life. I think cats make the perfect pet because they are self sufficient, intelligent, and good companions.
Cats and kids can make an incredibly cute combination together. I remember when John (my son) was a tiny tot, Lilly (our kitty) never left him alone. She loved him so much that she used to fast till he came back from school. It was really cute to watch their love for each other. We once presented John a cat greeting card for his birthday. He was literally on cloud nine that day.
Since they were babies we had to give them formula for kittens and made sure they had everything they needed, which wasn’t that hard to do except that they got litter and food everywhere. A month or two later, everything turned around. They started getting in to everything and tearing stuff up. At this point in time they were still babies, so I forgave them and accepted that they didn’t know any better, not to mention how incredibly cute they were. Besides the cute factor, they just love to rub all over you and purr their hearts out, which made forgiving them easier.
Cats are very easy to take care of. You need to fill the food bole twice a day. But if you get a food bole with the little tank to put all the food I
We had to stop at PetSmart to get them kitten food and a litter box. I bundled up my kitten in my dad’s jacket to keep her warm. She was fine being kept in there and she would purr too. When I hear that sound, it makes me feel warm inside like that rainy winter day holding her for the first time. This day was very special to me because it makes me feel full and happy to know that I got my wish for Christmas and I care for a precious kitten, Princess, that I love. Those socks that I put on that morning, might be lucky after
I have a general love for animals, but I specifically have an interest in cats. Their agility, grace, and independence is very captivating and beautiful. So, at seven-years-old, I believed I was ready to own some cats! My mother was a bit hesitant, and she told me that cats were a big responsibility, and I understood that. However, I was willing to take that challenge just to have two little furballs in our home. A month after the talk, I saw an ad in a paper talking about this animal shelter that had just opened up at Fashion Fair mall. Being small, emotional, and a cat-lover, you can imagine my determination of having a cat after the ad read “Many kittens and cats looking for a forever home. Adopt one today!” I took the newspaper and stomped
Some people say that they, “Are not a cat person” and use that as their reason to not adopt cats. I used to not like cats very much, but after finding three abandoned kittens under my aunts daycare building, I saw how sweet cats can be if you give them the attention that they need. Taking care of those kittens everyday really made me realize that not all cats are mean or uninterested in everything. The main
She was in total shock , Quite frankly so was I but I could be in that state to long I sprung straight into action. I ask her to grab some towels to dry them off and keep them warm. Their eyes were still closed so i knew they were still young and needed milk, So I grab a box and load into the car to head to Petsmart an get some KMR (kitten milk replacer) and a bottle. Once returning home from the store I cared for the kittens for the next month bottle feeding and stimulating them to go to the restroom. At around 7 weeks I found different loving families to adopt the kittens, letting them go was the hardest thing I had ever done but began a new path in life of wanting to save any animal I could. Since then I have dedicated myself to helping animals no matter what the cost. My goal is to achieve a degree in biology and my commitment to this school will help me accomplish that. I pursued volunteer work at the SPCA(Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) that has given me experience to work with most kinds of domestic animals, during that time I saw a American Pit-bull terrier with all of her teeth ripped out of her mouth for breeding
