Trust me, I won't have my hands full. All of the dogs are not mine and other than walking my grandmother's yorkies for money, I don't take care of them. My only responsiblities are my current two cats, two fish tank that will be combined into one when I move, a snake, and one leopard gecko. At the townhome, those will be the only animals there. No dogs. Just cats and caged animals. As far as attention. When I am home, I spend about 99% of my time with my cats. The other one percent is bathing and eating. Oh and sleeping too.
Mybabyphx, your Phx sounds like my Tyran, minus taking the cat to the neighbors. She follows me around, goes into the bathroom with me (and will sit in my shorts while I use the toilet
). Right now she is circling my chair, wanting me to pick her up. When I got her from the rescue at the age of 3 months, she would not give me a moments peace. She would roam around the room and "get lost" and meow for me to come find her. She's like my "Siamese Training Cat". She is very vocal and has a different meow for everything. So I'm used to demanding cats. She's in my lap now watching me type. Both of my cats are tolerant of other cats and Tyran absolutely loves other cats. Miki has to warm up.
So I guess, what I've meant to say in all of that is, I won't have my hands full adding a new set of paws to the family. I'm actually used to a lot of animals. I grew up with animals all my life and depending on the schedule they are on, my animals get fed before me, cleaned up after before me, and get attention before I get my own time. (if at all with these fuzzballs)
Oh and thanks for all the links. I'll definatly be checking them out. I would love to get a Siamese from a rescue, and while I personally would not mind getting an adult, Miki is not a 'cat person' if that makes any sense. She really has to warm up to newcomers, but once she does, she sticks to them like glue. Her and Tyran are inseperable(sp). So, a kitten might .be best. Tyran on the other hand, could care less what age you are. She's still going to play with you.
