Girl I think you need to go for it! There is some poor soul, needing you!
and I totally admire you for wanting an older cat, poor babies, they almost always get the shaft, because those darn kittens are so cute, they are, but they are so destructive! I think that is the right idea especially concerning your son, kittens bit and crawl, they don't know any better but save your son and them from all of that! Awww! I think it is a great idea, I wish you all the luck if you go tomorrow! I have a long-haired calico, "Callie" of course,
she was left at the doorstep at my Vets office.They have cats that live in the office there, office-cats, I walked in and the 2 OC'S had her trapped in the corner, I said, "Whose Calico?" my friend who worked there said, "Yours!"
I said, "Yea, she's mine!" Awesome cat, Marvin taught her to fetch rocks, and when I was pregant with my son, I would walk, around these duplexes on our block, Callie followed me everytime, one day this older woman was sitting outside when we went by, she said, "Oh, I like your new dog!"
we both laughed, she did look just like a dog walking right beside me! She is so cool!
She is getting on up there in age now! Anyway, I'm behind you all the way!
Whatever you decide!
