I finally got a cat!! I found a great no kill shelter in Hickory that had some of there animals at Petsmart and they were thrilled that I was interested in an adult cat. They happened to have the perfect the cat there. Her name is Vanessa and she is 9 yrs old and has been in a family with small children. The children unfortunatly developed asthma and the family could no longer keep Vanessa. She's black with white around her paws and chest and has a cute white mark on her nose. She is resting comfortably in her bed now, after a careful brushing and some waterless shampooing. So far the kids love her and she seems to not mind them running about. All the way home all I could here was my 2 yr old saying kitty kat, kitty kat (or at least something very close to that). She is a little on the heavy side...is 20 lbs a lot for a cat to weigh? I bought her some cat food formulated for indoor cats. But she seems to be content and I am just so thrilled! Today is my Bday and so far it has been so great. I did not set out to find a cat this morning, i figured I would just take a break from the search. But we decided to pop into Petsmart to look at kitty stuff and there she was. So it has been a very exciting day for me. I look forward to sharing pictures and stories!!
