I went to the Humane Society yesterday just to be near the cats. I said hello to the dogs(many pitbull mixes), too. I went to the cat room and there were many beautiful babies. There were many Russian Blues. One got adopted. I loved all the cats, but there were at least five that caught my interest. First there was this feisty little boy named Bart. He was a 8 week old white kitten who when I came in, meowed loudly to be let out. So I took him out and played with him awhile. He liked my purse and started playing with the straps. Then I went to a beautiful 5 month old black male. The minute I touched his head, he started rubbing it. He climbed on me and rubbed my head. I took him into the acquaintance room to be with him. I put him down so that he can look around and I sat down and watched him. Meowzer did not want to look around. He climbed on the bench and nuzzled my legs and arms and hands. And face. He nuzzled and cuddled in my lap. I fell in love with this little guy(I will not be calling him Meowzer. I want something else for him). After I played with him, I put him back in his cage and went to see another. Elmo was a domestic long hair grey tabby. This boy was HUGE! I don't know his weight. They said he was 8 months old but he looked too big. And heavy. Then I saw a russian blue(I forgot his name)who stood quiet in my arms as I pet him. The last cat I played with was a two year old grey tabby female. I forgot her name. She was like the black cat. All ready for loving and attention and just curled up in my lap. I saw a cat that looked alot like Jake but it was female. Her name was Tess and she was another cat that kept meowing for attention. It would be very hard deciding on the five cats. I loved them all. I guess I like the female tabby and the black cat the most since tehy were very affectionate with me. Mr. Big was also very affectionate. So now, I will be raising money until I reach $100 or $200. When I have the money, I will be going back to adopt a cat or two. All the dogs and cats are fixed(even the 6 week old kittens) Cats younger than 4 months are all $60 each and cats older than 4 months are $49. So it will be a total of $90 if I get two adults. Plus their food, toys, litter boxes(I washed and disinfected Jake's litter box). I feel a little better now that I was with some cats, at least, temporarily until I can adopt one or two. I think by the time I have the money, my choice of cats will be gone(hopefully adopted), but I know there will always be others who will want me.
