I am happy to say that I have been a cat owner for most of my life. I have two beautiful cats named Butter Bear and Mumu Cow. As you can imagine my 6 year old named them . They were born here in the house, mom ran away when they were a week , but they survived. They think they are people and act like my other children. I am currently 25 weeks pregnant with my second daughter and it has been recommended to me by my relatives that I should get rid of my cats because of the toxo..... disease (i can't remember how to spell it, sorry). so far my pregnancy is great, no problems. my husband changes the cat litter for me and my daughter helps me feed them. i was also told that there behavior might become irratic and to make sure that they don't scratch me for fear of infection. well, as you can imagine i did as much research as possible and am not worried. i refuse to abandon an animal in fear of catching a disease that is usually more catchable by exposure to raw meat. anyways, just wanted to get that off my chest. it gets a little frustrating for me sometimes since they are family. my husband who used to hate cats actually loves them also. he realizes that cats are not evil vermon and can be trained just like dogs. one of our cats actually stopped someone from breaking into our home by waking me up. so as you can imagine he does not want to get rid of her he just thinks of her as a cat that think its a dog.
