I got my very first cat when I was 38 -- I had bad allergies when I was in my late teens and 20's and told I couldn't have animals. Then I got tested again when I was 38, and the doc said I wasn't allergic at all, and that did it! When my friend adopted a pregnant cat who had 4 adorable kittens, I just had to have one. So I adopted my precious cream tabby, Theaulait (French for Tea with Milk -- because that's what color he was), and loved him for almost 13 years. When he died, I was almost in a state of panic -- not just because I had lost my little love, but I couldn't BEAR the thought of being catless! So I immediately went out hunting for kitten -- found a drug addict who was breeding moggies for drug money -- and was stupid enough to rescue 3 cats from his house when he was evicted. I gave one away to a friend, but still have 2 of them, who are now 12 years old. Plus 6 others. People think I'm a crazy cat lady, but I'm comfortable with that number, and they are my beloved family! :-)

Actually, I was thinking of humans who have no minds of their own. 

 

I am learning to live with cats again, and I know about their twisty little minds! I was catless for over a year, and just adopted an 11 year-old and a 13 year-old...once they got over being frightened of being in a new place, they took over.

My cats have minds to make up; they're just so tiny that it takes a while. After all, if you only have 12 neurons, making a decision takes a lot of juggling! LOL!!

For those who haven't made up their minds, or have no minds to make up:

Hi, all!

I am the happy slave of 8 cats, although one of them is in kidney failure, and not going to last much longer. :-(

Some of the are pedigreed, because I used to show them, and some are moggies, but all are equally loved. When I get organized, I'll put pictures of them up on my page.

Smiles,

Natalie ._c-

James (regarding your wall post, from early last year):

 

I choose to spend money on cats because unlike the vast majority of humans, they actually reciprocate by giving me joy and affection.  They don't demand your money, they don't assume they're entitled to it, and they don't cast judgements about how you earned it.  Cats don't use the resources you give them to undermine you, and they don't judge your lifestyle or say you are a sinner who must be punished and destroyed. (I do also give to humanist charities, but you'd potentially claim not enough if I have any left over to spend on my kitties.)

 

There actually are enough resources in this world to feed all people and all cats.  Cats aren't taking food out of poor villagers mouths, a system that demands monotonically increasing profits at the expense of all other considerations is.  And as Cats are living things, and ones with special bonds with us humans to boot, their well being is a much saner expenditure of financial resources than, say, novelty gifts, cosmetics, fashion, or any one of a number of trend-driven, disposable, status symbol objects. 

 

I support your right to rail against wasting of resources, and the geopolitical consequences of prioritizing foolish expenditures over humanitarian ones.  But there are far, far more egregious wastages and irrelevant outcomes than people spending their money to care for cute, loving companion animals (which, by the way, is also a humanitarian act).
