When I was around 12 years old, my Dad came in from outside white as a ghost, and said something was out there making noises. He had been working on his car, and it was now past 9pm so it was dark. My sister went outside, and came back with a tiny kitten-it was so adorable! We begun feeding the kitten, and taken care of him. However he did not need much care, as he was very independent, from the beginning.
He looked like a cheetah when he ran. He loved being outside, and climbing tree's. He was a very happy cat, and we were excited that he came into our lives.
We let him inside occasionally, but his favorite place to be was outside playing and climbing. He always stayed in our yard, and came when called. I was actually surprised at how well he minded.
He also was very affectionate, and loved his chin, and back through his tail rubbed/scratched. We had this cat at the same time we had our yorkie-poo (dog), and they got along extremely well-which is surprising because my yokie-poo acted like he was as big as a mastiff. Despite this they both would cuddle together, and sometimes I would even find them cuddled up asleep together..it was adorable!
They both brought me extreme happiness! Unfortunately my doggy has passed on, buy the cat is alive, and lives with my sister.
I definitely recommend a cat for those who have the time, and money to spend on one. Keep in mind, all cats, are different...some love attention, some love being independent, and if you're lucky you'll get one like ours who is extremely loving and affectionate toward us, but at the same time is very independent.
