Bowser has been a part of our family for nearly four years now, and he's quite spoiled as you can tell from the photo I've included with this review!
Bowser came to us from a family who had too many pets and was surprised with a new litter of kittens. In hindsight, I do believe that he was separated from his mother too early but that was something out of our control. We got off to a slightly rocky start with a case of worms that took longer than usual to treat, but soon enough Bowser was an energetic kitten who especially delighted my son.
I love having a cat at this point in my life since I work a full time office job. Bowser is fairly self sufficient during the day, as we provide food and water twice a day and he eats as he pleases. He's full of love and attention for my family and I, greeting us at the door when we arrive home from work and school. He's very playful and loves chasing after toys, ribbon, and my yarn as I work on knitting projects. My son just loves cats, and Bowser hops into his bed when it is story time every night, and curls up to fall asleep with him.
I absolutely recommend shorthair cats as a pet especially to families with working parents, as they are low maintenance and offer a lot of connection, affection, and fun around the home.
