Acquired: Rescue / shelter organization
Posted Apr 09, 2015
My adventures with this cat could fill a book. I rescued Oreo in college after my first boyfriend dumped me. Her paperwork claimed she was a neutered male, when in reality she was a spayed female. We have moved multiple times, to multiple states and she has been my ever-constant companion. She has helped train and raise three other cats and one dog. She loves my eighteen month-old son, and in many ways acts like a dog. I highly recommend rescue animals--so many need loving forever homes. Spend some time with a cat of your choice if you can--many shelters do foster to adopt programs. Be mindful of the amount of work you want to put in to a cat and research their breed beforehand. Certain breeds have character traits (like calico, siamese, etc). These steps will go a long way to ensuring you find the right companion.
