I tried to explain to Mrs. Beasley that we had dogs. Four of them. It was not, I explained to her, in her best interest to choose us as her family. I set about finding a home for her the minute my daughter told me that our two week search for her original family was exhausted. She had sauntered up to our front porch one spring evening and made her way into the house the second one of the girls opened the front door. Even while I was making calls and posting on social media, this little cat was on "tour" making friends with all the dogs, turtles and even the guinea pig behind my back! She was ruling the house (and me) by the end of the first week! Several times she had to put the Westies in place if they got too rough, but she really held her own! Every time we made the bed, she was up there scooting around under the top sheet for our amusement, trying to catch corners of the sheet as it billowed out around her. Cats are the most precious of pets. They are highly independent, however. Cuddles and love must be given ONLY when they think it's their idea. Sleeping on your head is optional.
