I have never in my life been one day without at least a dog , a cat , 2 dogs 3 cats, I can't imagine a home without at least one of something breathing when you walk in the door. Plants are nice but they don't follow you..and they don't think your beautiful first thing in the morning.. Animals do. !
I live with 3 cats , and Angie my dog. My cats do not go outside ever. My law is that if you want your cat to live 5-6 years you let them outside. If you want them to be with you 15-16 years you don''t , simple as that. Mine live long lives and I like it that way. They do too.
So this morning I woke at 6 a.m. and my cat Jake is nowhere in the house,, how do I know this right away? because he is the first one to come into the kitchen to eat.
He's very big... 22 lbs.... very hairy, and very orange.. You can't miss him..
