Our new cat!!!!
« on: October 23, 2014, 08:26:15 PM »
We went to the shelter today and found Geo. He is seven months old. This is the closest anyone of us has been able to get to him since we brought him home three hours ago. My daughter's favorite color is black, (She knows black is absence of color, but in visual art it is defined as a color), and this cat made eye contact with her. He spent three hours listening, smelling, watching, and finally chewing on my papasan chair. We had to put my chair in the work room. I understood Geo would have some destructiveness already. I'm not upset.
Here is Geo with my daughter.

Here's the picture. I tried to post the picture earlier and it did not work. It's what I get when I try to type while eating some raw cookie dough. Geo is cute! The mood in our home has changed already. 
I can not wait to get Geo his little Christmas stocking and hang it on the mantle with ours. Yes, I am having it personalized for him!

Idee I am pleased that your family has grown to include Geo, go slow with him and apparently he will acknowledge your existence in 2 months to 2 years.

Cats are ghastly things. My neighbour's cat would sit wailing like a banshee outside my bedroom window. At 11:00 clock at night.

Until it accidently got poisoned. Turns out dimethoate is terribly toxic for cats.

People can be so cruel.

britchickxx

We were going to an adoption for a rescue cats. Only the adoption people wanted to come check our home, a 3 day adoption waiting period would start after the home inspection, I had to bring proof of income for all working adults, have a veterinarian already, make an appointment with a vet for neuter, they would drop off our cat for the appointment, the adoption fee was $80.00 plus other fees making the adoption of a rescue cat around $160.00. We would still have to purchase food, cat littler, ect...
I wanted to adopt from a shelter from the beginning only my daughter liked one kitten she saw in the pet store.
I finally explained that a shelter animal is euthanized it not adopted. She quickly decided to adopt at a shelter.
When we walked in to the shelter we had to walk past the dogs in cages on both sides. She had the beginning of tears. When we walked through the door to the cats she was crying. I had to hold back my tears.
Geo has a nervous temperament. He allowed my daughter to put his collar on Friday night. It has a little bell and his name tag on it. He is also micro chipped so we don't have to put the two other tags on his collar.
Geo is adjusting quick. He looked for my daughter on Friday when she left for school. He looked under her bed, on top of her bed, and finally sat there meowing until I came to pick him up. He loves attention. He even climbed up to the table and started eating off my dinner plate. He likes my oven roasted potatoes.
Two nights ago I discovered he loves to play at night. I was on my laptop. He decided he needed to lay on my keyboard. I removed him more than ten times. He also likes to be cradled when held.
He watches over my daughter while she sleeps. When she comes into a room he runs to her.
My husband and I have been extremely happy with Geo as well. He has brought joy to our home.
Strange thing is my husband is a dog person. He loves animals though. So he has adjusted to Geo already.

The parasite finds a home in a cat from garden soil or from ingesting it from a wild animal....mice. So, if your sister's cat is a real house cat and hasn't seen the yard for years, and if her house isn't a prime feeding ground for kitty to find mice....good to go. You really have to come into contact with the feces and that just doesn't happen. I hope.

About the only thing my cat gives me is a look of disdain.  Then again, if it ever did see a mouse it would probably hide IN the litter box.

Yes....

And I've eaten eggs that were in a basket by the stove on the farm
I've drank tap water in most large cities
I've swallowed gum
I went for decades without hand sanitizer
I've showered at the gym without flip flops and and a shower mat

Did we ever hear of this twenty years ago? About the only bad thing a cat could give you back then was fleas.......and attention.
