I've always had a cat in my life. Many hours have been spent cuddling them and crying into their fur when life wasn't as good as I'd like for it to be.
Darcie loves them as much as I do. We currently have three four-week-old kittens. I'm letting her keep Spot, the white one with large orange spots. That'll make eight cats we have. I'm going to give away the other two kittens and two other adult cats, then we'll only have four! Two are orange tabbys, one is solid white, and Spot is a mixture.
I've even let mama and babies stay in the house since they've been born. When my children came along, the cat went outside. Now that I only have two children living at home, I'm ready to have an inside cat again.
I love seeing a cat curled up on the couch or in front of the fireplace. So homey and cozy!
