HOMEY – An Adoption Success Story
I am the only “commercial” rescued family member. Black Beauty wandered into the backyard. Smokey was abandoned by the neighbors. I was adopted from the Humane Society. These next two months are months of giving food, gifts, time, but what about CATS? I am lucky to live in a multi-cat household. I am surrounded by my own kind. We communicate all the time and Mom doesn’t even know it – hee, hee…
Switzerland passed an anti-cruelty law requiring people who buy or adopt cats to acquire two instead of one since it’s the nature of an animal to have company of their own kind. I agree with Switzerland, whoever that is, for the following reasons:
- We have greater opportunities for exercise, socialization and mental stimulation.
- We keep each other company when you’re away.
- We are TWICE THE FUN and ENTERTAINMENT, but NOT twice the work.
- You’ve just made room in the rescue organization for another homeless cat.
So, for those of you who have one cat, think about getting another one (or two) as a Holiday
Present to yourself. There are many wonderful rescues in Tampa and don’t forget The Pet Resource Center (formally Animal Services) – the last stop for a lot of my kind. Remember that cats are like potato chips, you can’t have just one! – Homey Cat
