So, DH and I are considering getting a cat and I just cant seem to make up my mind. We live just down the road from a shelter with over 100 cats available right now. We cant pass the place without pondering the possibility of adding a cat to the household. The problem is that weve never had a cat before. I grew up on a large farm and we did have a few barn cats that I loved when I was little, but I havent been around cats much since then. The thing that drives me nuts is that so many of the people Ive been around in my adult years either dont have one, or dont seem particularly enamored with the one(s) they have. So am I foolish for considering this? At the moment we have one perfectly well behaved small dog in the house and we dont have any problems as far as him being destructive, house training, getting into things, etc. So am I asking for trouble by adding to the indoor flock? Cat owners, how do you feel about your house cat?
