How Did You Choose the Right Cat?

When you decided to share your life with a cat did you have a particular breed or type in mind?

Did you say to yourself that nothing but a Siamese would be the right choice for you, or did you conclude that only a jet black cat could make you happy?

Perhaps you had no thoughts at all about the kind of feline that you wanted but were determined to choose the right cat no matter what kind of cat it may be.

So did your choice turn out all right?

Most likely it did, it’s hard not to fall in love with a cat. You have come to an understanding with your cat, the cat is the boss and you are the human slave.

So everything worked out fine and there is no way that you would want to go back on your choice of cat.
