cat sleeping for a while
About a month ago I was playing some videogames when I heard a meowing just outside my door, so I opened the door and there was this little fella of about 1 year old purring and meowing just outside my door, so I let him enter the house.
Immediately I noticed that he wasn't neutered, I feed him some tuna I had and improved a litter box with some old newspapers and a box, however that night about 3am I heard a window opening and when came to take care of the window the cat wasnt there, he actually opened the window and went out.
Any way I went to school on the morning with not news of the cat and didn't take much care, but when I came back (I left the window open just in case) he was there waiting for me and received me with a nice purr and that has been our daily basis for the last month, he has came back of course with some scratches, but nothing serious so far, and his healing is amazing as the fact that since I took him in he has never got fleas or any other parasite.
Although I know that its possible that some day he wont come back I'll care, love and pet him as much as I can :)
Indoor Cat and Happy.
by Janice Lockheart
I am a fanatical believer in keeping cats indoors. Yes, there is another point of view and I'm sure that those that let their cat out love their cats as much as I love Mitch. But let him outside is something I could never do, I would be much too nervous.
There is not too much traffic here, not like in the cities but all it takes is one car. Then there are people who do not like cats, it is up to them whether they like cats or not, each to their own, but why they do cats harm I just cannot understand. There's the wild animals too, and vicious domestic ones. These are some of the reasons I keep Mitch inside.
Cruel? Some of your readers think it cruel to keep a cat in the house. Well I'm sorry, but it is not cruel. Mitch is happy, I know that he is. He does not have freedom that is true, but even we as human beings have our freedom restricted in some ways.
I just could not be without him, Is that selfish?
