If you haven’t experienced the lovely sensation of a furball cuddled against you on a chilly night or the soothing vibration of a cat purring, well, you don’t know what you’re missing.
Is it all pats and cuddles and antics? No. Getting a cat is also a responsibility, maybe for 15-20 years. There is extra cleaning and extra cost, arrangements to be made when you travel, and time to be spent playing.
Do I think all cats should have a home and vice versa? Of course I do. But, I also want cats to have loving, dedicated, knowledgeable owners. I want cats to have good homes and good lives.
