If the necktie doesn't get you, my ability to entertain myself will do the trick. Please allow me to explain that even the best animal shelters can be a little boring. For me, I am never at a loss for the next round of find that silly fur mouse or tear up that dumb paper bag into tiny pieces. I am a group favorite when they want a well-mannered cat for special events. I enjoy being with children old enough to understand not to chase me and adults will appreciate my excellent snuggle techniques. I care so much for the fur mice I play with, I become over-protective of them if there are other cats around. For this reason, I understand the "cat lady" thinks I will be better as an only cat. Oh well, maybe she has a point; I do love my people.
