Yup. We have 4 cats.. Well.. 3 now if he never comes home. Sad part about it. He was MY cat. The one that always sat on my lap, slept with me and kept my toes warm.
The other 3 could care less about me unless the bowl is empty or the box is full.
So the heck with them. I’m getting a dog. Always wanted one but I work strange hours and can’t let one out at regular times. My wife is now a stay at home mom and is rarely gone. She said 2 years ago “when one of the cats die, you can get a dog”. I’ll give him at least 2 months to come back. (and yes, I have been looking for him and asking everyone in the area if they have seen him) Then it’ll be the end of the year and the dead if winter. If he has not come home by then I doubt he ever will.
It’ll probably accomplish 2 things getting a dog. I’ll get a dog and the cat will come back. Murphy’s law and all.
I am thinking a Basset hound. We had one when I was a kid. I loved that dog.
Go to the pound and rescue a dog, and yes that’s when the cat shows back up.
make sure the dog isn’t a cat killer...
Sometimes in our bedroom we have a cat on the bed, a dog under the bed, and a second dog in my chair...
