I have a new hairy companion, and it's a male! Alas, though, it's of animal kingdom and his name is Whiskers. I've taken the plunge and adopted a homeless cat. He's four years old, lovable, sweet, well behaved, and enjoys giving me eye contact with his green orbs. Frankly, this is the most affectionate cat I've ever met. He's content to let me pet him and snuggles near me whenever he gets the chance.
It was hard losing my dog, but being in an apartment and gone quite a bit, I thought a cat would be a better choice for me this time around. This weekend was very nice having something underfoot. Thank God for providing pets for people who are alone. It's not a husband, but it helps to fill the empty space.
Say hello to Whiskers!
