This is Sugarplum. She's a 4 yr old cat. She's a redheaded princess who is curious and likes attention on her own terms. Sound familiar? Right now I am having a serious debate about whether Sugarplum should be my new roomate.
-company so i don't go crazy talking to myself
-finally having a pet!
-pet owners live 10 yrs longer on average
-build up a natural immune system
-I am allergic to cats. They make me sneeze and my eyes itchy.
-my dad is allergic to cats and i want my parents to be able to stay with me when visiting
-the constant vacuuming/lint brushing as I hate cat hair
-dealing with gross things like poo and puke and stuff that makes me naseated
-where to put the cat if I go away.
-not all places allow pets so what to do if I move out sometime.
I have not been a pet owner for years and my experience with all animals is limited. I had a hamster named minime I loved very much but common sense tells me a cat is a lot more work. Would it be okay for while I go to work? How do I take care of a cat? So many questions for a spur of the moment decision, but I feel I must act quick before someone else realizes how fabulous Sugarplum is and steals her away. Feel free to throw feedback and opinions about getting a cat, and how to care for a cat.
