Always Looking for More Cats

Today I am going to make this short and sweet because I am having trouble with my internet....

I have 5 cats. That's plenty and I don't want any more. But I do find myself looking at the web sites of the local shelters and checking out Craig's List everyday. There are so many cats for adoption and it is very tempting to take another home. I really should stop browsing. My husband is no help... He would like to have twin Maine Coon kittens to add to the crew we already have.

I thought maybe I could volunteer at the local shelter. Unfortunately, as I have mentioned before, I am very allergic to cats. I am used to mine and I do well on some meds. When I go to the shelter, where there can easily be 100 cats, I take extra antihistamine. Sometimes that helps control the symptoms, sometimes I am sick for the rest of the day. So volunteering is out.

I did go to the shelter the other day for a brief time. Very cute and friendly cats all waiting for a new home. Many of them were sneezing, so it was easy to say no that day. My cats just got over their own bout of a URI and I am not willing to go through that again.

I guess I will always be looking for more cats. Someday.......
