“Downsizing” is not a word that pets want to hear! When my family moved to a smaller home, they couldn’t take both cats and dogs, so I guess I drew the short straw. I know it was a hard choice for them, because they said that I’m a very sweet (if at times shy) lady who got along fine with kids and other pets, was “very nurturing and mother-like,” and loved to be petted (although not picked up – they “respected my wishes” in that area!). Mom said, “She’ll let you know when she wants attention, and is a loving, happy girl who likes to sleep on beds, or in small, quiet, comfy places” (yes, very cat-like!). At 9 years old, I’ve got way more living to do, so let’s do it together!
