Re: Cats--progress note

I know that's so about "cat" cats and "people" cats; however, neither Crookshanks nor Melvin had ever been touched by humans before they were about 3 months old, and they are two of the most affectionate cats living here. Magick was about 8-10 weeks old when I met him, and he literally sleeps under me. He and Crookshanks fight over who gets to sit in my lap. I guess, like all things, there are exceptions. BTW, there is a new Beagle here. I am desparately trying to find her a home.

Would your preference be a single cat, Jim? I enjoy two, partly for their
antics together, but also to keep each other company. However, I've read
that if you got two, like the ones you saw, their ability to warm up to
people will depend greatly on how much they've been handled by people from
the time they're born. Cats that have been mainly around other cats during
those first months may tend to be cat-cats. If they've been handled by
people, who've cooed and cuddled them, they have a greater likelihood of
being people-cats. It's fun to watch the antics of the 2, but if they
ignore you in favor of each other's company, you may end up with an empty
lap. But if they like human attention, well, both you and Ms. Fatma could
end up with individual lap warmers who also have a feline friend to keep
them busy when the laps aren't available.

Went to the shelter today, mostly to see what they had. Can't actually
choose a cat without Ms. Fatma's concurrence.

There were two kittens--probably same litter, 2 months or so old--in
one of those two-cell cages together. They had a thing to sleep on that
was about the size of a dinner plate with a fat-cushy donut type edge.
Looked like it was made of terry. One of the kittens crawled under it
and, of course, that made a lump in the bottom of it. The other kitten
saw the moving lump and smacked it, which cause the kitten underneath
to jump up, and that caused the kitten who did the smacking to jump
backwards, tail over tea cups. then dive into the other cage cell. Wish
I'd had a video camera.
