I love cats, just not the messy litter boxes. My last two cats were brother and sister, and they were awesome, even one of them thought he was a dog. But even though they were fixed, the male would not stop spraying my house. I couldn't take it after several months. I rehomed him to a retired lady who was trying to find an all white cat, and she promised he would die with her. The female went to live at my ex hubbys, and she's still there. They are around 8 years old now. I won't have another cat though. So I just appreciate them from afar now! Your babies are precious!
