It's nice to have a furry friend greet you when you come home. There's something about a purring cat that's almost therapeutic, especially when they cuddle up with you on a chilly day.
Regardless of what
I'd say we lucked out with two good ones (for the most part). We got Lacey 6 years ago from a local animal shelter when she was a kitten. She tends to keep to herself and isn't that outwardly friendly. Lacey's more of a scaredy cat and takes a long time to warm up to people. She's definitely a "girl" with her sporadic mood swings. But we love her because she was our first pet, we picked her out together and brought her home to our first apartment.
Chancho is our Mexican orphan. His name is from Nacho Libre. We found him on Craigslist 3 years ago, after my co-worker adopted his brother, Bruno. He was the last kitten left, and we literally picked him up at a parking lot. Poor little guy needed some TLC. He was sooooo cute with long soft fur. I've always wanted a gray and white kitty. Little did I know he would be ca-razy. His sweet overly affectionate personality makes up for his bad behavior. Chancho is more like a dog - his favorite thing is playing fetch.
When they're not fighting each other or doing things they shouldn't, they can usually be found in this position. Ah, the life of a cat.
