Thank you all for the cat advice. I do have a couple more questions.
I know that “tuxedo” cats aren’t really a breed, but just a color designation. Are they always super sweet and friendly? I’ve been told that Cat’s attitude is pretty typical of a tortoise shell cat. I know I never want another one of those! Seems weird that we have two cats that showed up and one is the sweetest cat ever and the other is about as obnoxious as they come.
I’m not saying I’d ever get another cat but if we ever find ourselves without a dog, I’d maybe consider it. I should probably see how things go with Boots in the house before I even think about that. Cats don’t have to be taken outside in the middle of the night. Rita has tummy issues, especially if we both leave the house and leave her alone. Here in Texas it’s not so bad because we go out in whatever clothes we’re sleeping in. In MO, it’s a bit different! Plus, there will be snow and it rains there.
You can see we don’t have a door to the stairs. Same thing at the bottom – it’s all open. We may end up adding a door downstairs. It would be pretty easy to do as you come out of the downstairs family room.
I probably need to get him microchipped. He’s escaped a couple of times here but since he’s not been out much, he runs right back to the sewing room. With Addie in and out a lot there, we probably have a greater chance of him escaping.
Vince did see Cat yesterday. She makes sure we know she’s around so she gets fed but other than that, she has totally broken up with us. I think it’s funny that she’s so aggravated, she won’t even sleep on my car any more. She’s moved over to either Vince’s car or the RTV. That is one crazy cat.
I’ve been packing in the sewing room. Boots is such a good helper. I have to remove him from every box before I put something in it. I go to the closet for another load of fabric, come back and he’s back in the box. Sure hope he loses the fascination with my packing in the next day or so.
