I have had cats as long as I can remember. I love them. Currently we have four cats. The oldest is Sophie. We adopted her from the Humane Society 14 years ago. Actually, she adopted us. As we walked around looking at the kittens, she climbed the cage that she was in, reached her little paw out towards us, and practically begged us to pay attention to her. We couldn't leave without her. Her favorite past-time (besides eating) is to sit on the arm of my stitching chair and keep me company while I stitch. Oh, she also loves a belly rub.
