You know that saying ...
You always want what you can't have?
Well, that is how I have been feeling for the past 3 days. Our entire Saturday was devoted to finding a new feline to add to our clan. We searched and searched for our sweet little guy, but came up empty handed. Michael and I called every Maine Coon breeder in Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, Tennessee and West Virginia. NOTHING!!!
I have been lobbying for a small (cat, dog, pig, etc.) for awhile now and I have finally convinced Michael to add a cat to the family. We first considered adopting a kitten from the local animal shelter but then decided against it due to the fact that it was...
A) Hard to find a young kitten at a shelter (most were at least 1 yr. old)
B) We didn't want it to have any bad habits.
C) Thought is would be easier to introduce the kitten to Otis if it came from a socialized environment and not from a cage.
So here we are... a few days later and cat-less. I know the right kitten is out there- I just don't like to wait. All the spring litters will be ready for pick-up around April 1st. But Mr. and Ms. Impatient can't wait. We want our little guy NOW!!! I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
