Going From A Dog Person to a Cat Person

I have always been a animal lover,. I started by having dogs and when the landlord refuses dogs, I began my love affair with cats.


I started out loving dogs because I had them all my life. The were a big part of my life. I was an only child who grew up with my grandmother. My grandmother was overprotective and never let me out of her sight.

Giving Up My Dogs

I never had much friends growing up. It was not that I didn’t want them it was that I forever found myself in threesomes and I was the odd man out. It hurt me, I was lonely, but I found my enjoyment with my dogs. They became my friends. Instead being out playing with my friends, I was home on the balcony with my dogs, or taking my dogs for a walk.

However, circumstances would have it that I moved into low rental city housing and that meant we couldn’t have animals. It broke my heart at 18 years old when I had to give up my dog so that my grandmother could get the low rental.

I missed my poodle Tammy so badly but she needed to get the low rental. I didn't have much choice. We didn’t have any money. They did allow cats but my grandmother never liked cats.

My love affair with cats

I got my first two cats when my son was six years old. They were given to him by a friend of mine. We have had cats ever since. At one time we had 11 cats in the house. We had two female cats that had litters at the same time.

I admit I couldn’t wait to get rid of all the kittens and I managed to find homes for them as well. I had so many cats that I was named the cat lady in the neighborhood. Now I have just two cats, an orange tabby, called Rugby and a white cat called Junia. These two are quite enough. I don’t ever want a house full of cats anymore.

my mom was a dog person, I am the cat person. I can't stand smelling dog stench because my mom fed the dogs chicken, pork, sunny side up eggs with rice, never dog food
