Anyone who knows me knows how much I love my cats. I’ve had many over the years, and all of them have been incredibly precious to me.

When I was growing up, we had everything: dogs, cats, hamsters, gerbils, birds, rabbits, turtles, fish, you name it. Before I was born, my brother and sister even had a lion cub for a short time. But once I was on my own, I decided two or three cats was the optimal arrangement for me. They’re easy to take care of and, as long as they have a friend or two, entertain themselves beautifully.

Contrary to popular belief, cats are not generally aloof or untrainable. Unlike dogs, they generally don’t care whether or not they please you, but they do like a lot of affection and want to be with you as much as possible. I often have one, two or all three of mine in my lap whenever I sit down for any length of time, though they’re not fond of sharing and I usually end up with just one, even if it’s not the one who was in my lap to begin with. And they’re always at the door to greet me when I’ve been away even for a short period of time.

They’re a tremendous blessing to me, and I’m always amazed at the way God always sends me just the right kitty to rescue when it’s time for a new one. Each one has ended up to be exactly what I needed at the time. God’s good that way.
