I have had cats since I was 10 or so. I'm now 42, so that's a long time. Last fall I had to put my 18 year old, Spats, to sleep after a long battle with kidney disease. It was the worst thing I've ever had to do. About a month later I wandered into the local shelter. There I found Joey. He is the best cat in the world!! He loves everybody. He loved Frankie, my 4 year old, right off the bat! Frankie, on the other hand, took a little longer.There's a reason his nickname is Cranky Frankie! And about a month ago I got a dog and Joey loves her!! It only took him a few days to understand that if he stopped running the dog would stop chasing! He's funny and sweet and smart and a cuddler! I know everyone thinks their cats are the best, but Joey currently holds that title!!!
