I used to really dislike cats. I never wanted to be near them and always complained. I thought they were gross and smelly and irritating and they made me sneeze and made my eyes water and generally made me feel horrible. If one came near me, I would move, which usually meant they would follow me. I think cats have a 6th sense.
My husband had cats when I first met him and I wondered how long they would last. I almost considered not dating him because of his feline friends and my extreme dislike for their presence. When they passed away from old age, I never wished for cats again.
Flash forward ten years.
Look at me know. This cat loves me and wants affection all the time. As soon as I sit for a minute, he shows up. I actually enjoy his company and this surprises me. He loves to sit right on my chest and rub all over my chin and face, giving me kisses. I allow this behavior and smile.
Who knew that a cat hater could become a cat lover? This is very odd to me and makes me wonder what other things in my mind might change over time. I wonder if we should get a dog?
How have you changed your mind dramatically?

You might love a dog too 🙂
The thought has crossed my mind! 🙂
A dog is a big commitment time-wise…..they can’t be left alone for long periods of time like a cat can and they require walking, etc. If you leave food out for a cat, they’ll eat and leave more for later-not a dog! Cats are very low maintenance when compared to dogs. Dogs are like having another small child.
Good points, as always. I don’t have time right now for a dog, but the thought does cross my mind from time to time.
A- This made me smile! I love that you love your kitties and they bring so much joy to your family. And you got a sweet snugglebug with your black one!! 😊
Our kitties bring us a lot of joy too. Our black one is my constant companion around the house.
Who says black cats are bad luck?!!
Happy Halloween! Debbie

Hi Debbie! So good to see you again and thanks for writing. I always heard that pets brought joy and I
resisted for so long. Everyone in our family is loving our new fur babies!! Do you have a dog? I remember you had rabbits. I hope you’re family and Stella & Dot is doing well. xo
I used to feel the same way about cats but also changed my mine many years ago. Big dogs are my favorite.
