Last night was a long one. Josie wasn’t at all happy being separated from her family and being in a kennel all alone. Yes about 1:30 she did end up in bed with us and after exploring settled down and went to sleep. A mid morning nap is appreciated and needed.....

Day 4 Josie Report: We are surviving each other. No really she has been pretty darn good. I move her crate into the bedroom at night and she settles down for some sleep. Josie does wake me up every couple hours to go potty. The last time at about 4:30am so we’ve been outside to hear Mr. Rooster start his morning melody. With sweetheart needing to have her leg propped up there has been a lot of bonding time for us. Josie absolutely hates the little pen that was set up outside for her to go potty in, she howls a mournful song as soon as she is put in it. Yesterday we walked down to the fence and the horses came to meet the new family member, Josie hi-trailed back to the house quickly. All in all we are happily with the way she is adapting and of course she is working her way to her rightful place as queen of the house.

I don't have pets any more, although I'd like to have a few cats but the big concern would be what happens to them when or if I can't care for them, and I am creeping up into that age group.
OTOH, my neighbor doesn't take care of her cats, and they roam around, particularly in my yard. I've seen the orange and white cat sitting at the base of my front porch several times, or resting near the AC unit in back. Today she was right up on the porch, curled up just below the door step. She's not friendly though, and heads toward the shrubbery when I call to her.

Have you thought about fostering? It would be a way to have cat(s) without the long term concern. I'm thinking that would be my next step after our current kitty (who is now 3 1/2) is gone- assuming she lives a long life.
