People always give me crap when they find out I have a cat. Apparently as a guy, I'm automatically supposed to be a dog person. Dogs are cool and eventually I'll have one, but I love my cat. I'm a spontaneous person that loves to travel and having a cat makes that easy. I can't imagine having to find someone to watch the dog every time I want to get away for a weekend. With a cat you simply need to leave some food, water, and a clean litter box and you're good to go.

If you're considering adopting a pet. Consider a cat. Consider this cat. Astrid is three-years-old and has spent a third of her life locked up at Paws and Claws. For a small adoption fee you can bust her out of jail and give her a forever home. For info on Astrid and other pets at Paws and Claws, click here.
