Cat Love and Buffer Pets

We have been the owners of our cat for 15 years now. He is old and fat and pretty happy with his life.

This little boy LOOOOVES him a cat.

When we lost our dog back in February, I thought we would get a new dog soon after. But I was worried about how that would impact our elderly family member.

Plus I am not sure Dr. Dad was so ready to get a new dog.

Time goes on, however, and to be honest, after a cat related health scare this weekend, I am not sure we should be without a "buffer" pet.

Do you know about those? It's the pet you have to soften the blow of losing another pet. It sounds kind of harsh typed out there...but I know having the cat around after loosing the dog was very helpful.

So, we have just put in an adoption application for a dog.

I will let you know how it goes.

In the meantime...we will keep enjoying the cat.
