Kitty mom here: I've grown up w/ cats in my house, which would explain my kitty enthusiasm. My brother got a cat (Crissy) about a year before I was born and then she had kittens right around the same time I came into the world. My parents kept one from the litter (Precious) and she became mine until she ran away from a boarding house while we were on a long vacation away from home. When I was 10 I finally convinced them to let me have another kitty, that's when Sneakers came along. Since then we've added Peanut, Toby, Dusty, and Mia. Phew! That counts 6 kitties that have owned me.
I've never been owned by another animal (no dogs, hamsters, rabbits, nothing). What about all you pawrents? %:D%
