I am so happy to announce that there has been a new addition to my family..... a black cat named Betty whom we got from the Humane Society. She is already about six and a half years old, but she is just so sweet that she stole our hearts the moment we saw her. Unfortunately when we got her home, she was at first very scared and easily spooked. She is still the latter, but she is no longer hiding like she was and has become very affectionate and loving. It had been hard not having a cat around ever since we had to put to sleep our 18 year old tabby, Tiger, but we did need some time to grieve. However we are now very happy to have this new companionship. At first I think my mother was thinking about getting a kitten or a much younger cat, but she found Betty irresistible, and she is glad to take on such a sweet cat that may not have found a home otherwise because of her age. Plus we got the impression that this is not Betty's first adoption, and we wanted to give her a steady home where she does not have to fear being taken back. Once I get some pictures of her developed I will share them if you would like. She is completely black without a spot of white hair. Knowing that she is here has improved my mood so much and got me not so worried about my weight and the acid and focused more on living. I am happy beyond words, so I just had to share my good news. Do others find they are more cat people or dog people or can enjoy both equally both?

She had already had all her claws removed before we adopted her. Do others with transplants and cats find it necessary to at least have a cat's front paws declawed to prevent infections due to scratches?
