Meet the newest addition to my family: Joey! She is just the most precious, loveable, good-natured cat EVER. We adore her. She moved in on Thursday and right now, she is staying in the penthouse suite (our guest room) to keep her safe from our other 2 cats who are still adjusting to her presence in the house.
Joey was the beloved pet of my best friend Sara. They've had Joey for about 8 or 9 years, but sadly, their son developed terrible allergies and the doctor informed them that Joey was the main cause of said allergies and insisted that Sara find another home for the adorable moggie. Sara resisted for awhile, but on a recent visit to the doctor's office, he got more stern with her that Joey MUST GO.
So here she is, living with us, and Sara is brokenhearted. Of course, she's happy that she found a great home for Joey and she's admitted to me that Joey will get much more attention in our home since we don't have kids and have more attention to give. And we're happy to give it.
It just goes to show that the reasons to NOT have kids are never-ending. If Sara had never had kids, she would never have had to give up this precious creature.
Oh well. Their loss is our gain.
