    If I was allergic to cats and couldn't be around them, then this would be one less thing I'd have to worry about =/

    I Have Two Safeties From This

    one, I am a guy, so, it will never apply, second, I am not the reclusive type, so, I am not, naner naner naner.  Lastly, I only have 5 cats, I think to qualify, you need at least 10.  Once I get 10, the number will be 15.

    I Suspect I Already Am One

    I hate to admit it but I think that's where my life is headed. Although perhaps I am a bit young to qualify at the moment my two cats and two dogs are my family. I talk to them and they 'talk' back. Especially the cats, they carry on conversations with me and give me all the...

    Maybe I Do

    To give kitties a good home. Does that mean to not have an insignificant other?  Maybe I won't get hurt. I don't see the problem here.
