When, Where and How I Got My Red Cat

2009 when to the humane society to look at a Beagle. Had to walk by the cat section. This cat put on a premier performance. Clawing at the glass, rolling etc. The Beagle was sick so when we walked back through the same performance. None of the other cats moved. So you know what happened after that!!!

I'd Describe My Cat As…

Human, intuitive loving on his terms. Has a regular routine and becomes very upset if his routine is interrupted. Eats like clockwork so we invested in an automatic feeder for the 6:10 am feeding. He is kind enough to now not stare us in the face early in the morning. He knows who and who not he likes. He has chosen us and we will respect his wishes. He does know his boundaries, but will test the waters frequently.


  • Take out pet insurance for your pet. Pets are an added expense in today's economy. If there is an emergency such as crystals etc it will pay off. Red cats do have a great personality. Taking on a pet is a permanent thing. They will give unconditional love so you must commit through thick and thin.
