For so many cat lovers, one just isn't enough. And why not have more than one? Domestic shorthaired cats can have so many different personalities and can be fun in so many different ways. Not to mention that shelters are full of cats and kittens looking for a good home to adopt them.
It is estimated that 95 percent of all domestic cats in North America are random-bred, making them domestic shorthaired cats. These "ordinary" everyday short-coated house cats may not be purebred, but they definitely win the kitty popularity contest paws down.
I just read a great story from a couple in Northern Michigan who didn't stop at one or even two cats, they filled their house with six different furry versions of feline fun. You can read the whole story here!
Our cat lovers didn't just open their hearts to the cats, they converted their home into a kitty play land. The entire house is devoted to living large cat style. There is a room devoted to felines with a three story cat mansion. In the living room there is a cat highway around the entire ceiling. The curio cabinet in the living room, normally a place for knickknacks, is dedicated in this Northern Michigan home to cat naps.
If the kitty palace inside isn't enough, the cats have an outdoor play area too. The backyard is fenced in and includes rock gardens, tunnels, shady trees and bird feeders for added scenery. Protected behind the eight foot fence, the kitties can lounge for as long as they want, or at least until their caretakers usher them back inside. The cats are all trained to hustle in when their human friends clap their hands.
The Northern Michigan cat lovers admit that their family thinks that they are crazy, but they don't mind. Their cats are happy and they are happy. Who could ask for more out of a pet crazy life?
Until next time...
