  1. People have such odd ideas that cats are ‘basically useless’, but I’ve taken in the odd cat (they really DO ‘pick their owner’s), and I think their personality is more reflected by what you give to them.

    I just read about a woman who adopted a cat, and she’d had surgery. She felt ‘terrible’, and went home to sleep.

    She was woken by her cat, pushing her face with her paw. Turns out, she had sepsis – and her BP had fallen so low, that if her cat had not woken her, she would have died in her sleep.

    Like a lot of things; You get – and sometimes get more – than what you give.
