Low rider

Today a friend asked me why I didn't have a cat. I have a dog, bird, tortoise, rabbit and two goldfish, but no cat. I'm really not sure why I don't have a kitty.

If I got a cat I could get a Munchkin Kitty. Look at their stubby legs! They are like feline weiner dogs. Another critter might be a bit much for my house though... but it's something to think about.

(*Note on the Munchkin...."Short legs apparently do not handicap Munchkins, which can run with considerable speed and climb trees, although their jumping ability is somewhat limited. Countertops may be beyond their reach, but some owners may consider this an asset. They are able to groom themselves, and can stretch with hindlegs to scratch behind their ears. ".... so they are not suffering. I would not support something that was cruelty to animals! I think it's interesting that no one thinks Dachshunds are bad... but if you have a kitty with short legs it seems to be different... why is that? There is a Munchkin rescue in Florida... anyone in Florida?)
