Well, very young kittens would be really obvious if maintenance ever came in and saw them...but otherwise, yeah.

 
The last apartment I lived in required a large deposit for pets; a deposit I felt not inclined to pay. Apparently the maintenance people were like honey badger.

I kind of always felt like young children were potentially more destructive than my cat, yet they charge no deposit for them. *shrug*

Do you mean that is what your policy covers, and you only pay cheaper office checkups?

 
Some of these damned apartments I've been looking at only accept cats one year or older. Maybe they'd be willing to accept kittens from an experienced shelter volunteer who knows how to do behavior-mod, scratch training, etc.

We only use it for major expenses.

If you purchase the policy when they are still kittens the cost is quite reasonable. We have only to cover major expenses, i.e. surgeries.

Yup, I have 2 cats - both strays I took in about eight years ago. They have opposite personalities - Lizzie is quite shy and cautious, while Billy is outgoing and always greets visitors. People (if they like cats) tend to fall in love immediately with Billy because he's so affectionate, while they usually don't have a chance to get to know Lizzie because she typically hides under the bed. But she's very friendly toward me, which is what counts. Very well-behaved and sensitive. Billy is usually a good boy, but he's more rambunctious and can be a bit of a troublemaker, including when he picks on his sister.

 
 

That's the sort of cat Luna was (I still feel a little bad for returning her). I'm still hoping the shelter finds a great new human for her.

 

Sounds like a great pair of cats.

Thanks.

She traveled from Ohio to California....going up into Wyoming and then down into Arizona...and two years later we went back across to Ohio again. Four years after that we went cross country again...that time to Oregon.

Yes, she was really well behaved. Her only flaw—which never really hurt me—was that no one was allowed to pet her but me. She'd be social and greet them and sit near them...and if you stayed long enough or visited often enough, she'd get used to you and accept a pet or two. But she mainly had eyes for me. Self-appointed bodyguard.

It seems like she was a very faithful and well-behaved cat. Didn't you travel cross-country with her to Oregon? That must have been an adventure in itself!

Thanks. Yeah, me too. Twas a huge dose of the "impermanence" lesson. This very morning, I finished writing my therapeutic memoir of our life together. I've been writing a little bit each week (in a Word file), going in chronological order and adding the best pictures I have of her.

What an adventure we had. That cat went above and beyond the normal cat "call of duty."
 
My epiphany from it all...is summed up in this quote from the pet remembrance journal I got at a pet loss support group a couple of months ago:

"Our animals shepherd us through certain eras of our lives. When we are ready to turn the corner and make it on our own...they let us go."
 

 
I guess it's time for me to turn a corner.

I remember back when you posted about losing Celi. I was shocked because I got the same sense - that she was one of those cats who'd live to a ripe old age. Wish she could have stayed with you longer {#Good-vibes}

I had always thought Ceili would be one of those cats who lived to be 20, because she was always so healthy and full of playfulness and life. Fourteen seemed so young, still (it's like a 72 year old human). I went to a pet loss support group back in October, and we all got a pet journal in which to record memories of our pet (it was created/published by the woman who facilitated the group). On the first page was written something so very touching. Something to the effect of "our pets come into our lives for specific reasons when we need them the most...and then, when they feel we're ready...they let us go."

Yeah, with the recent loss of your cat, this must've hit close to home. I enjoy following this writer on Twitter @cox_tom. He's written several books, which he describes as stories about rural life disguised as books about cats.
