    Dear Suellen,

    You are so right, planning is EVERYTHING when thinking about getting a pet. People don’t always consider the commitment that is involved when taking on the responsibility of an animal, and that is why so many older animals are filling up our shelters and foster homes.

    Having a back up plan to care for your pet is also very important, and I love your idea about a pet sitter. I have a close friend that keeps an eye on my cats (by coming to my home to care for them 2-3 times a day) when I am on vacation. Cats do not like to be taken out of their territory, so a sitter is the best way to go. I even have a marvelous vet that comes to my house, just so they don’t get stressed out. :-)

    I am so glad to hear you are thinking of adopting a black cat. As you know, I have a black cat names Roxy, and she is an absolute doll. Just remember what they say about cats. Cats are like potato chips, you can’t have just one.

    Hugs,
    Melissa
