Question DetailsAsked on 5/29/2011

What type of cat should I get next?

We had a black cat, Carl. He chewed everything. I have no advice. Nothing we tried worked. He was destructive, mischievous, fearless, unpredictable, and fun. I wouldn't have traded him for anything. He escaped through the garage door one night, and was killed by a neighbor's dog. It's hard to replace a cat like that.

Sorry to hear about Carl. Toms are the best aren't they? I've got one, Oliver, that absolutely loves chewing on my feet. He'll wake us up in the morning and bite our toes until we pet or feed him. My other, Cheese, loves to chew on plastic. Any kind of plastic will do. Nothing like getting up in the morning and fighting off a 11lb toe biter and finding little-bitty teeth marks all over the bottom of the shower curtain you just put up yesterday. Gotta love 'em though, don't ya?

Siamese are great climbers and rippers of curtains. Our "American Short hair" stray ripped up a sofa so badly I had to pay to have it hauled away. The vet called her "feisty" when she was a kitten. Another managed to unhook the upholstery on the back of a chair without any ripping--we were able to fix it with pliers and lots of pulling. All were females. Our male, newest, just rips up his cat stand. Bought the Siamese. The rest were cats that moved in under or on the deck.

I'm sorry to hear about your kitty. They truly become part of the family. Why not go down to your local humane society or animal shelter and see what kinds of cats they have for adoption? You just might find one that tugs at your heart strings and you'll be saving a life at the same time.
