Recently, my daughter has been begging me to adopt another cat. We already have one cat named Anita. We got Anita from our county animal shelter five years ago. She had a severe anxiety disorder and it took her quite a while to get use to us. Fortunately, we have an old house that provides the cat with plenty of rooms to explore.
Last year we had a stray cat come to the kitchen door day after day for a month. Finally, I made an appointment with a veterinarian to have the cat checked out. I spent $200 getting the cat shots and an exam. My daughter called the cat Dakota. I began to allow the cat in the house for an hour at a time, but my cat and Dakota did nothing but hiss and bat at each other. After about two weeks, we stopped trying and Dakota moved on to another neighbors house.
