  1. Number 4: They give unconditional love!

  2. One of the best decisions I ever made was to adopt a “less desireable” cat from the shelter last year. I went in looking for a kitten or young female cat. But I ended up with an all-black male senior cat. His adoption fee was free because he was “old” and “undesireable.” I didn’t really want him either initially. He looked scraggly and had yellow teeth, but he picked me by jumping up on my lap and purring and kneading. That unconditional, tender love has continued since I brought him home. We saved each other for sure — the cliche is true.
