I was here first! My name is Dusty!

My name is Dusty and I should have gotten top billing since I was here first before Peaches and Skippy joined our household. But I guess as the old saying goes...better late than never!

I actually chose my people and wanted to live with them. I had an original home but did not like it so I ran away. For a while, I was living on the street behind my two legged parents, but when the lady who was feeding me moved, I started checking out the neighborhood and found my new home.

You can tell when people really like cats and dogs and my new family likes both!

They found out one time when I was sick that I had a microchip so they located my first home. It all worked out well in the end and the first people who had me agreed after I ran away again that the people I had personally chosen could keep me.

I like it here and consider myself to be the boss over the other four leggers in this home. I am pretty pleased with myself that I help keep them in line...especially the dog! I really don't know why my people like dogs. In my opinion, cats rule!

Anyone can see that you are clearly the top dog, er cat, in your home.

You'd like ole Grayboy. He's my Russian blue. He's a fan of people.

Hi, this sounds like a cat we had called Ostaria she was so small but ran the house like everything was here. Cats are adorable.

Well, you're one smart cat! Good for you that you chose the best house in the neighborhood! Not only the house, but the best parents to look after you and give you choice food.

It would be interesting to know why you ran away from your first home, but I guess that's a story we won't hear unless you tell it. I'm glad you were able to pick a home you liked better.

So glad that you got to stay in your chosen place, it obviously suits you and your people!

Hello, Dusty. I have four cats at home so you can come to visit. We would be delighted to welcome you! emoticon :smile:

Ha ha I was going to say exactly what Feisty56 wrote! She read my mind. Oh well, glad you've got everyone under control over there!

Dusty, you are clearly a cat who is certain of what you want. I don't doubt that you are the ruler of the catdom there.

What a great story you have, Dusty! And what a great family you belong to - writing seems to run in the family!

Wow, you are one smart cat with being able to find your own home like that! :)
