About ten days ago I took home a stray six week old Siamese kitten from the job site where I work. On the drive home and on the first night at my apartment, this kitten was very well behaved. On the second night, and thereafter, this kitten was overactive in biting me and climbing on me when I was trying to use my computer, eat, and sleep.
I thought that this kitten did not have enough to do, so I went to the Woofta Pet Store in Dickinson to buy him some toys. I had not been to the Woofta Pet Store in Dickinson for about three years. I remembered that they had some pets for sale inside their store, but I had not remembered that they had so many cats and kittens in their store that were up for adoption.
Right when I walked in, they had the largest cat that I have ever seen in a cage all by himself. He was larger than most wild Bobcats. It looked like he weighed at least thirty pounds, and his hind feet were larger than most dog hind feet. He appeared to be about ten years old.
I asked the manager of the pet store what kind of cat this was, and she said that they didn’t know, he had been a stray alley cat that someone had caught. He didn’t look up, move, or pay any attention to me.
The next cat that I saw, was the 2nd largest cat that I had ever seen. He was a very healthy looking orange cat, with bright green eyes. He came over to the bars of the cage he was in, and looked at me. I couldn’t believe that someone put this cat up for adoption, he was such a nice looking, big, healthy cat.
I went and looked at the other cats and kittens in the cages throughout the store. A few of these cats, had slight injuries, like a couple of toes missing. I would have liked to have taken four or five of these cats with me, and I certainly could have if I was back at my home in Idaho on five acres. But at my apartment in Dickinson, I was not permitted to have any animals at all in the building where I lived.
I told one of my friends about the cats and kittens that I had seen, and he would have probably wanted to adopt one of them, but he already has a dog and a cat that were abandoned.
I had intended to go back to the Woofta Pet Store sooner, to ask to take a video of the largest cat that I had ever seen, and the second largest cat that I had ever seen, but I did not get back there until today. Both of these cats had been adopted. I was sorry that they weren’t there, but I was glad that they both got adopted.
I had intended to make a video of these two particular cats, to get people’s attention about what cats they had at the Woofta Pet Store in Dickinson, but since they weren’t there, I made a video of the other cats and kittens:
