Cat Companion
« on: May 13, 2017, 03:47:36 PM »
About 2 years ago, our 20+ year old cat died.  We went to the local shelter and picked up a beautiful 2 year old cat.  We wanted her to be an indoor cat, but she had other designs, so we have been taking her for daily supervised walks.  Around Christmas time she made friends with a feral cat in the neighborhood.  He sort of adopted us and is now more of an indoor cat than she is.  He is lying at my feet as I type this, so I guess we have sort-of adopted him.  He is still feral regarding other people, but likes hanging around me and my son, who lives with me.  Cats are wonderful friends!

I live alone, so It would be too quiet & dead without pets in the house. Some substitute living alone by going out a lot or too much. But that could wind up costing a small fortune in costs of whatever you're attending, & in transportation costs... especially if you go out a lot.

I used to like to go out more & travel when I was younger. But being a "home" person, being on the road for work a lot made me too homesick, making me want to be even more of a home person.

I was raised in a home of 6 kids. With parents that's, 8 people under 1 roof, along with a dog, cat, bird, & hundreds of fish in several fish tanks. So even when I moved out on my own, it was natural for me to always share my home with roommates or partner. Most rentals don't allow cats or dogs, but would allow fish & birds. So I always had at least fish & birds in the house. Yep, even my fish were well domesticated, & friendly (some fish & birds are smarter than others).

When a partner moved in with his cat (1980s), he never took care of or played with the cat much, so the cat almost instantly adopted me because I was the one playing with him, bushing him, & cuddling. Sometimes I'd even let out all the birds & we all played together. He learned to be nice with my birds. That cat was at my side the whole time I was home, even sleeping on or beside me. I made up my mind back then, that I'd never live anywhere that doesn't allow at least cats anymore.

The place I currently live, doesn't allow pets. But because my cats & I had good references from the other places I lived, they made an exception.

The entertainment value alone far exceeds the worth of cable TV. Plus I get all that cuddling, affection, & occasional adventure... even a fly getting in the house is a big adventure for them.

I find I have a hard time falling asleep these days unless the cats are sleeping right beside me. The past couple days have been suddenly warmer, so they don't want to cuddle up as much. I've been discovering one sleeping in a box in back, & the other sleeping in the dirty laundry hamper... so now he smells like my socks.

Once they get used to the warmer weather, they'll get back to normal, except for the hottest summer days. They're anti-social on hot days... don't like heat at all. I have AC, but I only use it just enough to make the place bearable or help me breathe on hot or humid days rather than run the AC enough to make it very cool.

Yesterday it got pretty hot up here before I tuned the AC on. The cats immediately ran to the AC for the cool breeze. Without AC, with fans in the windows, on an 80F day outside, it can get over 90F in here. This place would probably be uninhabitable in the hot summer without AC to most people.

Kitties just turned 5 years old this month. It's been a wonderful 5 years with them. They give me a lot of comfort,  joy, & entertainment.

It's always a good idea to get 2 cats if you live alone & there's no other pets in the house -- preferably from the same litter so they get along. It prevents them from getting bored, going nuts, or developing obsessive compulsive behaviors. It gives them something to interact with when people are busy or not home.

Most cats are 1-person animals, where even in a house with many people they will single out 1 person they prefer over the others... and that's not necessarily the one who feeds them that they prefer, but the one they have the most fun with, or feel the most comfortable & safe with. They may ignore or run away from anybody else, or try to get along with others that the cat sees are close to "their" person.

Once a cat is used to going outdoors it's hard to break the habit. You need to show the cat lots of indoor adventures, playtime, cuddling, & brushing. Possibly encourage the other pets or people to join in some play.

It's gradual break-in because you can't force a cat to do or like anything. They'll wind up adopting a neighbor instead, or prefer just being alone rather than deal with the stress of being forced into stuff.

There are no free sites. Somebody has to pay for them & their servers. Usually you're paying for them in sinister ways that most of you know nothing about. Ads don't pay what they used to, & most have ad blockers anyway. The big money is in data-mining. That's collecting as much info about you as they can through hidden scripts, & malware to sell to the highest bidders. The bidders are advertisers, governments, & criminals.

When you visit other sites, & some sissy & ABDL sites, you may suddenly get a virus, an unwanted, hard to remove tool bar, or have your financial & bitcoin info stolen. They paid the site owner to put it on their system, or were forcefully installed on their system because the sites were poorly managed, & not very secure.

Nothing is more embarrassing than getting on the internet when other people are around to just check the news or weather, & there's sissy or diaper ads showing on the screen. That's what data mining does. It's paid to tell all advertisers, bidders, & your browsers that you visit sissy or ABDL sites.

You won't get that crap from Betty's. We are solely funded by donations from our users, & out of my pocket. All of our servers, sites, backups, & mirrors are regularly scanned by at least 3 different antivirus/anti-malware programs.

And I'm not stupid enough to save our only backups just on the servers or the cloud. I also back up everything by downloading it all to home external hard drives not regularly connected to the computer. Those home copies are also scanned by 3 different programs for malware.

Your privacy, safety, & security are very important to me. I probably spend more time on the safety, privacy, & security at Betty's than anything else on the sites.

So when America is having their big Thanksgiving feast next week, please remember I will still be eating rice, beans, or Ramen soup as usual while working hard for YOU!

I'm really not making money here. Server, web, & software costs almost always exceed the donations I get. YouTube generates about $25-$27 a month for me since this summer. My only other income is just from what people drop off to my house to fix. It's almost always poor people, who don't have much, so I don't make much on it. If they have much money, they just buy a new computer instead.

Please donate to keep us around, or visit the other places that use more sinister ways to get their money, & are so poorly managed, they're not safe. Yeah they may safe again today, but were they last month, & will they be safe next week? When they're not safe, it will be a surprise, & you probably won't know about it until it's too late.

Please Help! Support Bettys! There's nothing like it on earth, although many tried to imitate us over the years. We're the oldest, longest running sissy or ABDL site in the world!

Should it be really necessary for me to starve or risk eviction every month running it, while everybody else doing the same thing is getting rich off of you & your personal info?
