When people buy a used home, there’s often something left behind by previous players. It might be something they forgot or something valuable. It can even be a pet they left on purpose as they didn’t want to care about anymore!
Recently, a woman named Miranda and her family moved into a new home and were quite excited about it. When they got in, they found a note on the floor. Miranda picked it up and read it – it asked the new family a favor.
As it turns out, the previous owners didn’t want to take a longtime occupant of their backyard with them. The special cat was living in their backyard for years and its previous owners didn’t like the idea of separating it from his well-known surroundings.
Miranda was hesitant at first, but then decided to see what the fuss was all about. The cat was already there, looking at the new owners through a window.
The orange cat lived there for years and the previous owners fed it every day. They even bought a pet house so he can hide from rain or snow. Miranda named the cat Raz and accepted it as family. She wasn’t so afraid of the idea, considering the fact she already had 5 cats!
Raz, however, wasn’t so sure of the new occupants. He ate the food they gave him, but was hesitant about cuddling. After several weeks, the cat let them close to him. “He always used to hide behind a bush when we were outside. Now, he’s happy enough to hang out, especially when he’s hungry,” Miranda says.
The cat has an old injury that needs to be checked by a doctor. Miranda says they’re not up to that point in their ‘relationship’ yet, but over time, they feel like Raz will allow it. For now, they’re happy with his purring.
Read these characteristics which almost all cat lovers have in common:
INTROVERTED AND SENSITIVE
It’s the nature of cats that they are not friends with everybody, and the same trait can be seen in their owners too. Usually, they live alone and are happy with their independent lifestyle. They are introverts but are comfortable hanging around with other people. However, they would need some me-time to relax and recharge.
CAT LOVERS LEAN TO LEFT
It has been observed that people with liberal political leanings prefer cats over dogs. You might be a liberal dog lover or a conservative cat owner; if you’re a liberal, you love cats and vice versa.
CAT OWNERS ARE OPEN-MINDED
Five traits – conscientiousness, neuroticism, extraversion, agreeableness, and openness are often seen in most cat lovers. As compared to dog owners, people who have cats as pets are more open and therefore, have greater artistic creativity.
Just like their pets, cat lovers seek attention from people around them. They like to be the centre of all conversations. At times, cat owners rely on their pets for emotional support.
THEY RESPECT CATS MORE THAN ANYONE
Cat people respect cats more than humans, in general. The saddest sight for a cat lover is to see the animal on the streets without a home. Cat lovers are often seen making a special effort to rescue or rehabilitate homeless cats.
