Meow! I am John, a cat sitter in Houston, TX

Cats love me. I don't know why, but they just seem to gravitate to me. I think what they like is that I don't try to push myself on them, so they figure they are in charge.

My cat Sylvester I had for 19 years. I found him abandoned around 7 weeks old at a neighbor's garage, took him in intending to feed him and bring him to ASPCA, and after he eat and without any prompting he walked up to me -- with his little kitten belly all full and looking like a snake that just swallowed a pig -- he jumps in my lap, says one tiny Meow and then curls up and goes to sleep. Damn it! I knew there was no escape. Nineteen years later, in my lap is how he left me: waited for me to get home, jumped up in my lap, made a small Meow, curled up and went to sleep, and it was a bit later that I realized that during the nap he had passed away. To this day, I'm entirely grateful for such a calm, peaceful way to go.

My second cat, Cato, a Begal, I had for 11 years. What a personality: most cats go hide when people visit, yet Cato would walk among people during cocktail parties basking in the attention. People I haven't spoken to in years still ask about Cato when I run into them. Cato passed away in 2019 from cancer. This was much harder since we had to be at the Vet's office and I had to make The Decision.

So I'm taking a year or two off from pet ownership just to take a breather. However I still want to interact with cats, which is I've signed up as a sitter and soon will be fostering at home. Short-time "cat rentals" !
