My husband and I were lucky enough to connect with NEADY Cats, a no-kill cats-only shelter in Sterling, Massachusetts. On a one-day visit, we donated food and a Mega Milk Carton, and got to meet the shelters many residents and volunteers.
There are “cat people” and there are “dog people.” Right? Many of us identify strongly one way or the other. But is it just a personal preference or does being a cat person or a dog person reflect something deeper within us?
Scientific studies have shown that owning and spending time with cats is good for our health. But, after a lifelong relationship with cats, including the two special felines I've described in this story, I suspect that the real reason we love cats may be something else entirely.
