  • Feb 4 2012: I would regard yourself and 2 cats as family. Just because your animals can't speak in our language shouldn't have any bearing.Animals can become your family. They need your love and attention. It's imperitive.I feel, you are not wasting ANY of your affection, time or money. Clearly, Rhona was being judgemental. Don't take it personal.I am sure you have people in your life as well. As far as I'm concerned, The three of you already are family! In every sense of the word!!
