    If you arent a cat person,why did the agency place you in a home with cats?

    I let my agency know iwill not work around pitbulls and other aggressive breed dogs.

    I'm really afraid of dogs, especially big, loud, jumping ones. I went to a new place that had two. It was such a new case they didn't have their case "info" sheet done up yet, the one w family members, special notes, pets, etc. At first I was all ready to call the agency and tell them I wouldn't go back, but for some reason I did. Turns out I'm still there two years later. They are a super family, great client, I'm there three times a week, and I really enjoy that job. I still don't like dogs but they know me now and don't bark at me much anymore. Unless a person is highly allergic, I don't recommend letting pets be a deal breaker at the beginning. You never know what you might be giving up.

    The cats were added after I took the case. I don't like the cats but for the most part they leave me alone. The air horn is what I had an issue with.

    Cats are awesome, especially a big lover-boy, like the one who was nuzzling me this evening. I don't understand how cats can be so bothersome to people (unless its an allergy). The majority of cats just keep to themselves. They aren't ear-piercingly loud, don't jump up on people like dogs do, they sleep 20 hours a day, it's hard to even know they're there.
