I've been very lucky over the years with on-going physical problems - taken all in all - but most of my animals (not just my cats) have had problems either with injuries when I first got them or because of early abuse. I wouldn't swap any of them for so much as a minute.

I'll switch for Blacky for the bratz, Cali and Charlee.

my family always had horrible luck with cats, until we didn't, the ones I remember from being little: Daisy had a disease the vet couldn't even diagnose and eventually had to be put down, Pinky was an indoor/outdoor cat (she was quite wild/feral and was a terror to all neighborhood small animals) and was hit by a car, and then my maine coon, Molly (who was so sweet and so smart), had cancer... soo, all died by age 4.

I am so lucky to have Stellaluna, especially for my first cat. Other then being on deaths door as a kitten, she has never been sick since **knock on wood**. She has never made a potty outside the litty, never even complained if I had to use the cheap brand one week. Shes been through sooo much with me and just keeps bouncing right back. <3

I'm lucky to have Cuddles, walk into my house at 8 weeks old. In my eyes he's a model looking cat and he hasn't had ANY behavioral problems, even though he was a feral. He won't eat patte, but otherwise he's ok

Simba was adopted at 10 weeks old and he had some mighty allergies which made his eyes run like a faucet, but 1/2 pill of Zyrtec daily fixed that! He's a naughty little purring machine and he gets along great with his big brother.

At least once a week my girlfriend and I voice our appreciation and thanks to God for sending us two little angels.

I don't know if I would adopt a cat with behavior or health problems, but I'll definitely adopt an older cat (or two) next time, to let them live their remaining lives with comfort and love.
