Cats and cars

My personal human experiment has partly failed. My spouse got a car. I had this eco-romantic view of us leading an environmentally friendlier (urban) life without a car, relying on public transport, carpooling, and rental cars. I know it is possible but apparently not in our family. I am still going to ride the bus. However, when I asked I was told that I would be allowed in the car too. Sarcastic great.

We might give a new home for a cat or two. Or three. Actually, there are four of them needing a new place to stay. How can I say no when we can give a home to a car? Cats are great! No sarcasm. I would be the one taking care of the cat since it would be my pet. Well, most probably two cats. A cat needs company, right?

By the way, I happen to know that cats and cars are not necessarily a very good match. My dear deceased cat detested car rides. Apparently he felt unsure of himself, as his territory was long gone. He used to inform us about his disgust by meowing loudly and vomiting. These unforgettable days might be ahead of me again if the cat is allowed in the car too. Or most probably two cats.
