So, if you’ve never had a cat, you may not know how lazy they are. I don’t think they’re lazy necessarily, but they definitely seem lazy. I think cats actually might need the 20 hours of sleep they get each day. I don’t know.
Anyway, just wanted to show you all what Kitty does while we work:
Only after she realizes I’m taking pictures of her, does she awake:
I think in this one, she’s telling me with her eyes that she wants me to leave her alone so she can continue with her beauty rest:
Thanks Kitty, for all your contributions around the house. For pooping in the litter box for us. For eating the food we buy you. For sticking your foot in your water bowl before you drink it (I don’t know what she does that but she does it every time!). And also, thanks for all the lovely cat fur you leave behind on our bed, carpet, couch, dining room chairs, etc. I love you! (Sticky Buddy, where are you??? I ordered you like 2 months ago!)
Actually, I really do love Kitty. She is so sweet. We have a new cat now (Sterling) and he’s been pretty mean to our two cats since we got him. Tommy and Kitty have been real troopers through the whole adjustment. (Right now Tommy’s snoring, which gives me peace of mind because they’ve both been a bit on edge with Sterling around).
But I’ll always have a special place in my heart for Kitty. My first pet that I’ve ever paid to take care of. When I was younger, we always had animals, at least a cat. I fed them, pet them, and played with them, but I never had to pay for their food or take them to the vet or anything. Now I have all those lovely responsibilities.
But for real now, my favorite thing about Kitty is that she will always lay on my lap. She loves flannel PJs. She likes to stretch out on my lap while Kyle and I are sitting in bed watching our tv shows on the laptop, a day later after they’re released on tv. That is her spot. And she always has to have her head facing my feet and she likes to stretch her arms down below my knees, which makes my legs feel claustrophobic for some reason, but Kitty won’t have it any other way. She thinks she’s the queen of the house, and sometimes I go ahead and let her believe that to be true.
Do you feel a special connection with one (or more) of your pets? Are you an animal lover like me? Do you think Kitty is cute, or do you hate cats, like my best friend’s dad?
