....for this one. I fell in love with her.
Let me introduce you to Kitty. I can't give her a real name because she is not mine and I cannot keep her, but I love her and want to show her to you anyway.
Isn't she just wonderful? The thing of it is, this is not just any old cat. You see, I can't stand cats. I am a dog person. Dogs are fun, they play, they cuddle, they want to be with people all the time, and overall, they have a ton of personality. Cats are stubborn, boring, and pretty much hate people in most cases. Or...they pick one person they like and then hiss at everyone else on the planet. Thus, I am a dog person. Of course, the fact that I have been HORRIBLY allergic to cats for my entire life might play into my dislike for them. You know...anything that automatically makes your eyes burn like fire and stream down rivers of tears beside your suddenly non-functional nose which is trying desperately to accommodate for the complete lack of breathing that your mouth seems to be dealing with....that sort of makes you dislike that thing. Just say'n.
Sooooo....that being said, I was caught a bit off guard by this little wonder of sweet little kittiness! She is amazingly dog-like in nature! She followed me around wherever I went and she wanted to cuddle and be close and she would purr so adorably when I rubbed her sweet little head. And those EYES! Seriously, folks....how cool are THOSE? Totally yellow and creepy even though she is totally cute and adorable! She really is the sweetest cat in the whole wide world. So sweet, that I almost committed to taking drugs for the rest of my life just so she could live with me. Then I came to my senses....
...or my husband gently brought my senses back to me. One or the other? LOL! Actually, he was really funny about it. He thought she was adorable, too, so he didn't touch her or get overly close because he KNEW if he did we would instantly own a cat! LOL! Kitty is a stray. Although, after talking to a few people, I think she now has a home. I'm just sad that it isn't my home. She even matches the dogs, so we could still wear black stuff and only have to avoid whites! I'm not sure what Maggie and Thatcher would have thought of her. I know Thatcher doesn't like attention being taken from her, but she loves to cuddle and it would be so cute for her to have a kitty to cuddle with! Maggie would probably ignore her for most of the time until she did something useful like climb on the counter and bring food down for everyone! LOL! Then Maggie would be best friends with her! LOL! But, alas, she is not ours. She can't be ours. I really can't have a cat. But I do have these wonderful photos to remember the sweetest kitty I've ever met in my life.
P.S. She was much more intereted in cuddling than having her picture taken and I took these with my cell, so I apologize for the so-so photos, but you can see her sweetness anyway.
I love her. I'm such a SUCKER for a cute animal! I swear if I ever run into a cute skunk who happens to be friendly BEWARE! I'll probably try to take her home! LOL!
