My cat is weird.
I’ve had pets for most of my life. They ranged from hamsters and fish to cats and dogs. I’m an animal lover. My last apartment had a strict no pets policy. The landlord’s children had severe allergies. I can’t imagine having something as cute and cuddly as a puppy or kitten around and not being able to play with it. Poor kids :(
I lived there for 12 years, it was nice. Previously I had moved almost on a yearly bases. It felt good to have
someplace steady to call home even without pets and as a single man (most of the time) having almost no responsibilities was a good thing. My job consisted of a lot of travel and not having to worry about a little bundle of dependant love saved me from having more gray hair than I do currently.
Things changed last year when I bought a condo. I was now master of my own domain (as long as I kept up the mortgage payment) I could put pictures on the wall without having to worry about getting my security deposit back. I could also have a pet once again.
About a year after moving we went to PAWs and adopted a kitten. Her name is Kiki and she is a very interesting cat. I’ve had many cats but none like this one. They all had unique personalities but none with the range as this one. Kiki likes to play fetch, just like a dog…odd but not unheard of. She has full conversations with you while looking you in the eye… interesting. She likes water… NO WAY! Yup. She bats at water coming out of the faucet. She drinks water coming out of the faucet.
She camps out in sink. She jumps in the shower only jumping out if she gets water in her eye. She drinks out of any glass anywhere that contains water, yes even if you are currently holding it. She puffs her tail up for no apparent reason and walks around not like when they bristle their fur and hunch their back for a fight, just puffs up the tail .. kinda cute. She follows you from room to room chatting and sometimes heals like a dog. If I’m watching television or working on the computer she plants herself squarely in the center of the screen making it impossible to see anything but her… very calculating.
She’s little over a year old and I’m really curious to see what else she comes up with.read more
