If you don't know this about me, you must not know me... and for those of you who do, this comes as no shocker: I love cats!
Since an early age, I've been a huge felinophile. (I just made that up.) The very first cats I remember having were Princess and Muffin. I was maybe 4 or 5, I think. Since then, I can't remember a time in my life that I didn't have cats. They just enthrall me so! And don't get me started on kittens. I want to kiss them, hug them, eat their faces off!
Currently we have ELEVEN kittens! Before you sic PETA on me, let me explain. We live out in the country and our outdoor cats are "barn cats" but are spoiled rotten. I have friends who tell me they can't believe they are outdoor cats because they look so clean and healthy. Anyway, we have a gazillion dog houses for them and they are quite pampered for "mousers."
So lately I will tell my family that I am going outside to do something and not come back for half an hour because I will just sit and watch the kittens play. Is this something normal 27-year-old's do? If not, I'm in trouble.
And then, there's our indoor cat whose name is Koala, but we always call her "gray kitty." Why is she so lucky to get to be inside? Well, she's a genius! She housebroke herself to the doggy door and we have no litter box inside! She will either use the doggy door or wait by the back door and meow. Can't beat that!
Below you will see three pictures that show my lifelong love affair with cats. Two are from when I was like 3 or 4 and the other is my senior picture. Enjoy!
