When people hear me say that I love my cat, they snicker. I don’t care, let them. She really is special to me in ways that they will never understand. Of course she has her quirks, not that they are bad. One example is that she will knock her food bowl over, she will also push the cup I use to scoop her food into the bowl onto the floor. She does this when she’s hungry and it is her way of communicating with me.
She used to be thicker when we adopted her, but over the time she has been able to slowly loose some of that weight.
In general she is a lot healthier now, save a birth defect that doesn’t actually inhibit her.
When little princess heart is thirsty she knows that I will give her water. So how does she communicate this? She will topple over empty water bottles and plastic cups if she can find them. One point to note here, just like with the bowl and measuring cup she has never knocked over anything with liquid in it nor does this apply to anything made of glass.
I think it’s a pretty smart, but then she is my cat, and it is her way to communicate with me. Sure it can be annoying in the middle of the night, but it is still benign.
Another thing about her, she is cligy. Not in a bad way. She just loves being around you. She will follow me around everywhere, but she just wants to be close, she is not overly affectionate which could lead her to get into the way. No. She’s an independent little girl, and this might make you think that she is stand-offish but she is not. A nice example is when I go into a different part of the house. She will get up and follow me if she knows that I am not coming back right away.
We used to have a little game.
The title of the game is “I Want To Pee In Peace.”
The rules were simple. When I would initiate a game of “I Want To Pee In Peace” by actually trying to do so in peace her part was: “I want the kitty cuddles, dammit!”
The fun doesn’t stop there though. We have another game. She is a big hugger. And she will do so with her claws out. This has brought way to another game call: “Pass the Princess.” The reason is because it is actually easier to pass her to someone else that put her down on the floor. It doesn’t matter who it is, she loves to cuddle, she is like a little baby. Here is how our little game works. If you find yourself in possession of Princess you have to sneak up behind somebody, lean over, and then like a facehugger she will latch on to the next person. Then she will spend time cuddling with her.
The only time that this is really a problem though is when you are wearing a sweater or something like that.
Her previous family actually had her certified as a therapy cat, but we never took her anywhere because you would need to get her claws capped.
