"a no-name slob"

the cat i never wanted is curled up at my feet with his tail over his eyes, all four paws wrapped around my leg, and his cold, wet, nose squished between my toes.
he is exactly my kind of cat, except that i never wanted him.
omar and i took several quizzes and compatibility surveys before we got married. the one and only that we agreed on completely, every time: NO PETS. having come from pet-filled households, we both have experienced the hard work that goes into caring for a creature, and weve both felt the pain of losing one we loved dearly. we appreciate people that have pets, grant them kudos, and recognize that we are not pet-people. we like humans. like eachother. or our friends. or babies. or strangers. anything but pets.

we offered to cat-sit our friends blue eyed bundle of baby kitten for a few weeks while she figured out her living situation. she never came back to get him. that was a year and a half ago.

and thus was born our joyful little lover of a cat. that im still allergic to. that we tried to give away on myspace. that is fast asleep with my foot as his pillow. he's a calm cat that doesnt ask for alot besides food once a day, an open toilet to drink from, and cuddles. lots of cuddles.

oh, and he is the prettiest cat that ever lived. and humble too. please don't tell him how good-looking he is, we dont want him to get a big head.

by the way, he doesnt have a name (think Breakfast at Tiffany's). we just call him "kitty."

How sweet.

We're not pet people either. SO i feel you on that one. I WANT so BADLY to be a dog lover, and someday I will be. I can't believe I had guinea pigs, stinky, gross furry poop flinging out of their cages, guinea pigs for 4 years.

just getting back into blog reading and caught this post. being a MASSIVE cat lover i must say that i cannot relate to it at all - but it was still funny. :) 'Kitty' is soooo beautiful! looks like you've been blessed by an angel with fur. :)
