Just to warn you, I have a list of names, and I will want to call you all of them; they range from Baby to Persephone (Purrr-sephone), or Lydia to Paws. I make no promises that you won’t get the cutest name in the world!
A little background on my experience with your brethren.
I’ve lived with many cats; I considered them my friends. I was young, but my family cared for at least three at all times. Mr. Peepers, Tiger, and CC, all from my young childhood of forty cat years (five human years). I think they lived good lives. Others include Jefferson, the sweetest stray in the business, nearly the love of my life. I miss him a lot too. And Reese, a cute feline that was nearly the love of my mother’s life; she had diabetes and Jefferson had feline HIV. I still find tufts of his fur on my comforter. Kitty was a little black cat who came to live with us. CC, I had for nearly ten plus years. I miss them all dearly, but don’t worry, there is more than enough room for you within my heart.
With me, you’ll live a life of luxury, I promise!
I’ll work at my desk, and you’ll jump up there and sit on my work, possibly right on top of it. I’ll ask you to leave, but you’ll sway your tail back and forth and look at me with your large eyes. You won’t move, and I won’t make you.
Please keep your litter box clean, I beg of you! Litter goes everywhere. You probably won’t, but that’s okay, I’ll just make sure my floors are hardwood. But please try to keep it neat. And another thing, I DEFINITELY won’t declaw you, but I’d like my curtains to remain intact, and maybe my furniture too, if you please. You’ll get a castle of a scratching post, plenty of yarn and toys to keep you amused, that is guaranteed.
You’ll need a lot of attention. I’ll need to clean a lot more. Cuddle time is a priority. And you’ll possibly sleep on my face every night. Oh, and there is the chance you will be moody, but that is okay too.
I will be working a lot, that I know, but when I am home, I will spend every moment with you. We will watch Law and Order, or a hallmark movie. I’ll feed you and we can eat dinners together while we relax on the couch.
I have some faults. I might disturb you when you’re sleeping, whether I walk too loudly, or I check your breathing to make sure you are okay. I get nervous easily, because I care about you. I also might not be able to pay attention all the time, whether because of paper work, or any other concern. I’ll make it up to you, just know I will never forget about you.
I will do my best to give you the affection you deserve. Don’t worry about a canine, if I were to ever adopt one, she will grow up with you as your sister and I am sure you two would get along as best as siblings could. You may have multiple brothers and sisters eventually, and we will be one pick cat-ppy family! Until then, I hope that you are as sweet and purrrfect as I know you’ll be. One day, you’ll find your way into our home. I realize the commitment I am making to you, and I accept.
