A Letter To My Future Cat

To My Purr-Fect Cat

A Letter To My Future Cat
just cute animals

Dear Kitty,

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.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
