Sir Hubble wants to know: Doesn’t Oliver look like me?
I have to confess that I am jealous of the time Mamma Cat spends on the Internet. Purrsonally I think that she wastes too much time hanging out online doing lots of research, writing stories, and “chatting” with kitty lovers; many of whom she will never meet in her entire lifetime!
But I really began to understand why she gets so friendly with these folks. Yesterday afternoon we all got to meet Christine; one of her friends she met online. This very pretty two-legged furless lady is for sure an avid kitty lover. Mamma Cat found her on “Facebook”. She really flipped out when she saw a photo of Oliver, one of Christine’s cats. In fact, apparently Oliver and I look so much alike that we could be brothers! Poppa Cat was also amazed when he got to see Oliver’s photo; but when Mamma Cat showed it to me, I felt I was gazing at my reflection.
Christine showed us more of her kitty photos, including one of Owen- a little chocolate point Siamese kitten who was very lucky to have found her. He isn’t old enough yet to become part of her family, and she can hardly wait until May when she can take him home! I know that I will be talking more about him in the near future!
Speaking of reflection- I would like to reflect on yesterday’s visit. Christine is a special lady who simply adores cats. From the minute she saw Aki, my little brother, she fell in love with him. She also thought that Edgar Allen Poe was a handsome devil. I loved the way she talked to me about Oliver.
I just wish that Aki wasn’t so skitterish around strangers- especially if they happen to be ardent felinophiles. I mean, I could totally understand it if they hated cats. We are so sensitive to those of that ilk!!
I kinda felt sorry for Christine since Aki was too scared to snuggle up in her lap. It would have been fun for her to be able to hear rumbling purr. Aki needs to get used to company so he can show off for folks he hasn’t yet met. I think it would be helpful if Mamma and Poppa Cat socializes more with the two-legged furless ones! I’m going to suggest this to them as soon as I am feeling better. Since I am the elder kitty around here, they always heed my advice.
However, unfortunately I’m not feeling very well at all this morning! Mamma Cat got worried and called one of the Pretty Lady Doctors who told her to bring me to the hospital right away! Poppa Cat is taking me there and we all hope that she can quickly make me feel better. But I am sure that Mamma Cat will keep y’all posted.
This said, while y’all waiting, I do have a question for my fellow kitties. Do you get skitterish when new people visit your home? Tell me in a comment.
