All About Pets

Bitty Girl has ALWAYS been crazy.  I see people with their kittehs, all snuggly, letting their humans carry them, etc., Bitty Girl never did that.

Why can't you be normal?

You're still cute, though.

Lily, my first cat, 9 years ago.  She is a total bitch and it's that sole reason why she lives with my mom.  She refused to live with Apolo and Logan, her brothers from another litter, and even lunged at Apolo once.  Bitch.  But, I love her. 

"You think I look bad?  Shit, you should see them."

This is what happens when you're a bitch and you take on the racoons, you wear the Cone of Shame. 

My Lily, plant killer and guard dog.

Logan is all sorts of needy and whiny, but remarkably, he's the alpha male.  He has no balls so I don't get it.  I just notice that he calls the shots and he gives looks to the others and they back away.  Odd. 

Because I can. 

One of these days, I am going to buy this and find out, once and for all, what the fuck they do all day.  Maybe I'll just get shots of the couch.

Boochie, Apolo and Logan many years ago.  Sigh.

Watching me eat dinner, praying that a crumb fell or I had mercy on those eyes.  I did.  I'm a sucker.

It wasn't always cats.  I had a dog once, for about a month. 

His name was Atticus and he was magical.  Then, he grew a bit bigger than the cats and started playing a bit too rough with them.  They didn't like it so they started hiding.  They were never hiders so, I made the choice of giving him away.  The cats won, they were here first.  He was a good dog, other than the aforementioned, and was crate-trained. 

They know me well at the vet's.

I think it goes without saying that all of your posts are awesome. Humorous, entertaining, thought-provoking, genuine.

But this is, by far, THE. FUNNIEST. POST. EVER. I am dying over here. My mouth has been gaping open in silent laughter for the last 5 minutes.

"This is what happens when you're a bitch and you take on the racoons, you wear the Cone of Shame." HAHAHAHA.

Holy crap, Margie.

The movie Up made me laugh and cry, a lot. WTF, Disney? But that Cone of Shame business took the cake. Mmm, cake.

Thanks for the compliments, Ali. I can't take credit for it all, those damn cats are something else.
