My little boy
« on: April 08, 2016, 07:41:24 am »
If you'll all permit me to be self-indulgent for a moment...I'd like to introduce you to the man in my life, Willie (or Sir Willie to some).



He's an absolute ham for the camera.



And although he looks dignified in many photos...



He's really as silly a cat as they come.



Willie came into my life after my mother passed away in 2013. From the moment I met him at the shelter I could see how much personality he had. He was already three years old and was talkative and a food thief, two traits he has NOT grown out of. He's also extraordinarily affectionate. Though he'll run from strangers at first glance, he'll come back out later and tentatively seek to be petted. With me he likes to flop on his back to gaze at me with lovesick eyes, roll all over me when I'm trying to watch TV or read a book, grab at my face, chew my hair, get under my feet when I'm walking, and talk talk talk in a hilariously squeaky voice.

I adore him!

Recently Willie has cost this lioness a fortune in both money and emotional turmoil, first needing surgery to remove a whole lot of teeth and then by all appearances chewing on the leaf a lily (EXTREMELY toxic to cats, which I didn't know until I looked it up!) and needing to be rushed to the vet and kept for 48 hours receiving fluids. That in particular was a terribly scary and difficult experience, but we got through it and he's back at home being extra silly and sweet to make up for it. As I do with most people I've probably rambled on too long about him, so I'll wrap this up. Anyone else have a cat who's the companion of their heart? I'd love to hear about them!

Oh gods, he's adorable. He looks like a cat of mine who passed a year ago, named Mr. Bighead Stupo. He sounds just as sweet.
KARMA: You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.

He is a sweetheart, and that is a great name your cat had. I'm sorry for your loss.

I'm a big fan of both. :) Having a dog is part of my life goals for down the road but right now Willie is enough. My feeling is that he wouldn't take well to sharing me with another animal.
