Traitor

I've never in my life been a cat person. I've even been known to express my distate and disregard for them. I am a lover of animals, especially dogs, but that love has never really embraced cats. In fact I am allergic to them, which really only validates my dislike for them. Having said all that I will now tell you that yesterday we bought a kitten. And I will call him a kitten until the day he dies because like I said I don't like cats. Confused? Well so am I, a little. I visited our local animal shelter as I sometimes do, and upon one visit I fell in love with this little grey kitty in a cage of three 8 week old kittens. When Neil and I went back 3 days later the little grey one was the only one left~ how can I defy fate? Tell me how I could have possibly walked away empty handed. So we adopted him. Besides being a little nervous how this will affect my nasal health I am really enjoying the little guy and Wesley seems very amused too. My love for him grew when I woke up this morning to see that he had used his litter twice in the night and had even buried his little poops. I was so proud and turned to scowl at Wes, he has yet to impress me in that way. Now we just have to think of a name.

  2. I'll submit my suggestion again...
    Marzipan. It implies cuteness, and sweetness.

  3. I know I have the inide information when it comes to naming, but I really think you should name hime Hugo Reyes but simply call him "hurley" I mean, a pet with a nick name, what could be cooler.

  4. Michelle, that's so great that you got a cat! I am going to get a cat one of these days too. Its my concilation prize for moving across the country. I've had a hard time finding one that's perfect.

    My vote is with Peter Mansbridge. Perhaps I'm biased because Chris suggested it but I think its such a great name for a cat.

  5. how about Donny, from Donny and Marie Osmond. Don't ask me why, I just thought maybe you'd like it. Actually, I don't think I really like it, maybe I just wanted to blog.
