Hello again internet friends!
I wanted to give you a bit more of an insight to my life, and I figured there was no better way to do that than to introduce my cat! I know… it sounds kind of weird, but chances are if you know me, you know my cat. I talk about her all the time and I figured it would make much more sense to just give you a bit of background knowledge about my crazy feline!
Her name is Bambi, and she is about 3 and a half years old. I found her online and picked her up from a farm. I was told she was 2 months old when I got her, but she was just the tiniest creature you have ever seen so I knew she had to have been younger. Turns out, the vet I took her to said that she was actually about a month old. That might explain why she is kind of a nut case, since her mama wasn’t able to teach her how to behave like a proper kitty.
Bambi and I have a complete hate-love relationship. She literally knows how to push every single one of my buttons. She can be the cutest thing you’ve ever seen in your life, or she can be an absolute nightmare! If there is somewhere that I don’t want her to be (like the kitchen counter, or my laptop keyboard) or something I don’t want her to do (like chew my bathroom curtain) that is exactly where I will find her. I wouldn’t be surprised if she actually thinks her name is “No”.
She does this thing at night where she likes to sit on my window sill and slowly tap my blinds ALL night long. It is the most irritating sound in the whole world, and she knows she’s not allowed to be up there doing that, but it does not stop her. If I even flinch she bolts since she doesn’t want to be sprayed with a water bottle. She is also always in my way, especially while I am making my bed. For some odd reason, she gets really wound up when I put sheets on my bed. Don’t ask me why. I don’t get it either. She’ll dance around the bed with her back arched and her fur all puffy and she darts through the sheets. It’s cute for about 5 minutes until she starts to bite me when I tell her to get down. Her worst habit is biting! I think because of missing some of that crucial time with mama cat, she didn’t learn that it’s not nice to bite! It hurts! She usually does it when she’s playing, but she doesn’t understand the aspect of “play biting”. She bites really, really, really hard. I’ve tried so many different things to make her stop but I have been unsuccessful. I now just accept it as part of who she is.
However, even through all of her insane behaviour (and trust me…that’s not even close to half of it) I can’t imagine what life would be like without her. Cats can be so wonderful to come home to. She greets me at the door, and she is always around keeping me company and making her presence known. Even if that does mean sleeping on my homework and walking across my keyboard. She also loves candy wrappers, specifically the tinfoil ones you get off of chocolates. I can’t even so much as put the wrapper on the coffee table without her ears perking up and her eyes getting big. I literally find these things all over my house, under rugs and even inside my shoes. She is also a pen hoarder. If I lift up my carpet in my living room right now, I will more than likely find at least 3 different pens. It’s as if I don’t buy her toys! Trust me, I do! She has a whole basket of toys, that she chooses to knock over completely at her leisure.
My favourite thing about her though, is the way she comes up to me in the morning. When my alarm goes off, she climbs up on my bed and walks across my chest and lays down. She then proceeds to nuzzle my face for about 5 minutes, and then my time is up! I take full advantage of these moments with my kitty.
I must really seem like a crazy cat lady to have dedicated a whole post to my cat, but I hope that you at least enjoyed it a little bit! I can’t say you won’t hear more about her because to be honest I love to vent about how crazy she is driving me. I also take about 500 photos of her a day so I like showing off her cuteness as well. If you have a pet that you love, please feel free to leave a comment, or hey if you want to dedicate a whole blog to them like I did… I would absolutely LOVE to read it!
Thanks so much for reading!!
