I am the luckiest girl in the world. At least, this week I am. I get to kitty sit for my friend who is currently in Orlando. She asked me back in August if I would take care of her cat when she was away. She didn’t have anyone else to watch over the cat. Even before I knew that, I said yes right away. I would never give up this chance to take care of a little bundle of fur.
Some of you may know this already, but the thing I want most in the world right now is a kitty. I don’t care if it’s a kitten or an older cat, it just has to be a feline. Heck, I’d go for a tiger if it was plausible. I LOVE cats and I miss my two kitties that I had growing up. They are currently 14 & 15 and are living with my brother at his house. I get to see them occasionally, but they are getting quite old I really want a furry fluff ball all of my own.
I bet you are wondering, well, why don’t I just go and get a cat then?! One word: Peter. My husband. He hates pets. I don’t know how that is possible, but it is. He has no desire to have any kind of animal in the house. He just won’t let me get a cat. Sure, I could go and get a cat and bring it home against his wishes, but that would lead to a lot of fighting and he would probably make me get rid of it anyway. I sort of knew about his aversion to animals when I married him, but I sure didn’t know the extent of it. He usually gives in and lets me get whatever I want, but this is the only thing he has stood his ground firmly on. It’s weird. I thought for sure that I would get him to budge. Nope. No budging.
So I am floating on cloud 9 this week as I spend as much time as I can with this lovely kitty. I LOVE HIM already. It’s going to be hard for me when he goes back to his house. I have grown so attached already. And I like to think he likes me too. He follows me around and meows if I don’t pay attention to him. His name is Monaco and here are some glamour shots:
I was hoping that having this kitty here for the week, Peter would see how much it means to me to have a cat. I don’t seem him budging any time soon. I don’t think he has as much as touched the kitty. He is not interested at all. It’s sad really. The first thing he said when the kitty arrived was, “That is the ugliest thing I have ever seen.” NO WAY. He is the cutest thing in the entire world!!
Oh well, I will never give up asking Peter to get a furbaby and I am going to enjoy these next 5 days as best as I can.
