Two and a half months ago, I fell in love! An adorable little fur ball came to my door, the runt of the litter and the one nobody seemed to want. Funny, if those people that turned their nose up at her then could see her now, well, their loss is our gain. Baby, as we named her, became a fixture in my studio almost instantly. I say almost because she took over the rest of the apartment first, starting with the couch. Over the past 10 weeks, she's grown into quite a beauty! She's gone from a fuzzy kitten to a stunning young lady. She's also grown into quite a beast! And I do mean beast! She has personality plus and has no fear. She loves to jump and run and attack (especially my hand, which, for some reason, she seems to think tastes like some sort of meat, she won't bother with Misty's hand at all, but let's face it, that's pretty much all bone). She has also developed quite the list of demands which include soft food at breakfast and supper (not sure when that is, don't worry, she'll let you know), free access to the windows, open please, so she can feel the breeze, and free reign over the entire premises. She's climbed my easel, and made it 3/4 of the way up before it fell on her and she's stuck her nose in my paint water. But that's okay. We've learned that because she sleeps all day, playtime begins somewhere between 11:30 and midnight. Her personality is oddly like Misty's, gorgeous, smart, sweet and loving (selectively) and ready to rip your face off. We couldn't have picked a better companion.
Misty has taught her how to give "kissies" and she will do it exactly once upon request, she won't do it twice and you better have a reward ready. She loves to cuddle, on her time and terms and only on her time and terms. When she's done with the love, she'll bite and kick, but she won't go any further than about 3 feet away. She loves us, I can tell.
I used to laugh at those pet owners who treated their pets like little humans. I can't do that anymore. Baby is our special girl, and we talk to her, and she sleeps in our bed and she gets only filtered water and grain free, corn free, all meat, all natural food. She eats as well as we do! She's our sweet girl and she's given us a lot of joy in 10 weeks, and I'm sure she'll give us plenty more in years to come. She's sleeping on my carry on suitcase during the day when it's hot, I think she knows we're going to Spain in a month. No worries, we have great care lined up for her and I know she'll have a blast with her "babysitters".
