Friday, September 1, 2006

Okay, so I'm a slacker.  Tell me something I don't know.  I've been so distracted with Kitten (yes that's her name, think Father Knows Best) that I haven't felt like doing much else, including writing here.  So, yeah, we kept her.  =)  And, it's a she as I found out when I Googled and learned that virtually all tortoise-shell cats are female because of their gene structure.  The vet confirmed it, and omg I hate him.  He gave her so many shots, and then she got all sick and hated me.  She's been there twice now, and I wasn't even sure I was going to do vaccinations at all because of the controversy.  But since I let her out every day, I figured rabies might be important, and worms, and feline leukemia, etc.   I hope I'm done for now, and I don't intend to do boosters.  But she will need to be spayed at some point.  :(

I did get all health conscious and buy her organic food, plus all natural, perfectly blended raw food for my carnivorous kitten.  Omg, she loves that!  And, it doesn't smell all nasty like normal wet cat food.  The downside is that it's not cheap, but she's worth it.  I did save a bundle of money on cat toys though.  She loves her tennis ball, her bottle caps, and paper bags.  ;)  She plays soccer with those bottle caps until she loses them.  By then, I've usually finished another bottle of Kefir, so she gets another one.

She's met so many of my neighbors.  They all think she's a stray and try to feed her cuz she's so skinny (like owner like kitty I guess).  Plus, I haven't put a collar on her and probably won't.  I asked about micro-chipping her and heard about some huge controversy of 3 different technologies and politics and blah blah blah, so I haven't done that either.  She's very quick, smart, and knows her way home.  She grew up on the mean streets, so she's fairly savvy on staying alive.  Anyway, they all know where she lives now and haven't given me too much shit about letting her outside.  Who knew that was another whole controversy?  Almost everyone has tried talking me out of that, but she loves it.

She's so darn needy for attention; she's sleeping on my lap as I type this.  She always comes home crying and needing snuggles.  =)  How did I ever survive without my Kitten??
