I read somewhere recently that cats are simultaneously annoying and adorable. This is the absolute truth. You all know that Chester is my sweet little kitty, my muse, and my cuddle bud. This will be another post about how much he means to me. The picture above is of him after I put his sweater on him the other day and he decided to run under the shoe rack. 🙂
Here’s another one:
I adopted him almost 2 years ago and can’t believe he’s almost that old! I remember when he was just a little tiny baby when we first brought him home. The vet told us that Chester might start sneezing when we brought him home because most kittens from the shelter get upper respiratory infections soon after being adopted. Of course, a few days later our little tiny baby was sneezing so much. We took him back, he got a lysine supplement, and he was better in a few days.
Now he’s a big, adult cat and I think that’s still pretty cute. I love being able to hold an adult cat because they’re a lot less fragile than a kitten.
I have nothing against dogs. I’ve had many of them in my childhood. Cats, are just a completely different animal. Cats and dogs are both intelligent, but in different ways. Chester, like many cats, is really, really clever and an excellent problem solver.
In the mornings, like today, when he’s hungry and wants me to get up, he does things that he knows annoy me when I’m trying to sleep. He will bite the cords on my lamp or alarm clock, pull Kleenex’s out of the box, or go to window and scratch it, all instant ways of getting me up. He never does these things when I’m awake. Even when he’s doing this, I think it’s annoying, yet precious. The fact that he jumps on the counter is both a thing that he knows he’s not supposed to do because he never does it when I’m looking, but I know he does. He steals my hair ties from my bathroom drawer and puts them in his food and water bowl. He’s so bad, but so cute at the same time.
He’s our little comedian and he makes even the most stressful days end on a good note.
I’m cuddling him now and am glad for that little funny yet mischievous fur baby.
Thanks for reading 🙂
