My Cat Named 'Cat'

Updated on December 17, 2012

Meet Cat!

This is a fun and entertaining story about the newest addition to my family.

She's beautiful, fun to be around and the friendliest, most affectionate little girl I know.

Everybody, please welcome . . . . . . . . . .

The one . . . The only . . .

CAT!

About ME

My name is Chrissy and I will be your host and storyteller for this lens.

I am 25 years old and I live in Campbellford, Ontario - Canada with my husband and our beautiful daughter. Unfortunately we could not care for Cat anymore since our new baby came but she is in a great new home with my mother in law and this is her story.

Where we got 'Cat'

It was nearing Valentine's Day and my husband wanted to surprise me with something special that he knew I would love, so, together, we got online and we found a "free kitten". She was 10 months old and her first owner had abandoned her. The couple who put the ad up couldn't keep her because they had allergies so we were more than happy to take her when the couple came and dropped her off at our house.

How we came up with 'Cat'

Well...to start, the couple who gave us 'Cat' didn't know whether or not she had already had a name so they said, "Oh, i'm sure she'll respond to anything you say", I didn't quite know how to take that so then for about two months my husband and I tried to come up with a name that both suited her personality, and of which we could both agree on, not even realizing everytime we would address her, we were already (accidentally) calling her 'Cat' and she was responding.

A few of Cat's favorite things

When we first got 'Cat', she was very calm, timid and skinny, but still very friendly and affectionate.

Then came the first night........

I woke up at 5 A.M from hearing a BANG! I looked over and across the way was 'Cat' on top of my bird's cage, trying to get in. I got up and told her to get down off it and she did.

No hope left........this has now become a regular thing for 'Cat' and you'd think it may be cruel to the birds when you first hear it, but when she's not around the birds get angry! Pretty messed up, huh?

Other strange things that 'Cat' loves to do is chase air.....

Yes, that's right. She has all the toys any cat could ask for but instead, she hysterically runs around the house with an imaginary friend and takes imaginary baths.

'Cat' loves to cuddle

      Cats are great. We too took in a cat that a neighbor had abandoned. She has been here a little over a year, and even the dogs love her.

      Great lens!

      Cats always seem to like the toys that cost nothing at all, like air or a scrap of paper. God bless 'em.
