I got a new cat.
Any one who is anyone on hubpages, must by now have heard of Frogdropping. Frogdropping is a cute and funnylittle frog. Frogdropping is sweet. Or so it seems. Sometimes Froggy is a bit bitter. Sometimes the cute little frog can be down right pernicious.
Frogdropping loves animals of all sorts. She actually has a dragon! (I think this should have given me a clue)
Frogdropping also rants and raves about Bengals. She has a Hub on them In this hub, Froggy is trying to get people to buy a Bengal as a pet. As a loving father, I wanted to buy a pet for one of my sons. He has a big heart. He wanted a pet of his very own. He could give it all of his love and affection, and I could teach him about responsibility by having him care for the animal. So I read on. The last paragraph stated-
"Personally, as a Bengal cat owner of some years, I have no problem recommending anyone to think about Bengals as a future pet. But – do your homework first."
This sounded reasonable. What would be a good site that has information on a wide variety of subjects? I had to think long and hard. Then it hit me. HuPages! So I cued my search and found the hub that I needed for my homework.
I got some good background information. I was ready to buy. I started looking for a reputable breeder. I found that they were much more expensive than Frogdropping had said. Okay, maybe I would not go through a reputable breeder. On top of being expensive, they required lots of paper work. This must be some fancy cat. I did not have to fill out any paperwork for my two Siamese cats. I finally found someone who would deliver, with out the excess paperwork.
The night I got my new Bengal I was so excited. Also a little surprised how big they were. I guess being a frog with a dragon, she forgot to mention the problem with size. At least my new kitty was not as big as Kevin.
The problems started the first night. First, our two Siamese disappeared. At first I thought that they were just refusing to share the litter box with a new arrival. You know how cats can be. Then I found that our new cat was not litter box trained.
Our son Arri was nervous approaching his new cat, but after much coaxing, tried to bond with him. We asked him what he would name his new cat. He proudly told us that he was going to call his new cat "Fluffy". It was kind of late so we told Arri that him and Fluffy would have to get ready for bed. Arri told us that he did not want to sleep with his new cat. This was understandable. It would take time for them to bond.
So we locked Fluffy in the mudroom with our Bull-mastiff, Boris. I know what you are thinking, poor cat locked in a room with such a big dog. Not to worry, our Bullmastiff is a gentle dog. We caught Boris licking baby bunnies in our back yard last summer. He was so sweet. The next morning, we could not find Boris anywhere. A prowler must have broken in during the night. and Boris must have given chase, as he was gone in the morning, but Fluffy was still there..
We decided that it was feeding time. We sent our son Arri in to feed Fluffy. That damned cat took a swipe at him. They are not nice cats. i am starting to think that this was some sort of a cruel joke that Frogdropping played. I mean really, who lives with a dragon?
Boris is much cuter.
