I'm not mean. I'm just misunderstood!
My life wasn't supposed to turn out like this. When Mama saw me she fell in love with me right away of course. I mean, what's not to love? I'm beautiful, black, I'm a great catversationalist! There are a few quirks. But hey... Wouldn't you bite someone if they pet you the wrong way? Wouldn't you run for cover everytime someone knocks on the door? Wouldn't you scream and hiss and bite when YOU were getting brushed? These are normal I tell you :)
But life wasn't supposed to be like this. Here I was. This cute, adorable, beautiful little baby being taken to her new home. I had big brother Morris. I didn't need anyone else. But Morris got sick. The vet wasn't even sure how long he was sick. He could have been sick for a long time and was just showing. So a lot of my kittenhood was spent with a sick brother. I loved him so much. But he got so much attention. I really wouldn't have wanted the attention he was getting. It involved a lot of going to the vet, being given medication and having to be cleaned up a lot. But I didn't get as much attention as I might have wanted. Mama used to apologize to me a lot. She still feels really bad about it. But she was doin the best that she could.
Then Zipper came to live with us. He was our auntie's kitty. But she couldn't really keep him like she wanted, so she asked Mama and Daddy if they could take him. Of course they said yes. He fell in love with Daddy right away. I figured, fine by me. More Mama time for me :) But then he wanted to do things. Like go into the kitchen when I was in there! And sleep on the same bed that I was sleeping on! How dare he!
Then about a year ago Mama and Daddy strolled in with that silly baby Amber. And yeah... She's kinda cute. We have some chuckles from time to time. But this was supposed to be my time! All mine! Mama and Daddy all to myself.
I shouldn't have to share! Don't they realize who I am?
