I have been in my forever home for almost a month now. I have a loving brother named Milo who grooms and hugs me all the time and a playful sister named Mercy who will always be a kitten at heart. Then there's my humans, mom and dad, who feed me, talk to me, give me rubbies, and make that red light dance around the house! There are two dogs here and that puppy named Quincy is the one who seems really interested in me. We stare at each other alot. If he would just quit chasing me I wouldn't even bother to run!
When mom first put this pink polka dot thing around my neck I didn't like it so I started scratching to make them think I had fleas, but they knew better. Then mom hung this metal heart thing on it with my name on the front and address on the back and it felt like it weighed more than I did! I guess it's so they won't forget what my name is. Oh, and that's the reason why my name is spelled Sofie instead of Sophie, so that it fit better on the tag. Silly humans.
I know I have food, toys, litter box, lots of warm places to sleep, other furry animals for company, and most of all, love. Yes, I love this place and I'm here to stay.
Mom says it's late and time for me to go to bed, but not before I say a prayer...........
A CAT PRAYER
Now I lay me down to sleep,
I pray this cushy life to keep.
I pray for toys that look like mice,
And sofa cushions, soft and nice.
I pray for gourmet kitty snacks,
And someone nice to scratch my back.
For window sills all warm and bright,
For shadows to explore at night.
I pray I'll always stay real cool,
And keep the secret feline rule,
To never tell a human that,
The world is really ruled by cats.
