A Conversation with my Cat
I am known by some of my friends, family & my former employers at the vet as the crazy cat girl because yes, I do have 13 cats; which in all honesty is an unlucky number and I should change it to 14 but I do not want to really freak people out.
Anyways, since I live by myself I often have conversations with my animals, which sometimes confuses individuals when I am doing that and talking to them on the phone.
I would like to introduce you to Linus. Linus is hands down, my favorite cat. Linus came home with me from the APL when he was about 7 weeks old. Linus turned 14 yrs old this year. He has known all of my animals, all of my heartaches, my tears, my happiness, and anything else. He is my true cat buddy. Linus is AKA "Linney the Whiney" because he whines a lot when he talks to me. Here is a typical conversation we had just yesterday.
"Hi Linus, is there anything I can do for you?" I inquire.
"I want you to pick me up," Linus says.
"That's okay, I'll just climb up your shirt," Linus says as he proceeds to climb up my shirt.
"Excuse me Linus but your nails are digging into my skin. Can you wait a minute until I put the camera down?" I plead.
