It’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything, and I know I suck, but there’s a pretty darn good reason! I’ve been busy getting things organized and visiting with family & friends, yeah yeah yeah.. but the best thing ever happened last week!
So, about 11 years ago I decided that I wanted to get a kitten. I had a cat at the time, but I wanted my very own little fur-ball to play with and cuddle. My parents (yes, I still lived at home at the time & was going to University) didn’t want another pet, so they shot that idea down immediately.
11 years later, and I’m cuddling my very own fur-ball.
Her name is Leia, and she’s a blue-eyed, one-year-old Ragdoll/Birman mix, and I couldn’t be more in love. ?
My friend Kelsie messaged me a few weeks ago and told me she was looking for a home for Leia. I ran it by my landlord (since his wife is allergic and all, I figured I should at least ask), and much to my surprise they agreed to let me get her.
Seriouslyyyyy – just look at her! How could you not be in love?! Those little paws, the squinty blue eyes.. she’s just a gem.
She’s also the cuddliest cat ever. And I really mean EVER. She’s gotta be in the same room as all of the humans, always. When she gives you hugs and kisses, she means business; seriously, one paw goes on either side of your neck and she squeezes them together while head-butting your face or licking your cheeks. She also really likes to share pillows, and will often perch on my shoulder when I’m working on my blog/an article, or just relaxing and watching some Netflix. Her favorite toy is a pink ball with a feather on it that’s attached to a string; I literally have to hide it in order to get her to stop playing with it. But I still think that the best thing ever is how she’ll run down the stairs to say hello EVERY SINGLE TIME you come through the door. It doesn’t matter if you’re just going to get the mail, or heading to work, as soon as you come home she’s the first one down to greet you, and it’s the best feeling in the world.
She’s pretty much the best cat in the world (in my opinion).
And yes, she’s totally named after Princess Leia. And yes, the name 110% fits; she’s a total princess.
Moral of the story?
You’re gonna be reading a whole lot of posts about cats and seeing a ton of cat photos.
