Woman’s Best Friend

Kennedy is just about all grown up now.

Kennedy is just about all grown up now.

Remember about a year ago when I posted, half-joking, that my future belonged to a Siamese cat? Well, for those of you who don’t personally know me, I feel as though I should update you.

Kennedy is now 9 months old. And yea, she basically owns my life. Ever watch Gilmore Girls? Well she’s sort of the Paul Anka of my life. The other night I discovered she’s actually afraid of sprinkles. You know, like those colorful candies you cover cookies with? Yea those. She can’t figure out what to do with them, and sort of paws at them for a minute, then shrinks in horror when they roll around. Entertaining, yes – but pathetic nonetheless.

Needless to say, I love having a cat. Even though I have to lint-roll the ironing board before use (she thinks it’s a delightfully padded bunk bed), torture myself finding housing that will accept a cat (harder than you think), throw out another pair of stockings every week, hold my plate at my eye-level while eating, padlock the garbage (and my roommate’s bedroom door), and replace five keys on my computer keyboard. But when it comes down to it, it’s nice to know I have a built-in friend when I saddle up and move 1,000 miles away.

And we’ve had some adventures together. Like the time I gave her a bath and she bit me so hard my whole arm swelled up. I mean, who doesn’t love getting shots and going on antibiotics? Or what about the time she went number-two on a pile of tissue paper I was preparing to stuff in a gift bag? Or the second time she bit me mid-bath? The first time she peed on me after a bath? (Maybe I should stop giving her baths).

In all honesty, I’m a total cat lady, and I love her to pieces. Life with a cat is pretty unique, which is why I almost laughed my face off (Seriously. It almost got away from me) when I saw these videos earlier today. If you like cats, or even hate cats, but know what it’s like to live with them, check these out. But hold your face on tight . . . you never know.
