Who would have thought that I — a person who pretty much loathed cats until 5 years ago — would be writing a gushing post about cats!
But people change. And the last few days with Pebbles have been so much fun! Here are just a few reasons why…
…she runs around like a manic kitty shooting from one room to the next exploring.
…and then sleeps a couple of hours later after tiring herself out.
…she attacks any moving piece of string as if it were prey.
…she loves sleeping in bed with me.
…she loves sleeping on or next to me.
…she had some separation anxiety for a few days. She’d meow if no one was in the room with her. And she’d make sure she slept close to someone so if we got up she’d wake up immediately and follow us.
…she comes up to me for a kiss in the morning and when I’m back from work. I kid you not.
…she learnt how to jump on the couch and the bed in a matter of two days.
…she loves playing with fingers and feet…and if you’re not careful, can start attacking them.
…she hides and when you say “Where’s Pebbles?” she jumps out.
…she loves anything that’s hanging and moving. And unfortunately, that involves a lot of electrical cords around the house.
…she doesn’t like me paying attention to books or the computer if she’s awake and she’ll sit on the keyboard or the book.
…she is oh-so-cute when asleep. The manner in which she tosses and turns and stretches. Makes you want to watch her the whole time.
I’m so glad I got her. I must admit I have had a lot of anxiety and guilt leaving her at home and going to work. Guess this is what it feels like when parents go back to work. I’ll leave you all with a photo of Pebbles. [again!]
By the way, I promise that all my posts henceforth are not going to be just gushy posts about Pebbles.
Until next time,
