My husband and I adopted a cat in February. Her name is Marrah. He has never had a cat and I've never had an inside pet. It's been...eh, more downs than ups. But I love her so much. It's really crazy how attached I am. I used to scoff at co-workers that showed me pictures of their pets (inwardly scoff, of course ;)). But I am totally one of those people now. Sorry, co-workers.
We don't know her history before she came to the shelter. She is 3 yrs old and was at the shelter about two months before we adopted her. She is crazy cute (light tan color) so I'm not sure how no one got her before we did. Anyway, she has attachment/trust issues. I don't know what happened to her before (and I don't like to think about it). But she does not like to be held or picked up. She immediately hides if we enter the room. She is getting better about it because we just keep showering her with affection. But sometimes it is frustrating. I had visions of a constant snuggling companion. That was the main reason I wanted a cat. Still, I love every little moment she gives me (sleeping next to me at night, eating a treat out of my hand).
She has been sick the past month. And let me tell you - it's not fun. And it's stinky. I have cleaned up more than my share of ick. And I feed her twice a day! And clean her litter every day. You'd think she would show more appreciation. ;)
All she does - ALL DAY- is sleep or sit on my laptop. Or combine the two and sleep on my laptop.
She used to watch tv during the day. I would come home at lunch, turn it off and it would be back on after work. But apparently she can't turn the tv on by herself with our new setup.
So that's my little Mar-bar. (That's her nickname). If you want to see more of Marrah, follow me on Instagram.
Tell me about your pets! I am so into hearing about pets now. ;)
