Ya’ll, I’m a dog lover. I know, I know. You might have just read the title of my post over again, wondering if you misread the title initially. But no… I’m talking about my love for dogs in a post about cats. Is that too much irony for one post? Maybe.
But what can I say? All I’ve ever experienced before was dogs. And dogs are just so… doggy? Cuddly? Fluffy? Kissy? All I know is that my newfound love for cats will never be quite as strong as my love for dogs. Especially my Bix-man. However, that being said, I’m falling in love with cats.
My friend Catelyn’s family is in posession of a very fertile female cat who’s had two batches of kittens in just a few months. After Teddy (our first cat) had a little incident with the cow that– unfortunately–turned out to be fatal, we were in luck when we found out that Teddy’s mom was pregnant again. And thus, Reep and Lassie’s story began.
So our family adopted two adorable girl kitties after much debate over what kittens were the cutest, what gender we prefered, how many we were adopting, and so on. But we eventually settled for these two rascals after falling in love with Lassie’s sweet half-orange face. And, of course, Reep came with the deal, too, because she was the only other girl in the litter.
They’re barn cats, but don’t worry, they’re still rather spoiled. They’re friendly and love attention. They’ll never say no to a bowl of fresh squeezed, full-fat milk every morning (I know–we have such cliche barn cats).
We call them Reep and Lassie. But their full names are Reepicheep (from the Chronicles of Narnia, of course) and Laissez-faire (a capitalist economic principle; when the economy takes care of itself, not unlike a barn cat).
Welcome to the farm, Reep and Lassie!
EXCITING NEWS I COULDN’T WAIT TO TELL YOU…
Also, I have a youtube channel! And there’s already a “pilot episode” for your viewing pleasure. And if you’d subscribe I’d be happier than a cat drinking warm milk!
(I’ll be posting a more formal announcement in the next few days. But I couldn’t wait any longer to tell someone.)
Are you more a cat person or a dog person? Or maybe you have trouble deciding (like someone I might know)?
