So as you’ve noticed, I’ve been bad at blogging this year. I haven’t even introduced you to the newest addition to my life! And she’s been in my life for 7 months!
I’ve always been a cat person even back to the days of Beanie Babies when my sister collected the dogs and I collected the cats. We had a few cats growing up, but they always ended up behaving badly and peeing on things (and on my mom) and then getting banned from our house.
Despite these previous cat fiascos, my longing for a cat grew each year after I moved away from home for college. Finally, this year the stars aligned with my roommates and my apartment and my paychecks and I made the leap!
Scout is the best. cat. ever.
She is SO chill! She’s the perfect mix of goofy and entertaining and snuggly and loving. She’s not standoffish at all. #catwin
I came across Scout as I was searching for orange kittens (my dream cat) on Craigslist. A girl who fosters cats who had some orange kittens asked me if I was interested in a certain type of cat. When I said all I wanted was a young, snuggly cat with orange-ish coloring, she introduced me to “Peaches.” She was only 3 months old at the time, but she had lost that TINYKITTENSOADORABLEAHHHH aspect, and the girl was having a hard time placing her in a home. I decided she was purrrrrfect (ha!), even if she was more creamsicle than true ginger-orange.
— sleeping on me after I refuse to get up and feed her at 6 a.m.
— spooning with, scratching on, and tearing apart her cardboard scratching mat
— carrying around her mouse on a string
— greeting me and my roommates at the door like a dog (so cute)
— tearing up our blinds (my one complaint) so she can see outside and people watch
— basking in sunbeams
— snuggling with me and my laptop
She’s my favorite kitty baby, my Scoutypants!
