So Many Cats

27 Aug

Continuing my story where I left off leads me to the adoption center. I was ready to be shot down for not being 18 years old yet but when I got there, they said they needed cat socializers and that I was welcome to come in over the weekends. I had been looking forward to it for so long and taking care of those cats DID NOT disappoint. I didn’t even notice how fast the time was passing, but more on that in a bit.

The cats all had unique personalities, it was like a sitcom!

(BEWARE: If you don’t like listening to people talking about cats, this post is not for you! Scroll to the end where I have food pictures and life updates and such.)

First, we had Tessa. She acted like she hated the world but you could totally tell she was a sweetheart and whenever I rubbed her neck, she would purr so much, the whole bench shook! (Don’t tell the others, but she’s my favorite)

Next up was Lily. She was totally adorable. I would pet her with one hand and then she would flip over on her back and start chewing on my fingers. It was the cutest thing!

And Emme! Gosh, she was cute and SO FLUFFY. Emme was lucky enough to be adopted by a nice older lady today. Hope she likes her new home!

Tandy! She looked like an angel, I swear. I just wanted to pick her up and snuggle with her but she didn’t like me very much.

WALLY. Oh my goodness, was this cat every fat! I kept thinking of a dark haired Garfield. I would wave toys in front of him, trying to get him to play with me but he was SO lazy. And I totally made a rookie mistake and gave him a treat when he gave me the puppy dog eyes (or would it be kitty cat eyes)? He’s supposed to be watching his weight, you see.

Zoya was so creepy when she would just stare at me. But she was a doll, once you got past her shyness. And it was sort of funny to see whenever she got frightened and jumped!

Seriously though, she was the shyest thing ever. I’m just trying to take your picture, Zoya!

Tiger was like a teddy-bear in cat form. Adorable and snuggly and cuddly and all those types of words.

Apparently, there was a trick to telling these two (Laya and Louis) apart but I never could! Not to mention the fact that they were constantly flying across the room! These two were definitely the trouble-makers of the group; they were always trying to start a fight or rip into a bag of treats.

Okay, so this one doesn’t seem to the white spot between his eyes which means it’s Laya… or wait… maybe I remember that wrong and this is Louis? I DON’T KNOW!

Don’t be tricked by his adorable face, Cole hated me! I have bite marks all over my leg and pretty dress. Well, a lot of the bite marks were from him but if I’m honest, they all bit and scratched! Better get used to me cats, I’ll be here pretty darn often.

The time with the cats, like I mentioned, whizzed past.  It was 4 o clock before I got home and I hadn’t eaten lunch yet. Can you say STARVING?

Luckily, my parents are awesome and brought me tofu sushi! Gosh, I love this stuff. Three of the rolls have a little soy sauce on them and the fourth has Annie’s Barbeque Sauce. At first, I didn’t like the sauce but it’s definitely grown on me and YUM.

After an hour biking and 6 hours without eating, that sushi wasn’t enough! I stole some of the eggplant leftovers and holy crap! They got BETTER the next day. The tomato ended up being pretty grainy so I didn’t finish it. Shame, I usually love tomatoes!

Now I’m sitting at home, trying not to over heat and planning a green monster with figs for dinner.

Have you done any volunteer work?

I think it’s super rewarding and INSANELY fun. But I’m obsessed with all things cat.
