Mom seems to think our calico housemate Creampuff is lonely. “She needs a cat friend,” she says.
I think Creampuff is ditzy. “She needs an IQ boost,” I say.
But who listens to a dog? Mom fell in love with this kitty at the Seattle Animal Shelter.
There’s her mug shot on the right..
“Meets my specifications,” Cathy says. “Already spayed and declawed. Over 5 years old. Gets along with other animals. Mellow.”
“Read the fine print,” I say. “Overweight. Needs grooming. Spent 30 days in a cage so probably has some issues.”
“Ophelia. A beautiful name,” Cathy’s neighbors said.
“Ophelia? Not for a cat. What about Furball or Fatso?” Cathy said.
For once we are in agreement. But I have a feeling there’s a Fat Furball in our future.
