I love this meme- Face of the Week at Spacial Peepol. Today she has a gorgeous kitty on hers, so I am going to post a gorgeous kitty on mine! How's that for theme? Maybe we could play stray cat strut on my Ipod and eat fish for dinner. Pass the malt vinegar please.
This is Spike. I just now realized that she has the same name as the sock creature I posted last week. The Ex named her though. When we got her, he was amazed at how much she looked like the kitten he had as a child (the kitten he hid in his closet hoping his mom wouldn't notice- the kitten who ended up being so big and brawny that he would beat up dogs).
Spike was my baby. I love her still. She sadly left when I moved out of the house. We had an exodus of quite a few animals who ran away when I, their primary caretaker, left. I would have taken her with me, but I really didn't have a place to stay, and when I ended up here, I knew the dog would eat her. (sad face, sniffle)
She is (I am changing verb tense people, because she' not dead- she just adopted someone else!) the master catcher of lizards. At least once a week one of the kids would scream because a lizard was in a bedroom. Usually tailless and cowering in a corner. Spikey is a giver, what can I say?
When she wasn't catching lizards, she was sleeping behind the ex on top of his recliner, or on my lap. She also enjoyed sleeping directly on top of my head at night.
Sure, I know she looks a little angry, but she wasn't with me! She's my sassy feisty girl.
Here's her barely tolerating her little sister. She liked her twin brother Ori for a while, but she's not really a cat's cat.
