Today I am participating in Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop with the prompt – “If you could change anything about your pet, what would it be?”
We have more than one pet, but only one of them is truly mine, Queenie.
A queen for the Queen of the House!
We rescued Queenie from the Humane Society on Palm Sunday, 2010.
We rescued her in memory of our cat Alley who passed away in early March.
There were a number of cats at the shelter that day, lots of cute little kissup playful kittens and Queenie.
Queenie is 3 years old, she came from a loving home (or so the paperwork said).
Queenie looked at us with disdain, she allowed me (and me alone) to pick her up.
I was sold! Queenie was mine! Mama got to pick the pet this time!
From the day we brought her home until we moved to TN, there were only 4 Queenie sightings in our home.
Queenie lived in the basement (we couldn’t get her to come out); we called her the Invisible Cat and the only way we knew she was there was that she was eating the food and using the litter box. We nearly had to sell our house complete with a cat (anyone want to buy a house, I can give you a GREAT deal!).
I ended up borrowing a live animal trap to catch her. I caught her the day before the movers came.
Before moving, I would say that the one thing I would change about my cat would be that she would become visible. However, since moving to TN, Queenie has become very social. Queenie is a hoot!
She puts up with Big and Baby talking to her in baby talk, “Who’s a good widdle kitty? Hmmmm? Are you a good widdle kitty? What’s a matter Queenie, cat got your tongue?”
She looks at me with disdain.
She is overweight mine!
The one thing I would change would be that she do less of this…
And learn how to use one of these.
I don’t think I’m asking too much?
I mean seriously, if I can teach Baby how to use a broom, why can’t I teach the cat to use a mop?
Oh, yeah, that’s right… she’s the Queen and we are just her minions.
