Cats Are Awesome
My friend Carolyn told me this story and I had to share it:
Okay the friend of a girl I work with has this cat that steals from people when they visit. It goes through handbags and takes a one thing and runs off to a secret place to hide it.
I thought that was great just in and of itself. But then she followed it up with this:
This friend had chemotherapy (she’s fine now) and was in bed feeling rotten. She took a nap and when she woke up, all this STUFF was on her bed. Then the cat came in with a thing. Turns out, the kitty was giving her all the stuff it had collected as presents.
That is, like, my new favorite story ever.
And they say cats don't care about people! HOGWASH!
That's the cutest cat story ever!!
My cat (Ive had him since I was 6) "hunts" markers, pencils, pens… and then presents them to me and meows until I take them from his mouth. I usually get those fat highlighters, but on rare occasions I get things like bags of LEGOs and scrunchies.
Since Ive moved out (and left him at my parents house but I get him when Scott and I move!!) hes only done it once, bringing a marker to my brother.
