I have something I’d like to say before I make my announcement. I recently adopted a cat (not my first round with trying to have a cat I have tried owning several). I do not have the best luck with cats (RIP Lil’ Peep and Furball *pours some Bud Light on the ground “for my homies”).
I always blame their disappearances or accidental deaths outside on my husband even if he were in Canada I would find a way for it to all fall on his shoulders.
I was so excited about getting this new kitty. We decided to try a boy because we haven’t had the best luck with girl kitties and my sister in laws sister had some Siamese she was trying to give away. I’ve always wanted one. I beg and beg my husband and he finally relents and tells me I can have one
(even though he knows if something happens it will somehow all be on his shoulders once again). So, my sister-in-law picks the kitty and brings it to me. This cat…it’s just …I’ll tell you how my husband described him when I sent him a picture.
Husband: It looks like it came from years of inbreeding and what is with his face? It looks like you wiped your ass with it (one of the many reasons I love my husband. He has many colorful ways of explaining things).
Me: We love it and you will love it too.
I don’t love it, well, I should say I didn’t love it at first. He’s really annoying. He’s all legs like a new-born colt and his hair feels like the itchiest material you could ever touch. He meows constantly at a ridiculous decibel, wakes me up in the middle of the night to let him off my bed, just to wake me up a little later to put him back on the bed. Last night I was trying to go to sleep and he flew from the end of the bed, batted with his humongasaur paws (did I mention they are HUGE) at my face about 50 times with a ridiculous amount of speed, and took off 90 miles an hour. I slept in fear all night. Everyone always said Siamese cats were the devil but I just had to get one of my own. Despite all of this I am starting to really enjoy him. He’s über playful and mean and I like that in my kitties. They can defend themselves against the devils I call my children. 🙂
So, without dragging it out any further. I have went against my husbands idea of a name for the cat which was “Ugly” and decided on..are you ready for this? I can’t take the excitement anymore..
Now, introducing the newest member of the McLinden Clan: Skid Mark (Thanks Babe it all stemmed from you)
I know I know…genius. Can’t wait for the kids to go to school and tell all the kids about their skid mark. I am laughing I’m so good. Ok, well now the excitement is over and it’s time for me to go clean up the lamp and picture frame mess the cat, I mean Skid Mark just knocked down.
