There are always people in your life that touch you, and you never forget the impression they leave on you. I totally believe that about animals as well. No, I am not a crazy animal person...OK kinda, but I don't own any animals...In fact, when I moved to the City, I left a fish at my parents house, hoping it would die. It was almost two years old!!! A goldfish!!! That's soo bad, right? Seriously! It finally died. Earlier this month. My mom's going to get a new one. Good luck with that Mom!
So anyway, I don't have animals of my own, I just love and adore them. When I lived in West Hollywood, with one of the BEST ROOMMATES EVER, two cats also inhabited the apartment. Maggie and Goober. The cutest cats ever! I was unemployed for a month in 2007, and those two kept me company every day that I sat on that damn couch doing nothing but stare at job posts. Goober is like a dog, and Maggie is such a little baby. They are the greatest to play with, the greatest to cuddle with, and just great PERIOD!
Maggie's kinda ditzy, you may think she's slightly "off"...runs into things, freaks out when someone sneezes, doesn't really meow - she squeaks.
Right now, Maggie is suffering from FIP. (Feline Infectious Peritonitis) Hard to explain, all I know is that it is terminal, and just soo not fun. I visited my old apartment and got to spend some time with her - it was soo sad! I totally cried. She is such a great pal, and my old roommate's first 'baby'. It's sad sad to know that she will be leaving us sooner than we thought, and I am so happy to have had her in my life. I was so glad to be able to say good-bye to her, and I hope that one day I can get a cat that is just as great as she is!
