A few month ago I desperately wanted a cat.
Like with all my heart.
I wanted something to cuddle and to play with. I wanted something to stroke and take care of. I wanted something to NEED me.
(I mean just look at it’s smushy lil faaace )
But the task wasn’t easy. My mother and brother are both allergic to cat hair, so I had to find an anti-allergenic cat. (But not one of those hairless cats cause those are kinda creepy…) As you can probably imagine it was a hard and unforgiving task. I read sites that said anti-allergenic cats are a myth, sites that claimed almost all house cats are anti-allergenic. I found lists that said a certain type of cat was anti-allergenic and some that said they weren’t. I cross referenced everything there is to cross-reference. I typed “anti-allergenic cat” so often I honestly think it is forever engraved in my web history.
Then I finally found an anti-allergenic cat I fell in love with. (Is it just me or did I use the word “anti-allergenic” a lot in the last paragraph. I tried googling synonyms but there really aren’t any, and I considered abbreviating the word to aa but then I realized that would mean something entirely different and even though I’d prefer a non-alcoholic cat (anonymous or not) my main concern was finding an anti-allergenic one. So sorry hon but there really ain’t no elegant way of avoiding the word…)
Now where was I… Right the furry scavenger hunt! So after I found my fluffy BFF all I had to do was find a pound or breeder or whatever who sold that specific species (Russian Blue in case any one of you was wondering wink ) Or so I thought.
It turned out to be even more complicated than finding a cat!! When I finally did find someone who sold Russian Blues I called them immediately. And promptly regretted it . Because the person on the other line was (pardon my French, but I have to) a true broccoli. Now I may have overreacted but when I finally hung up I was this close [ ] to actually bursting into tears.
Ok long story short things spiraled downwards from then and I didn’t get a kitty cat
I don’t exactly know why I’m telling you guys this… But once I started writing I couldn’t stop and after I googled some pictures I was a lost cause….
So after this rousing and informative post I shall leave you. But do not fear, my dear, for I shall be back! And until then my noble servants shall keep you company.
