The Minx

It's official: I'm turning into a crazy old lady, either talking about my kid or my cat. If I start smelling like mothballs mixed with Aquanet, and handing out hard candy with pocket lint stuck to it, promise me you'll say something. Discretely, of course.

Anyway, blood-work's in: She's Leukemia Free. Yay! Bring on the vaccinations and kitty hysterectomies, she's all mine!

She likes to wrap herself around my neck like a boa, and walk around with dixie cups in her mouth. She's dug up one plant, has just discovered the aquarium, and would prefer, if I let her, to sleep on my head.




I've also been sneezing violently since I picked her up. I've never had any allergies, and hope it's a fluke.

Eh, a little Alovert's a small price to pay.

  1. Me thinks those eyes can see through concrete! I'm glad she's in good health and I'm sure you sneezed because while she was at the vet's office she was put into a cage that held another kitty who rolled around in something you're allergic to, and just as soon as she rubs whatever it was onto your bed, furniture, and rugs you'll be just fine. Me thinks!

  7. oh, i love minx, she sounds so great! i miss having kitties around. alas, my allergies are too severe to have any more. :( definitely hope you're sneezing is a fluke.

    and i believe it's if you have 6 or 8 cats, AND smell of mothballs, that we'll have to have an intervention. :)

  10. After all the drama with the stillborns I've been anxious for a Minx update! Glad to hear she's doing well.

  11. What a gorgeous cat! And a lucky one too ... to be finding a home with you. Glad to hear she's Leukemia Free.

    I love black cats. My cat Lulu is black as well. In fact, she's a supporting character in my new post as well. :)

  12. Ah, what a sweet-looking cat! Beautiful. I have one who likes to sleep on my head, as well. Preferably with her tail covering my nose and mouth.
