About our cats

When we were stuck in the tiny little apartment we first lived in together Fabulous Babe began a subtle campaign to convince me that we needed a cat. It went something like this: "I want a cat!"

I, being allergic, was not really keen on this idea. None the less men do strange things too make the women they love happy. I found myself paging through picture after picture of orphans and waifs that needed a home. Sure enough I soon found a kitten that was described as "playful" and "into everything" named Aida. Figuring this would meet the need I went ahead and called the number listed.

The woman who was fostering the litter said that the kitten was litter trained and now eating solid food and was available for instant adoption. However it was explained to me that Aida and her sister were the last two kittens in the litter and they didn?t want to separate them. If I wanted Aida I was going to have to take Tosca.

Having "SUCKER" tattooed on my forehead I went from no cats to two cats in one phone call.

They were born the weekend we were married which is ironic. They've also grown into a couple of characters. Aida is trouble at every turn and "talks" constantly. Tosca is the more affectionate of the two and is so laid back you would think she?s in a coma.

They're in for a big change in June. I'm not sure how to prepare them. I've read that you bring a blanket home from the hospital before you bring the baby home so they get to know the scent. We'll see.

I do know that every time they wake me in the middle of the night I just think to myself "Keep it up. My revenge is but months away."
