#35: Get A Cat

February 7, 2010

Oh hai! I can has IKEA shopping?Oh hai!  Well after three trips to the Humane Society — and several “OMG, why am I getting a cat, how will I travel, what if it’s stupid, what if it’s too much commitment, what if I don’t like it, maybe I should get a dog, what if it never dies” panics — I finally got a kitteh.

It’s a girl cat, but I think she looks like a boy, so I may just refer to her as a he? Is that bad? Anyway, now she he needs a name! She he has a mustache, which is quite hilarious so I was thinking of naming her after a dictator — Stalin, Lenin, Franco? Twitter pals suggested Selleck, Burt Reynolds, and Mario. I was also thinking of places that I’ve traveled… like Sofia (Bulgaria), Essaouira (Morocco, and then I could call her Essa), or Zooey (Salinger book, Franny & Zooey)… So dear Internets, help me name my kitteh!

    Your first-paragraph neuroses totally made me laugh out loud! I still don’t have a kitteh for those reasons (and more–what if it’s super-expensive? what if it makes my apartment smell? what if I fall in love and then it dies?). It’s good to see a fellow committment-phobe trying it out–and what a good-looking cat!
