Sometimes people do things that are inexplicably awesome. Last week, I received an email from my dear friend, Lana.
Subject: Too Cute
The e-mail featured a lovely picture of a fuzzy little feline. I was instantly smitten. It’s not entirely weird for people to send me cute pictures of cats. I love cats and this one is so cute, she really does deserve a great home. I did question Lana’s motives, however. We trump her one cat by two. Like most Canadians, Lana is very sneaky.
Last night, I received another email. This one was from Ms. Parasol who is also up in Ottawa.
Subject: I thought Mihow was a cute name for a cat… and this stray cat was deserving of a cute name.
She sent me a picture and a description of the same shelter cat! The part that I didn’t notice in Lana’s previous email was the actual NAME of the cat. Ms. Parasol (who works for an animal shelter) actually named this little cutie. I’m also left questioning her motives. And I’m trying to talk Tobyjoe into four. How does one import a Canadian cat? Do they need green cards? We were going to make a go at a baby, but a family of cats is cool, too.
Next to spending yesterday with my mother in New Jersey, this may have been the highlight of my weekend. (Thank you, Ms. Parasol.)
