List #139: Meet Radley

I've wanted a cat for a long time. We had pets growing up: 2 rabbits, assorted fish, 1 awesome dog. And I had another rabbit, a fish, and a frog as pets for my classroom back in the day when I was a teacher. But I never got to have a cat. My Dad and brother are allergic. My parents weren't big fans of cats. 

And even though one of my college roommates and I would have a loved a little kitty to prance back and forth between our bedrooms, we and our other roommates agreed to no pets when we signed the lease.

So for years I always had dreams of a little kitty, but I would fight them off for fear of becoming a crazy cat lady. And I guess in a way I already am, because here I am writing a blog post introducing to the newest big thing in my life. But I'm hoping that having a little cuddly one at home makes me happier in the long and that whomever I may date in the near, and not-so-near future, loves cates too. Or at least tolerates them enough for me.

So without further ado, I'd like for you to meet Radley. She's a cute little thing that I got from a friend of the library. 

Radley. As in Boo. As in To Kill a Mockingbird.

Right now Radley spends a lot of time doing the following:
  • Sitting under my bed.
  • Looking at me.
  • Meowing.
  • Jumping on radiators.
  • Cautiously eating. Tonight I found out that she really likes the turkey wet food. 
  • Playing with her feather toy.
  • But being a little frightened of her mouse toy that rolls around.
  • Enjoying tummy rubs.
  • Purring in my lap.
  • Finding a ring on my finger fascinating. 
  • Waking me up around 5:00 am and demanding that she gets some love and attention.
  • Being adorable.
So dear readers, am I officially on my way to being crazy cat lady? Or have I just added even more cuteness to my life? Because I already think I'm pretty cute.
