When You Say Cat, I Say....

Last week, I asked my lovely Facebook and Twitter peeps to help me out by sending me a word, any word at all.  The reason? Well, I wanted to try something new and find new inspiration for the blog and my writing.  Thank you all so much to everyone who helped out. 

So, today's post is brought to you by the word cat. 
(Thanks, Megan, for the suggestion!) 


I'm definitely more of a cat person than a dog person.  I think cats suit my personality -- grumpy and solitary, haha.  Dogs are so rambunctious sometimes and just make me crazy.  BUT alas, my son is allergic to cats and my hubby is a diehard dog person.  So, I guess I'm outnumbered. 

I had a cat when I was very little, probably 4 or 5.  His name was Randy and he was a cute little orange and white tabby cat.  I would dress that poor cat up all the time and drag him out of whatever hiding place he was in and make him play with me. haha. He was a good sport, though, definitely not a grumpy cat.  He'd sit on my lap for hours and just purr his little heart out.  I loved cats so much that I even nicknamed my step-dad Kitty Cat because when I first met him, he had several cats at his place and I thought I was in cat heaven playing with all of them.  

Of course, this story doesn't have a happy ending.  I had to give Randy away because we were moving out of our townhouse and into a bigger home and my mom wouldn't let me bring him. Don't ask me why, it didn't make sense to me when I was 5 and doesn't make sense to me now.  But my mom is a whole other story for another day.  

Anyway, here's a poem I wrote for Randy:

How happy you made me, oh Randy //
Well you came and you gave without taking //
And I sent you away, oh Randy

What? #barrymanilowcansuckit

I'd love it if you suggested a word for me! I might use it in a post. Keep it clean, people. :) Ciao!

  1. I am more of a cat person for the same reasons! LOL

  2. Oh my gosh this makes me happy... I'm not a cat person, so to speak but I feel you'd really enjoy this video on YouTube of a girl who makes an online dating video profile and has a mental breakdown over her love for cats... If anything, it's amusing :) please tell me you've seen it?!

  3. I love my kitty!! He is so fun. :)

  4. I just want to say how awesome it is that you dropped a Barry manilow reference.

  5. I am not a cat person. My uncle's cat used to attack and bite my legs the second I would turn around....! HAHA Barry Manilow! LOL
