Is Bliss Starting to Look for a New Home on her Own?
Came home today to a case of Cat Theft Auto! Bliss had procured the upstairs neighbor kid's BarbieMobile and looked like she was ready to roll!
I spend hours each day preparing myself mentally for what I need to accomplish over the next six weeks before I move to Thailand, but one big issue I keep pushing to the edges of my consciousness is what to do with my kitty cat, Bliss. I really need to find her a good home soon.
Maybe she is picking up on this psychic energy because she found herself an off-road vehicle to venture out on her own! Who put those ridiculous flower stickers right there on the driver's side of the winshield?! Bliss had to stick her head out of the cab just to see. DOGS stick their heads out of windows. Ridiculous.
She's fluffy. She doesn't shed. Seriously, I've never met a cat that didn't shed until Bliss, particularly unusual for a long-haired kitty like her. She's never destroyed a piece of furniture in her life. Independent, but loving. Never peed anywhere but outside or her catbox. She is the ideal kitty cat!
Okay, so she doesn't wear a seat belt when driving. Cats got 9 lives; they don't need seat belts.
I couldn't find the heart to break it to her while she sat there, ready to roll on her Tour d'Bliss. The only reason the Barbie Mobile was sitting out there in the back yard, unattended and unlocked was because it had already been jacked for parts.
There is a certain amount of "cuteness" built into any kitty cat. That said, Bliss is more dignified than cute. I think she would get along well with the most famous cat on the internet right now, Grumpy Cat. She could take him for a ride in her new ride. Roads? No.
