It was the expression on her face that did it. She was the only cat with that particular intelligent expression, the mixture of curiosity and seriousness – her mouth almost pursed – which made me think this is my cat. The description of her was that of an affectionate special needs cat; she was diabetic and would need insulin shots twice a day. I was not particularly disturbed by that at all. So I made an appointment to come in and meet her.
It took approximately a millisecond before I knew I would be taking her home with me. A more affectionate cat you’ve never seen. Also: chatty. She talks, chirps, meows, mews, purrs, trills, and wheedles. It is like living with a feline version of The View.
I have to give her two insulin shots a day. Today was the first day where I am 100% sure I did it correctly. She even purred through-out it.
I never realized how much of a cat person I am. She’s really wonderful. This is Cleo:
