If you are Nick, or my dear friend Emily, or one of my equally cat-obsessed co-workers, you likely already knew this. But for those of you I’m not so intimately acquainted with, the truth is out– I think my cat is awesome, and I will not apologize for it. And here is the cat photography to prove it.
To be fair, she is an unusually fantastic pet. She’s a total lap cat; she is quick to purr and has never hissed once; and she is polydactyl, which makes her paws adorably over-sized. I bring this all up because it was a year ago this month that we brought her home from the cat shelter. And while I had no idea how much time I would spend sweeping up kitty litter this last year, I am glad she’s part of my life. Totally worth it.
