Her name is Romy, she is a kitty...

...(Sung to the tune of Copacabana....)

Just because she means the world to me, and she's turning 10 this fall, I'm sharing my gorgeous little fluffball with you! Romy (yes, after Romy & Michelle) knows just how to cheer me up. Like a little puppy, she comes running to greet me at the door when I arrive home, she loves to follow me into the bathroom when I pee, and she has the daintiest little meow, except when she's hungry... I have a cat magnet that I found that reads "I'm not fat, I'm fluffy!" Haha, that's totally my kitty.

...and Romy trying her go at modeling. Excellent leg placement!

The story on how I obtained her is pretty neat. When I was 19 (wow, I feel so old!) my friend Herby and I went to the flea market and came across this lady with a FREE KITTENS! sign. My first time living away from home and with no cat, I HAD to get one! She gave us her address and we headed over there a few days later. This woman was *totally* the epitome of "crazy cat lady"!!!! Seriously, her whole house was covered in plastic and there was probably about 20 cats, who had all had kittens at the same time. She said they were all free, except the Siamese, which were only $20. I felt like a kid in a candy store!! I have a weakness for tuxedo cats, and when I saw little Romy, I knew she was the one! My little baby kitty!

Soooo...... SHOW ME YOUR PETS!! Post a photo, I wanna see your babies too!

Romy is a beautiful kitty! How could you resist getting her! I have plenty of puppy pictures on my blog if you would like to see my fuzzy son Barkley! :)

AH! Your cat sounds just like my hairball Banjo! He greets everyone at the door (and even jumps on them), and it obsessed with people going to the bathroom. And he drools if you pet him for a long time.


Jinx on the other hand, not so friendly. More like "Hey, you can look at me, but don't touch OMFG WHAT WAS THAT NOISE" *run*

She's so beautiful! I loooove her toe hair. :) My Mao kitty greets me at the door, too, and he runs to the bathroom when he hears me peeing. They're such weird little things! I have a blog post dedicated to my kitty children here:

Your Romy's fluffiness reminds me of my Chloe. I also have Boo that I found in the trash behind my apartment. Boo is my shadow.
