The cat above looks exactly like my cat. My cat’s name is Leeanne. She is all black, but don’t think she’s unlucky. She’s not! She’s cute, sweet, funny, loud, and hungry. Sometimes, she wakes me up in the morning around six or seven by walking on me, or laying literally on my head and purring in my ear. Then she expects to be petted and loved.
Soon, she’ll realize that she’s hungry. So she’ll stand in the middle of the hallway meowing really loudly, waking everyone up, until someone feeds her. Annoying, but adorable. If people are eating at the breakfast table, whether or not she’s done with her meal, she’ll come onto the back of whoever is eating’s chair and put her arms on their armrest, wanting food. One time, she ate a whole Chick-Fil-A french fry! Also, sometimes she doesn’t eat her food right away. She likes to drag it all around the floor and hunt it first. She especially likes to hunt q-tips because the cotton gets caught on her claws and it flings across the room.
Leeanne also likes to be in the sun. Sometimes we take her outside and let her play in the bushes and sniff stuff, but we’re really careful and have a loaded squirt gun or hose handy so in case she runs off we can squirt in front of her and keep her close. But she’s very cautious, so I don’t think she would run away unless a rabbit or big squirrel scared her. If we don’t take her outside, she will find a spot of the floor where sun is coming through a window and nap there. In the sun, her fur gets really warm and looks dark brown instead of black.
Oh, and she LOVES to play. We have some toys for her, like feathers on a stick and a red laser dot. She also loves, as i said, q-tips, and Zoo-Zoo pets. Zoo-Zoo pets are little toys about the size of hamsters that, if you press a button, wheel around and spin and stuff. She loves them! We mostly play with her in the living room. So whenever one of us walks by the living room, she will dash in and start meowing and purring on the rug.
One bad thing about her is, she sometimes gets confused when someone is petting her. She might think that they are playing with her, and scratch their hand. Luckily, it doesn’t hurt too bad, just a scratch, but still, it’s really annoying.
Another bad thing about her is that she is kind of shy around new people. If I have many friends over, she gets scared and runs under the couch. But if I have one or two calm friends over, she rubs up against their legs and purrs.
Now I’ll tell you how we adopted her. My brother and I have wanted a cat for a long time. So my dad made us really hard deals to get a cat. If I hit ten softballs in my last few softball games in the outfield, we got a cat. But that was really hard, since softballs are heavy, and I don’t think I got ten at-bats, or chances, after we made the deal. My 11-year-old brother’s deal was that he had to get six strike-outs in one baseball game, which he did easily, and to hit a home run in baseball, WHICH HE DID! We were so excited! We went to the SPCA Animal Shelter and picked her out.
That’s the story of my purrfect cat!
