Oh, the cats I have known

Add craigslist to the vast number of things that I am slow to pick up on.  Yeah, I stop in for a visit every once in a while or, more importantly, if I need something, but I just don’t have the patience to troll through the millions of listings to seek out the gems hidden inside.  That’s why I’m glad I have friends that can and do and, most importantly, share their discoveries.  Like this one.

To my Ex-GF’s Cat

Date: 2007-05-17, 11:26PM PDT

I don’t miss her, but I miss you. You are the only cat I ever
liked…and I think you liked me as I’m the only person you let pick up
and walk around with. Sure, you were crabby, sounded like a rusty can
when you were meowing, would ignore the laser pointer and got pissed at
me when I needed to work and not pet you. Oh sure, you’d complain and
make me feel bad for feeding you the same thing and at the same time as
her other 2 cats, but did you notice I’d always slip you a piece of
meat from my dinner plate? I know you were old and stairs were not as
easy as they used to be, so I was always secretly glad and flattered to
hear your voice by the bedroom door when I’d stay over. I know her kids
liked the other animals in the house more then you, and I’m sorry, but
I liked you better than her kids anyway. And yes, I know you watched me
walk away that last time I left; I knew I wouldn’t be coming back so I
hope you found that catnip mouse I left in your secret hiding
spot…you deserved 1 last rush in your old age.

I’m not sure if you are even still alive as I haven’t been by the
house since March of 05, but I hope that you are happy, warm and still
catching the beam of sunlight in your favorite spot.

Anyway, just wanted you to know that you were the only cool cat I’ve ever known and that I miss you.

"…I’m sorry, but I liked you better than her kids anyway."  Love. it.

    This was awesome! He so deserves that cat…maybe she will see this and give it to him, if it is still alive. It sounds like they had a specal male bonding thing going on.

    And there are many cats I like more than most kids.

    That is too funny!!! I so wish the cat could read that, lol.

    Hahaha. Sometimes I think cats would permanently be better than children! At least you can leave cats alone for a few hours. 🙂

    That was so sweet. I know Adam secretly wanted to keep Dante as his…maybe he should just write him a letter like that and I’ll read it to my little precious.

    I was laughing, but there was a lump in my throat at the same time.
