My Grandma's cat, Tommy, and Myself, circa 1987
Allow myself to introduce...myself? I am Emily.
But I digress.
I suppose most of you are wondering: What is a cat anyway? This blog may be difficult to follow without a basic understanding. Before you read on, click here. Why start a blog about cats? Well that is a damn good question; I don't even know where this obsession of the felinekind first took hold. The last time I touched a cat – actually held a cat in my arms – I was probably 2 years old. At that point asthma reared it's ugly head, and it was decided that, maybe rolling around on the floor all day with a cat might not be such a good idea anymore.
Soo. I have spent that last 20-odd years of my life being programmed to stay away. 'Do you have cats?' is probably one of my top ten most common questions of all time. I missed many a gatherings, many a parties, and many a sleepovers, because even being in a room where a cat may have been in the past 5 years might still make me wheezy. And it almost always did.
Although being allergic to cats put me through many hurdles, I have always loved kittehs from a distance. and I have a constant fascination with all things cat-related. Perhaps if they weren't a forbidden fruit so-to-speak, I may otherwise have taken kittehs for granted?
They make me happy. they make me laugh. They're so freakin' weird! I am forever a fan.
I have a few cat buddies that will be guest bloggers from time to time, and I will showcase the products, photos, websites, etc. that I have come across that have made me smile or inspired me in some way. I hope you enjoy.
Many Meows of Gratitude,
