You know, I’m really not like other vegan cooking bloggers. Why? Some of the reasons are more obvious than others. One is that I do not call myself “vegan.” Also, I don’t generally invent my own recipes. But, possibly most strikingly, I’m not really what you would call an “animal person.” Going right along with that territory, unlike so many vegan cooking blogs, I don’t tend to post pictures of my cat, Rory.
Now, don’t get me wrong. I love my cat. She’s the sweetest cat in the whole entire world. But she’s also SUPER annoying. She’s ALWAYS at my feet. I can’t sit without her climbing on my lap. She loves me too much. Her unconditional love embarrasses me. Unconditional cat is unconditional.
But, you know what? I give in. I need to get it through to everyone JUST HOW MUCH THIS CAT LOVES ME. So here is a short video that proves it (ummm, think you could just, like, fail to notice how messy my apartment is?).
And, lest you think that this was a rare occurrence, think again. This type of lick-fest will go on as often as I allow it, so far as Rory is concerned. She’s irrepressible. Irrepressible cat is irrepressible.
Most notable about my kitty’s licking, I think, is the love biting. It doesn’t hurt, it’s actually really gentle, sweet, and loving. It’s kind of like a teething child biting your fingers. But, you know what, Rory? You’re too much. Whatever happened to the kind of cat who hides under the bed? Who wouldn’t dream of coming when called? Who doesn’t have to sleep directly on top of me every night? Who will let me cook, test my blood sugar, or eat a bowl of soup in peace? Who isn’t always ALL UP in my shizzle? Why couldn’t I just be one of those people with a normal cat like that?
But, ok, I’ll admit it, she’s sooooooo cute!
