Little Cat's Fake Girlfriend
I was in the Gift Shop at Big Academic Medical Center searching for a little something for Dear Son as I usually do. I saw this Little Cat all curled up in the corner and bought her. She looked remarkably similar to our "little cat", an eight pound Munchkin cat named Wiggles or Wiggs as we sometimes call him for short. Wiggles is our Munchkin cat with the short legs that was due to a genetic mutation similar to the dwarfism gene in humans; as you may recall, I wrote about a post about our cat some time ago. I bought this little cat for Dear Son and set her on his hospital bed. Dear Son had lots of laughs as I talked about how much this cat looked like our little Wiggs.
Upon arriving home from the hospital, we set our Little Cat on the sofa. Wiggles eyes bugged out from across the room and he jumped up on the sofa to check out Little Cat. He determined quickly that while she looked like a real kitten and even felt like a real kitten, she was a fake. He quickly dismissed her. Until today.
I left Little Cat on the sofa and today he decided he just might like a Missus. He came over and lovingly licked her rabbit fur. He curled up beside her and quickly moved away when he saw me looking at them together. Then he decided he didn't care and layed down beside her.
So, now what? Is this the equivalent of a blow up doll for my cat? Or does he just want a "trophy wife"? I dunno. Maybe I just opened up a can of worms.
