Mama and I would like for you to all know that we do still love our Clementine, my calico cat sister. Even though she doesn’t get as much face time as me – since this is my blog, after all. So Mama has been feeling guilty that she doesn’t take as many photos of Clementine as she does me. Tonight, we fixed this problem. Mom snapped lots of lovely shots of my sister doing what she does best – lounging around.
Isn’t she so pretty?
We especially love her cat-stache, just next to her nose. A baby freckle!
I don’t remember if I told you the story of Clementine’s Gotcha Day, but we adopted her two years ago, in December of 2012. My Auntie found her on the streets, so underweight that we thought she was a kitten at first. But when we took her to the vet, he said that she was over a year old (possibly, because it’s hard to tell with cats) and that she was a full grown adult.
Auntie thought she would adopt her, and Mama was so against the idea of having another cat – since she had me, and that was enough, but then when Auntie decided that she couldn’t keep her and would take her to the pound, Mom said NO. Because the likelihood of an adult cat getting adopted at the pound is slim to none. Mom couldn’t bear the thought of this sweet kitty – who is very cuddly and requires so much attention – getting euthanized. So we decided to make her part of our family.
We love our Clementine and couldn’t live without her.
Clementine is the sweetest kitty sister a girl could have. We love wrestling with each other (I think she’s a dog in a cat’s body), and we do occasionally enjoy snuggling. We are both attention hogs, so we sometimes fight. I always win though, and Clementine just runs away.
Clemmie is always trying to hog Mama’s lap. She is a huge snuggler and loves purring and purring. She needs attention all the time. She is one of the neediest cats Mom has ever had. She’s like a dog but in a cat’s body. She is also funny in that she loves to wait for us by the front door when I go out for my walks. She’s wonderful.
As much as I love Clemmie, I still like my attention. But I am too tired tonight. Good night! Until next time. Love, Gracie xoxo
