my daughter named her midnight. she's a bit standoffish but i love her dearly. she tears my house up something awful. im never surprised to wake up and find a tube of toothpaste in the bed with me or to find her inside my bathroom cabinet tearing up all of the Qtips. but thats ok, she is endearing. you can throw something for her and she will chase it, find it and return it. during the day, she plays constantly. she hides around corners or in the laundry and waits for me. her eyes get huge in anticipation and my daughter calls them her "goggle" eyes ". but she doesnt just wait and run, no she waits, jumps up and actually hits you HARD with her paws then runs away. i feel certain she's laughing inside as she runs. when im praying, she attacks me constantly. she has pulled my hijab over my eyes more than once. ive decided she is a muslim cat too. she can be asleep in another part of the house but somehow senses im in the bedroom praying and inevitably shows up. when she wakes up in the morning, she comes to me sleepily and stands up with her paws against my legs, stretching. she wants me to pick her up and hug her. she stays there for a bit til she decides she's bored with me and then goes her own way. i keep a small stool by the kitchen counter. she likes to stand up on it with her paws on the counter to see what im doing. she's positive she is human.
but the best..i remember one day i was crying and i heard her making a small mewing noise. she was standing up on my leg and she crawled up to my lap. she smelled my lips, my eyes and my tears. she then put her head on my shoulder like she was comforting me.
if i had lost my home, i had nowhere for her to go and i was going to have to give her away. i was stressed out about it. i didnt even want to think about it because it made me so sad. when i discovered that i wouldnt have to leave, i grabbed her first and kissed her so hard. i was crying into her fur and she let me do it without biting me lol.
she's sitting in my lap now sleeping while i type. i cant help it...i love her.
