i had someone at my new job say "you look like a cat person" after i told them i had two of them.
i've heard that before. & it's slightly offensive, no? why is it when i hear "cat lady" or even "cat person" i think of a crazy person.
anyway. i am a not a just a cat person, i am an animal person. i would have a dog in a heartbeat, if i could... & a bird & a hamster.
no fish though. you can't cuddle a fish.
we're getting used to living here in brooklyn. i didn't think it was possible to be w/o a car...well, here i am... no car, and loving it.
the biggest downside to this, however, is grocery shopping.
last night i went to trader joe's for the first time, and went ballistic.
big mistake. BIG MISTAKE.
i had to walk those groceries [4 bags + a full backpack] 4 blocks to the bus. then 1 1/2 blocks home.
i would take 10 steps & set everything down. take 12 step . set everything down. & so on.
as i was crossing the street, a bus honked at me... the nerve.
i felt like a real new yorker right then, i looked right at her (& bus' headlights) and said "really??"
today was a super nice sunny but very chilly day.
a big grey one, and teensy tiny orange shy guy.
at least they will have a cat person coming by & visiting them a few times a week. maybe i'll steal a few treats from coop & rozzy for them...
