Warning... lengthy cat post - keep scrolling if you're not interested...if you're still here, well then you know how important my animals are to me, and today is a special day for one of my kittays!!! today we celebrate sadie's 3yr adoptiversary!!!!!!!!
3yrs ago today, this little tortie came into my life, all tentative and skittish, when i'd recently lost my 15yr old cat bijou and had a rambunctious 11mth old black cat named loki that needed a buddy. loki wanted to be best friends right away... sadie did not! 🙃 but slowly and surely sadie's trust and dare i say love, grew for both of us! before sadie, i'd never had a cat where patience was that essential, and where milestones of trust still happen to this day... i mean, just a year ago it was a pipe dream that she'd ever be a lapcat, and yet now she loves getting cuddles and sleeping on my lap, particularly when i'm in the "cat chair"! i love witnessing this gradual growth from this gorgeous fierce little peanut.
other sadie fun facts i've grown to know and love: she purrs like a machine, loves belly rubs, has developed a one minute tolerance/limit to loki's head-grooming efforts, has claimed her side/area of the bed, enjoys being the little spoon when i'm watching tv in bed, and while she's still not a fan of being picked up, she's much better about it but still loves playing coy 98% of the time *pet me with your eyes human*!!! and finally....can't forget one of her most redeeming qualities... she keeps loki in check!!!
