Today I thought I would talk about Afro. I've had many people ask why I named her Afro, and it's because she was born with almost a mane, and when she was an itty bitty,it looked like she had a little baby afro. She is probably the derpiest of the bunch, so she was almost named Derp! I think Afro was definitely the better choice!
|Very deep in thought|
|She gives my legs hugs!!|
Interestingly enough, she got on Dylan's nerves soooooo bad! I honestly have no idea why, he would sometimes hiss and chase her away just for walking by him. And she has a particular meow when he would chase her, and I interpreted the meow as like a question. Like "hey, what did I do dude?" But she was never mean to him, and she never swatted back at him the way she might if it was someone else. I always wished I Dylan could have let me know why the heck she was so annoying to him.
She loved to bum rush the front door of my apartment when I came home. She would rush out into the hallway, and immediately stand on my feet. She didn't want to go back inside, she wanted to explore, but she needed me right there to protect her. She was the worst when I had bags of groceries, because she was so quick. She got left in the hallway once because I didn't know she had snuck out. I heard frantic scratching on the door from the outside, and there she was.
I mentioned yesterday that they all have nicknames, and her two nicknames are Fro Fro and also frizzy Froo. I feel I might be sharing too much of my cat craziness with the nicknames, but I am who I am.
The last few days in my apartment, I swear she knew what was happening. She would sit and stare at me, boring holes through my soul. And she was so talkative. I feel like she was trying to tell me to pull myself out of my depression and save them! I'm so sorry I didn't have the strength to listen to you Afro.
I can't wait to hear he tell me all about it when I get them back. My leg nook misses her, it gets lonely.
She has such a sweet, childlike nature I hope this horrible experience doesn't take that away from her, as life can do.
In case anyone is reading this and is new, I have a GoFundMe page going to save my cats, and myself. Here is my page if you are interested.
And I will never be able to say it enough, like ever, but thank you everyone for all the support and donations and kind words. I was in a dark place last week, and didn't even know if I would still be on this earth, and to even have the hope I have is nothing short of a miracle, and I really mean that. I have a secret sappy, happy ending side and this is making me feel like I'm living in the middle of a feel good movie. And that is an amazing feeling.
