Thank you Facebook (actually my cousin Jen!) for alerting me to this amazing holiday, National Cat Day! Seriously, call me a cat lady all you want, doesn’t phase me one bit 🙂 Why? Because if you’ve ever had the privilege of meeting our fluffy, full-of-personality kitty, then you’ll know she is the best. I am not exaggerating. Pill, (yes her name is Pill … short for Pillford, but I assure you … she is also a pill) was originally Jon’s cat. He’s had her since his sophomore year in college and it’s nothing short of a miracle that she is still alive. From walking the edge of a Boston apartment building roof, sleeping on a window ledge with no screen to protect her from a 3-story fall below, to making it known that she is the Queen of the castle to any and all other household pets; Pill is the boss. I say she “was” Jon’s cat because over the last 4 years she and I have become little buddies. She follows me around the apartment, rests near my feet while I am working in my office, “patiently” waits on my side of the bed for me to wake up in the morning to feed her, and is always there when I am in need of a good cuddle. To say I love Pill is an understatement. She is truly one of my best little friends and I love her as much as I can only imagine I will, one day, love my children.
So, Happy National Cat Day Pilly … we love you to the moon and back <3!!
