Cat like a Dog

Just like I mentioned on this post, Boots, our cat is like a dog.  When we go for walks, she likes to follow us and only disappears or more like runs for her life once we meet other “real” dogs also out for their walks with their humans.

And as mentioned already, when T is out with her Dad, Boots pines after her like a little love-sick-puppy.  But when T is home and is suddenly consumed with emotion and love for her cat which she likes to demonstrate by giving her cat a cuddle (to onlookers it would look like my daughter is strangling the poor cat), only then would poor Boots ran away from her, most times she likes staying in the same room with T.

What our poor cat doesn’t know is that her beloved human has actually asked for a dog as a birthday present.  Yes, a real dog!  Not a cat who thinks she’s a dog. But a real furry, barking dog.  And what she doesn’t also know is that we, her beloved human’s parents have finally decided that it is indeed time for our little family to have a dog once again.

I hope our cat who thinks she’s a dog, won’t see this as a betrayal.

Let’s see.

    Lovely photos! Boots sounds like my best friend’s cat, who tries to bark like a dog all the time. Their identity crises are kind of hilarious.

    • Yes they are. I’m not a cat person. But Bootsy (as we like to call her) is a-one-of-a-kind cat especially the way she pines after T, really endearing. I just hope she takes it well once a dog joins our little family. Btw, still haven’t seen The Mindy Project yet, will report back once I have! =)

    I love the pictures! Good luck with the dog! We are still deciding about getting one! The pressure from the kids is getting intense!
