“For many people who are so lost in their minds, so much involved in their thought processes, the only moments they have when they are not trapped in that is when they are relating to their animal, their pet.”
– Eckhart Tolle
Hello, I’m Sofi, as you can see from my photo, I am a blue-point Siamese mixed with a Tabby cat. This blog is about “Respecting our Differences”. I’m pretty different! If you didn’t get the joke, that’s cat humor. Before Barbara Wade wrote about animals: cats and squirrels mostly, and a lot of other things. Now that I am in charge, you are going to be hearing my cat point of view for a while, so keep watching for my new blogs.
Theses days I live with grandma. I’ve lived with her for about a year. Grandma’s daughter, who I call mom, gave me to her mother. It’s a long story about how my mom gave me to grandma. You can read about it in my book, which is called Sofi’s Tale.
I am quite a well-adjusted cat because grandma and I get along well. It helps that grandma loves me. I snuggle with her almost every night. She also tells me I’m a good girl. She used to be a teacher so she is good about praising my good behavior and rarely scolds me. Of course, that says that I am a good cat, too.
Grandma knows how to play with me and does an excellent job giving me pats on my behind. Sometimes, I am a little demanding with lots of meowing to get those pats. She also pets me a lot while she watches her shows on her tablet; all that petting makes BOTH of us happy. Grandma also brushes me daily. I’ve been told that my fur is silky smoothe.
I do have a few things I hate: MEDICINE. Don’t try to make me take ANY PILLS orally, even if you disguise them in food. Another thing I hate are BATHES. Thank goodness, groomers now tell cat owners NOT to bathe us cats. For years we cats tried to show you humans (through aggressive behavior)- DON’T BATHE US! Finally, informed humans are listening.
There are a few other things, but you’ll have to read more of my blogs to learn about those things I have a low tolerance for. Generally, I am agreeable, (even my Vet says that). Like most cats I love my independence and as an indoor cat, I wish I could go outside. I have horrific flea allergies, and now I live in a place that has what are known as “super” fleas. One flea bite can sent me on an itching frenzy. That’s my cross to bear.
If you want to learn my whole “backstory,” you can read about me in my book: Sofi’s Tale by Barbara E. Wade. It will be coming out soon as a paperback.
