I haven't shared my fear of cats with many people .....
but it has been out in the open this past month or so since I have been asked to CAT-SIT not once but
I never grew up around cats.
I have a complete fear of cats (even kittens).
I assume cats will stare me down, pounce, and attack
Like this .....
My experience last month left me in a panic calling girlfriends to teach me how to call/find the cat that was completely MIA. Then once I found the kitty, I was terrified hearing it cry under the bed and was scared to lift the dust ruffle because I thought it would kill me. The kitty had a few tummy problems and was acting out, but it seems the the poor thang' was having separation anxiety from his mommy.
This week, my girlfriend went to TX and convinced me Bella was less like a cat and more like a dog, so I told myself I could handle her. WELL, tonight was a big night for me because Bella and I totally bonded. I was less timid, and I think Bella caught that vibe. Yay for not being so scared!!!!
AND, I cleaned out my first litter box in my entire life, haha!
After Googling images for this lovely litter box above,
I found a picture of this fancy box.
Gabe and I emailed our friends, Tyler and Channah, who LOVE cats and told them this was their early Christmas present from us. We said we are going to buy several of these and fill them with cats at our place, and told them we will only let the cats out when they come over to visit so they will feel more comfortable.
HAHAHAH! We so funny :)
