CATS, am I right?
The good news is, Grem is still really cute. The bad news is, she grew into her ears. I know, it’s a bummer, I miss those big bat ears. Her tail sure is FLUFFY now though so I guess it balances out.
I’ll be honest, the SO was not that happy with me when I showed up with a cat. He didn’t say as much, but his face gave him away. Neither of us have ever been cat people, and we had sure never talked about getting one. More dogs, yes. Always more dogs. But a cat??? Now, though… NOW he’s that guy that’s seriously obsessed with his cat. OBSESSED.
I won’t even tell you how many toys he’s bought her. I can’t, honestly, because they’re all under the couches and coffee table. She’s a hoarder deluxe.
Any initial hesitation Grem had about the dogs is completely gone now. She quickly conquered them and now rules them with an iron paw, spreading fear and terrorizing her subjects on a daily basis.
For real though, the corgi is LEGIT terrified of her. He won’t cross the living room without first looking both ways to see if he can spot the cat, which he inevitably always fails at, and ends up getting divebombed by her anyway. You’ve never seen a corgi run so fast in your life.
Delia, on the other hand, is her best playmate. It would figure that the biggest dog (she’s a GSD mix) would be the one who likes her the most. Those two will play for hours, and Delia is really careful not to step on her or bite her, even when Grem has affixed herself to Delia’s face. Stewie just tries to stay away from her in general… it didn’t take him long to figure out that she’s sharp and pointy at literally every end.
She is still in that full-fledged psychotic kitten phase, where her only two settings are Sleep and Spaz. She’s awfully cute when she’s sleeping. She’s less cute when she’s galloping laps around the house, springboarding off of furniture, dogs, and people, inevitably trying to literally climb the walls in the process. She can jump up on pretty much everything now, and has learned how to climb curtains and window screens.
She has this pretty cute habit of letting out a loud, throaty “MEEEEWWW” right before she does something terribly naughty… makes it kinda hard to get mad at her. There have been a few casualties of her insanity along the way, though.
But she’s also really sweet when she wants to be, and pretty “into” people. She will plop herself in your lap and demand cheek rubs, or try to cuddle your face at what is inevitably the most inopportune time. Again… pretty hard to get mad at her when she’s so damn cute.
Despite not being cat people she has managed to win us both over, and added a lot of humor to the house.
I do kinda feel sorry for the corgi though.

She’s pretty precious. Some of them never get out of the spaz phase though!
I feel like kittens turn into cats a lot faster than puppies turn into dogs. I’m not a cat person either, and I’ve never had one of my own, but certain cats are a-ok in my book. Sounds like Grem would be on that list. Hopefully she doesn’t kill any more plants!
She’s a gorgeous cat.
We have a cat that won us over, too, despite not being cat people in the slightest. Still laughing at Corgi legs flying across the room while the cat is lying in wait.
That poor dumb corgi. It never occurs to him to look UP.
Once a cat claims you to be their chosen servant you are pretty much done-for. Your whole house becomes that cat’s house. My SO claimed to not be a cat person, and now we have 3.
Oh gawd, I can’t stop laughing at the picture of her in the window screen. I can only imagine seeing it in person!
Oh man, I hope you don’t put up a Christmas tree, lol. That cat is going to be aaaaaaaaaaaall over that.
It helps to anchor the tree to a wall + put delicate ornaments you like near the top…
I think we’ll probably skip the tree this year lol
OMG the photo of the blinds is hysterical!!!

I second this!
Any luck getting her to walk on a leash?
I love snuggly kitties! Mine is two and is still in the psycho kitten phase, she loves to run crazy and crash into the windows in the middle of the night, but it has lessened significantly since getting her fixed.
