Name: Perkins McKinley
Age: 13 months (born on Carly's birthday!)
Size: small!

Important questions:

When did you get this kitty?

Friday. Or, rather, Carly did -- I was at work at the time. When I got home ... kitty!

But Karina, aren’t you allergic to cats?

Why yes, yes I am.

And now you have a cat.

That’s correct.

Is that wise?

Probably not. But hey, I figure it’ll be like when we had Marmalade staying with us: about three or four weeks of miserable hell and then my body will be unable to continue to react with such vehemence and will knock it off already, leaving me perhaps vaguely sniffly at most.

Um … that sounds like an interesting plan.

I thought so.

Where’d you get this cat of yours?

The Toronto Humane Society. I have heard interesting things about them from various sources, but I figure none of those things are the cats’ fault.

There were a few there that we liked, but Perkins seemed like he was our cat. (I was also a big fan of a wee pale orange cat who seemed to be a big fan of me as well, but Carly – understandably – did not want another orange cat, so.)

So how did you name your cat Perkins?

Carly’s a big fan of Anthony Perkins. This is also why his second name is McKinley; I’m a big fan of Robin McKinley. Also, it sounded cute.

Did you realize that you could say his name “Purr-kins”?

Not until after he’d already been firmly named. And I’d thank you not to mention that again. Ever.

Is this journal going to be all about your cat now?

No. Would you like it to be?

No. … But what if I did?

I would wish you good luck with that.

Can your cat do any tricks?

Does drinking out of the bathroom tap count as a trick?

Not really.

Then no.

Are you planning to tape bacon on your cat?

Lord, no! Bacon costs money, hypothetical questioning person! Do I look like I’m made out of money? If I had bacon, I would eat it!

All right, all right, settle down already.

Sorry, I’m just kinda hungry right now.

I understand. Wasn’t there a box of Timbits on the front desk just a second ago?

Yeah, totally. And now I can’t find it. I bet the developers took all the donuts.


Tell me about it.

Is that Morgan in your icon? They look like they could be kitty-twins! (That being the accepted term, of course. *g*)

Ooooo, kittycat!

Sandie is allergic to cats, among other stuff, and we have six. ::shrug::

Hey, what did I say about never mentioning that name again?! ;) (He is really cute though, eh?)

He does so enjoy showing off his wee feet.

Don't overfeed
When he gets fat you will have no choice but to call him Porkins. Ate-Tony Porkins.

Re: Don't overfeed
Hee! I think I'm going to call him Porkins now anyway.
