What I am about to tell you is beyond ridiculous…
But my cats are almost superstars.
Well, SuperStars on YouTube, and we both know that this is the only kind of true superstar. (Hide yo kids, hide yo wife… If you know what I mean, then you know what I mean)
When Andrew and I were first married, I begged him to go with me to Helen Woodward Animal Shelter “just to look at the kittens,” one Saturday afternoon after a Jamba Juice run. (Being newly weds is so fun 🙂
Well, we all know how that looking turned out. Lucy was literally the first kitten we physically could look at as we walked in, her cage was almost blocking the door. And there she was, grey and swinging from the ceiling of her cage, or ‘kitty enclosure.’ “Oooooh! I want that one! Just look at her!”
Before my husband could give me the ‘you said we were just going to LOOK!’ eyes, they were fixed on our grey dingbat, filled with love for this little creature. We ignored the ‘do not put fingers into the cages’ sign and she playfully batted at our fingertips, then forcfully rubbed up againt them like she had never felt anything so heavenly.
To say we were in love with our little cat waaaaaaaaas an understatement…
(And these photos aren’t even the ridiculous part of this post yet. Oh sheesh.)
Fast forward a year later, saw a sign for a free kitten, blah blah blah, got it, it was way cuter then Lucy, but only average personality.
They got along very well, and would often times playfight, as they do to this day. One of those times, when Piper was very young, I filmed it.
Then I put it on YouTube.
My dumb ol’ cats, guess how many views they have for a mediocre at best film!?
More than 23,000!
23,000 people have viewed it. Yes, I consider it 23,000 people because I don’t expect people to be viewing this more than once.
I told you. Internet phenomenons.
