Today’s post is dedicated to my wonderful cat Sasha. I recently read a fellow blogger’s post about what kind of pet they wanted to own. I ended up with having the thought of introducing my cat Sasha on my blog. This will be my cat’s official debut so please welcome with her open arms!
Sasha’s the kind of cat that likes to be independent. No matter how many times I try to put her on my lap she refuses to. She likes to have her personal space. For example she may sit beside on my bed at a distance away. At first I didn’t like it but now I’m used to it after understand this is way Sasha is. One of the cute things Sasha does is call for me when she’s hungry. She sticks on my leg meowing for food. She even sits on my bed keeping me company when I have a bad cold. Like all cats Sasha really hates having to take a bath no matter how many she shows us she can lick herself clean she always gets a soaking. hehehe ^^. All in all I’m happy to have a cat like Sasha . Now let’s get on with her origin story!
Introducing my cat Sasha aka Sasha baby, sushi roll ,sunshine ,little ginger MC Sasha , the one with mahou fur etc
Sasha entered my life when I was 12 years old. Things were bad for us here at home because we had mice infestation and every night was filled with fear of mice running around the house. Therefore it was decided by my parents that we should get a cat. Which worked out perfectly because I always wanted a cat ever since I was a little girl. As a child I owned a cat toy with a leash which I dragged outside on the streets. It was a white cat called snowball.
Ever since then I was a fan of cats. Dogs were never really for me. I did start to grow fond dogs more as I grew older. My ideal dog is a husky because they’re so fluffy and cute. Also I think they’re really protective with a nice personality. Big on the outside gentle on the inside.
Anyways I remember we starting our search in the newpaper for people who were selling cats. We had no idea about how to go about buying a pet cat until my uncle came to our rescue. You see my uncle is really big animal lover. My mom would tell me stories about my uncle driving far off in the early hours of the morning to a farm to buy a dog. Every month a new dog was tied to a post outside the house.
My uncle also really loved birds. He once brought home a large parrot which talked. My uncle had many pets which he brought home to my mom and the family. I can’t remember most of them so far this is as much I can recall.
When we told my uncle we were in the market for cat he knew exactly where to look for one. I didn’t really get a chance to look to go out with my uncle to personally choose neither did my family. I was in school at the time when my uncle chose to look for a cat on one of the farms. We as a family were busy with our own lives so we left the choice to my grandmother and my aunt who we are really close with to decide on a cat. After a couple of trips to some farms and a small discussion our cat Sasha arrived just before Christmas.
I remember it was one day during me and my brother’s summer holidays. we were waiting for my uncle’s car to pull up front in the street from my window. We both sat waiting for our newest family member to arrive. Finally my uncle’s car pulled up in front out came my aunt who held a small cardboard box. My mom answered the door for them as my uncle and aunt both came up with the cardboard box. My aunt carried the box into the into the living room and out sprang a little ginger cat scurrying behind the TV. My uncle laughed at the sight, he shortly left after meeting us. My aunt also went on her way to do some shopping.
Then we were left with the cat hiding behind the TV. We had no clue what to do with her. we’ve never taken care of a pet in our lives apart from my mom. Even though she had taken care dogs cats were different and it had been a long time since she had a pet. We went on with our day until my grandma came over wanting to see the new cat. She was the only one who got her to eat and drink something. We were all too afraid until she arrived.
From then on the day was pretty hectic. We suddenly lost Sasha on the first day. We went into panic mode looking in every corner of our house until we found her in the bedroom hiding behind the TV. We then tried putting a collar around her neck with was a bad idea. She strongly opposed it. She spent a good few minutes biting it off. Eventually we took it off letting her be. To top it all off Sasha then had a small accident on the ground from all the attention we gave her.
Really it was a tough day however very memorable for me and my family. Having a pet in our lives was a dream I didn’t think was going to be possible. Now it will be around 10 years since we’ve had Sasha be apart of our lives and she’s still lively playful and cute as ever.
Here’s to more fun times!
see you guys later! ^_^
