I started volunteering at a cat shelter. I quickly learned several things:
1. There really are crazy cat people
2. Despite my enjoyment of cats, I am not one of them
3. Just because you are not allergic to one cat doesn't mean you won't be allergic to 20 cats
4. Crazy cat people are fucking crazy
My favorite is Cupcake, a tiny ghostly gray thing with the most outgoing personality I have ever seen in an animal. She is extremely affectionate and likes to climb up my back to lay across my neck like a catfur stole. I let this happen for a couple of seconds until I get nervous, because...she bites.
I love her, but her name is stupid. Cupcake. I would probably name her Mary Pickford.
