today is harriet’s 4th birthday. i’ve had her since she was 3 months old and can’t overstate how happy i am to have her and to be her owner. she’s a cat, so she’s kind of a bitch, and certainly seems like she can do without me for the majority of the time, but having her around to take care of has been so valuable to me. she provides company that i am otherwise missing by living “alone.” she’s smart, she’s savvy, she’s sweet when she wants to be, she’s expressive, and she’s really good at down dog. she’s my hare and i love her.

that’s my harriet!

reviewofmycat:

Cat: Harriet
Owner: Loreal
Appearance: A
“Harriet is gray with patches of white on her underbelly - the most prominent one near between her rear legs, near her lady parts (she’s dainty like that).  She’s a stickler for grooming and can often be found ensuring that her coat is lint- and dirt-free.  She has large yellow eyes and the cutest little face.  Her tail is long and expressive.  She’s a veeeeery purrrrty lady.”
Sociability: C
“She’s incredibly curious about new people and immediately acknowledges visitors.  Whether or not you’ll keep her attention, however, is a different story.  She’ll come to you when she wants to, you can’t force her to accept your petting, and if you try, she’ll nip you to teach you a swift lesson.  She gets along well with other cats, but again, not until she lets them know that she’s feisty and not willing to put up with any bull.”
Usefulness: A
“Harriet is a huntress and kills bugs dead!  I suspect, though, that she sees them not as intruders or pests, but as potential play things so when she kills them, she’s disappointed that she can’t torture them anymore.”
Huggability: B
“When she’s in a hug-y mood, she’s the best feline pillow ever. She’s recently taken to laying next to me when I go to sleep at night, which is sweet.  She also lets me cradle her in my arms when I get home in the evenings and puts her front paws on my chest in a comforting, “hello, dear, tell me all about your day,” kind of way.  She’s just the best (the cat’s meow, if you will).”
Overall Grade: B

that’s my harriet!

I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t tempted by this article to buy a harness and start taking Harriet on walks in the park.

  • i have a crush on a barista whom i suspect no longer recognizes me because i changed the way i wear my hair; if he’s that easily confused, then he is not for me
  • i have a crush on another boy who is not emotionally available; he is, therefore, a waste of time.
  • for a lac-tard i make a lot of ice cream for myself. and then eat it.
  • i’ve been drinking since 6, but because of all the ice cream, i worry about getting to sleep at a reasonable hour
  • i really want to get to the pool when it opens tomorrow. i got there 1/2 hour late this morning and the place was pa-acked
  • getting a second cat would keep harriet out my face 24/7. getting a second cat, though, could result in having two cats in my face 24/7. conundrum.
  • i cannot WAIT for mercury to go direct. on with the next phase of my chart, puh-leeeeeze, kthanxbye!
  • studying 8 hours each day is exhausting, more so than going to 10 hours of class a week, that’sfor sure
  • the fact that the grades i get this semester don’t matter doesn’t make me any less likely to study. that’s just the way i am, i guess. i can’t help but think, though, about how inefficient studying that much is. i could be doing something that results in a net good to society instead.
