Kitty Bowl

My mom’s comment on my last post (regarding a picture of me and one of our kitties) reminded me of a fun (and gross) memory.

When I was young, we had two cats – Sinky and Ashley. Sinky’s real name was Snowball, but Dad started calling him “Stinky” at some point and I must not have been able to say stinky so he became known as “Sinky” for as long as I can remember. I really loved that cat. (Ashley was scared of me-probably because we used to chase him around the house, exploiting that fear.) Anyways, I used to enjoy crawling around on the floor pretending I was a cat as well. Also on the floor was their bowl of drinking water. To get the full cat experience, I felt it necessary to lap the water out of their bowl in the same way they did. Ick. Definitely something that I will keep in mind for when our daughter is old enough to crawl around.

Mom – if you find that picture of me with Sinky, please forward it to me!

    Eww…well, at least mom can be glad she had ONE clean daughter! I don’t think I did things like that! The one gross thing I can think of was falling into the duck pond (I was actually chased by Brian’s duck!) and that wasn’t on PURPOSE! Aye Abby!
