My cat


My cat, Kalimba

Meet Kalimba (pronounced kah-lem-bah)! His name is Spanish, named after some famous Guatemalan singer. My sister named him, used to own him. I got him in 2011, after she divorced her husband (long story, no longer important). Anyway, he is 12 years old.

He used to have hardly anything to do with humans – very skittish! He doesn’t like when new people come over, especially men. He has, for the most part, accepted my boyfriend and he eats out of our hands. He loves when my boyfriend cooks, practically eats off our plates.

He does pee on my boyfriend’s clothes, if he leaves them on the floor. But I think he has for the most part stopped. It’s a territorial thing – especially for males. I think my cat thinks that my boyfriend is taking his (the cats) place in my life. He seems to like my boyfriend, he just pees on his clothes if they’re not picked up. Even the bed sheets that have just been washed.

He is a tuxedo cat. Didn’t know black and white cats had a specific name (kinda like calico, tabby…black and white dogs are called party dogs), until not long ago.

He thinks he’s a dog…acts like one! He gets me up almost every morning at 430, without fail. Sometimes he lets me sleep til 5am or so. If he hears my boyfriend’s alarm go off at 330 (and he usually does) he starts meowing at the door within 5 minutes!

This is from when we had the floors redone…the 20 gallon fish tank was in this spot. Didn’t move it until I went to bed the night before. He loved laying on the bare plywood (flooring)…nice and cool. It was August after all!

Well, I’ve got a ton of Kalimba pictures but I figure I’ve bored you enough. There will probably be more posts about him in the future!

Until next time ๐Ÿ˜ธ
