So I’m Not Dead, And I Have This New Cat

Greetings and salutations, readers!

This is Humphrey.

He likes boxes (especially my brother’s typewriter box) and sleeping smack in the middle of my pillows like clockwork at 10 pm.

He’s insistent that he is Lord and Majesty of all the cats in my house although let’s face it, Fabian is still Alpha cat around here.

Lots of people have told me he looks like Grumpy Cat Jr, but he’s actually one of the chilliest, snuggliest cats I’ve ever known.

There’s a long and involved story surrounding how I got him, which will probably bore you all to tears, (it’s also the story of how I had an emotional breakdown in the animal shelter, which I’m not about to tell the internet just yet) so I’ll skip it for now.

In a nutshell, I met a squoosh-faced cat at my local animal shelter, and six days later I got Humphrey. And @phoenixphaedrana was there to capture the moment I scooped him up and kissed his fudging adorable kitty nose for the first time. (thanks, friendo!)

I call him by pretty much every pet name in the book, and all the ones that are not in said book. My mom calls him the ‘pity kitty’ because she only let me get him because I was having such an awful month. Now she loves him almost as much as I do, so clearly I have good taste in kitties.

If you want to see more of Humphrey, I made him an Instagram after three different people at the vet’s office asked if he had one. This cat apparently is made for stardom. He’s @snorfalopagus

I apologize that this post isn’t very long. I mostly wanted to post kitty pictures. Do you guys have any post requests? Comment them down below or shoot me an email and I’ll definitely do them!

love you to bits, Humphrey

What have you been up to? Thoughts on cats?

  1. Humphrey is so seriously adorable. I don’t even know him and I already love him. I’m so glad to meet people on the Internet who love cats as much as I do. Most of the people I meet love dogs best, and while I do like dogs I prefer cats. And kittens are the cutest. I really love cats. It’s kinda borderline obsessive love. Not in a creepy way. Just in the way I obsess over fandoms. I’m a member of the cat fandom. I literally googled ‘celebrities who love cats’ and apparently Taylor Swift is a cat person. Also, Tricia Helfer has ten cats (possibly more) and they are so freaking adorable. Even if you have no idea who she is (most people don’t *dramatic sigh when nobody knows who your favorite celebrity/fictional character is even when they’re the awesomest things in this universe*) just look up ‘Tricia Helfer cats’. Anyway, I. LOVE. THIS. POST.

    1. Awww, thank you! I love cats in a way that definitely is obsession. Just come to my house and meet all six of the furballs that sleep everywhere. Lol, I don’t like Taylor Swift but that’s cool she’s a cat person. Oh my gosh, ten cats? That sounds amazing.

      1. YES, I would love to go to your house. I’d actually love to go anywhere there’s cats. It would be amazing. And hence why she’s my favorite actress. Well, that and the fact that she’s good at acting.
