minxy: Teal'c raises a hand to say "hey". (Default)

I am enjoying having married person words to describe my spouse. I don't know if i can describe the essential lack of difference between being married and not except that other people are not confused anymore when you say "husband" or "wife". It makes so many things simpler.

I didn't understand that about marriage, I think. I supported marriage for anyone who wanted it, but I didn't think I wanted it. I'm not sure I respect this big difference in people's treatment of the person who has been in my life with essentially this level of commitment for 5+ years, but I understand now. I understand why this is easier and why I think it should be available to any folks who want those words.

Anyways. That is not the point of this post.

The point is that a cat has moved in. Ignoring the negotiations of the humans involved (or who think they are making decisions here), a cat has decided he is my cat. I thought he should wait and meet my spouse (see above) before deciding, but no. Cat moved in, essentially 1-2 days before E came home. He loves E. Cat (aka "Tristan" if that is, in fact, his name) has frolicked so happily, and snuggled so vehemently, nightly, that we were not sure what to do with a cat that had no limits to personal space. All scritches were good scritches! ALWAYS. I... what?

Day 2: he climbed all the way into our laps.

Day 4: he flipped the switch while lying between us on the couch, having bounced back and forth for hours getting various types of strokes and pets and scritches. I feel like we've established that the cat does have needs and lines one shall not cross.

I missed having a little soul around the house, happy to see us and pleased to snuggle and tell you all about his day doing cat stuff. What a wonderful little dude.

Welcome "Tristan"! He sounds like a very wonderful cat.

Where did he come from? Did he just arrive on your doorstep? (I have known this to happen.)

I feel Tristan has made a good decision, if he is not so much a trailer-travelling cat.

Meows like a mouse, though.

we've had cats that squeaked more than meowed. we even had this one cat who didn't meow at all for a couple of years, but found his voice when my mom accidently stepped on his foot & he let out this kind of long squawk/screech. afterwards he would coo like a dove or a pigeon instead of meowing.
