i grow weary of only ever seeing people's cats on their intro threads. i demand a greater number of cat pictures. if you have a bunch of pictures of your pets and you want someone to ooh and aah at them, I VOLUNTEER!!! i would love to ooh and aah at your pets. i am not prejudiced against any sort of pet except large spiders, which will upset me, a lot, please please please do not show me large spiders. especially not tarantulas, no matter how cute. i am incapable of appreciating them, and also i will probably cry. that's Just The Way It Is, Folks everything else is FAIR GAME!! please include a NAME!! a BRIEF BIOGRAPHY will bring me great joy but is entirely optional i will start. here is steve (AKA steve-o, stevie, my dear, fucko, jackass, sweetpea, catto, cattus, You Fucker), my glorious cat. his name used to be Sativa, back when he was owned by my ex-roommate's pothead best friend. he is very fluffy and very, very cuddly. he is also very bitey and likes to scratch the walls instead of his scratching posts. he is The Worst, and i love him more than life itself. i took several pictures of him just now because you need to catch him off-guard. he does not submit to photoshoots gladly >:3 a timeline: (1) the paparazzo catches him off-guard. (2) he notices the paparazzo and expresses his disdain for her profession. (3) he establishes a small colony. (4) finally, he takes a nap after all that work, and i lose ownership of my arm. OKAY NOW YOU!!!!!
