Meet my baby: Julie Bug. I call her "Jewy" for short. Julie's very different from any other cat I've owned. She only likes one person--that would be me--and prefers to hide in any tight crevices she can squeeze into. Unfortunately, even though she can be calm around me and be a very sweet kitty, she is very nervous and darts at loud noises. She hates men--must be the deep voices--and dogs; you could say she's a great feminist. She likes to be clean, so Julie tolerates a bath every six months or so (keeps the dander on the down-low level for awhile which helps with my seasonal allergies). Julie came to me as a kitten of about 4 weeks old. We found her inside the compartment between the truck door and the front wheel. How she managed to cram herself up in there we'll never know. See, didn't I say she likes tight spaces? Not as tight was the pickle she got herself into yesterday. She got up inside an old air conditioning unit we have sitting on our roof and got stuck the water-wheel compartment. You should have heard her meowing poor thing. Scared me to death--thought we'd never get her out of there. Thankfully, Julie got out safe and sound with only a minor wound where a claw use to be. She has short term memory, so she didn't suffer to much trauma, LOL, but I doubt she'll be going near the roof anytime soon. Julie will be 4 years old on May 27th. She also likes to read. Don't believe me? Check it out:
Oh, okay. So she can't read, but she sure likes to try. Library books are her favorite because she loves to smell where they've been. Chow for now and happy reading.
