I never, ever, thought I could legitimately dedicate a post to my cats without looking like a crazy cat lady but thanks to Amber's [brilliant] idea for National Pet Week. I totally can.
Let me introduce myself. I am Grace of Money Smart Fashion. These are my cats... Dolce, Gabbana, and Chloe. Yes, that Dolce & Gabbana and that Chloe. [ My life is fashion people, even my cats].
Dolce & Gabbana are brothers. SSF (Super-Saving Fiance) adopted them for me as a birthday present just a few weeks into us dating. I had really wanted a cat since I was moving into my own apartment but never thought I would actually get one, let alone two. It was adorable and terrifying all at once. I had never liked a boy (bleh, boys) as much and as soon as I liked SSF and now here I was just a few weeks into our relationship the mother of his cats!
Two years later, afer graduating college, moving to Maryland, and starting careers we added Chloe to our family. I am a sucker for those little kennels they have at Petsmart where they showcase all the kitties in need of forever homes. The day we got her was a result of some clever positioning on Petsmart's part. Chloe was just a little thing [still is] sitting all alone in one of those big cages. As soon as I saw her I promptly sent SSF to the closest ATM to withdraw the adoption fee. Done and Done.
Plenty of people seem to think cat's lack personality. I would beg to differ. These cats are brimming with it.
Gabbana is our own furry version of Eeyore. Gabanna tends to mope around the house, sleep all alone, and is kind of a mama's boy. On rare occasions he'll come out of his shell. I don't know about you but I totall see the resembelence between Gabbana and Andy Samberg.
Dolce, well Dolce is a character. He talks, a lot, and for all intents and purposes is pretty flakey but he would make a great segment on Sesame Street teaching lessons about "in" and "under".
Finally, there is Chloe. I would tell you about chloe but I think the pictures pretty much speak for themselves.
So there you have it, after far to many pictures, that is my furry little family and SSF. If you are thinking about getting a pet of your own please, please, please adopt. There are many other cats (and dogs, if you are into that sort of thing) looking for a home and a family that will smother them with love. If you are local to the Maryland-DC area check out Last Chance Animal Rescue. If you made it this far through the post, congratulations and Happy Pet Week!
