One year ago on this date, I welcomed a mixed blue point Himalayan cat into my life. I adopted him from a couple who, after graduating from UC Berkeley, were headed to cat-unfriendly places. Why they adopted a cat in their senior year of undergrad only to have to give the cat up 6 months later is crazy to me, but who am I to judge?
Anyway, his name was Schmee and he was very cute. He was also extremely shy but since he was “trapped” into a corner, I was able to pet him and see that he wasn’t aggressive or mean. I decided to adopt him but a new name was in order. He was definitely NOT a “Schmee.” Being as pretty as he is, I went with the name Sasha. Fitting, huh?
He took a couple of weeks to get comfy, and his favorite hiding place initially was under the oven. How he managed to get under there, I haven’t a clue! Anyway, since then, we’ve grown on each other. He’s even become slightly braver with time. Recently, he has come out to greet company, as long as it’s a small group.
Happy “anniversary” Sasha! ♥
