Friday Cat Blogging: Al and Lena’s First Pictures
Thought I would reach back into the depths of my e-mail and pull out the original pictures of Al and Lena that were sent to me back when my roommate asked me if I minded her adding two cats to our then catless apartment. Al and Lena came all the way from New York City via a friend of a friend and here’s the e-mail touting their personalities written by the original owner.
Orange Kitty "Al": One word describes him best: LOVEABLE. This guy is most happy underneath his owner. He scurries to the door when he hears your keys jingle at the door, and loves TLC and kitty kisses, lol. He's rather chill for the most part and loves to be petted, hugged, pulled, dropped (ooops- didn't say that) but lets just say he can handle anyone petting him even screaming 5 year old twins (he loved the attention)
Brown/Black Kitty "Lena": She's our diva... but its ok. She's super sweet and likes to "meow". Has a personality of her own.... a little shy at first--- but once she realizes your feeding here--- she's loyal and loving it. you can tell she's the "common sense" between her and her brother Al....
I have to say that was a pretty apt description of the two. Although in hindsight I wonder about the part where he "hears your keys jingle." Al is deaf. But maybe he wasn't born deaf? And he does have an interesting ability to sometimes greet people at the door despite not hearing.
Even knowing he was deaf though would you have turned down that face?
