Homer the Cat

Posted May 03, 2015

Our cat, Homer, is a little ball of awesomeness. He definitely favors Chris over me, but I think it's a territorial thing. He is pretty much self-sufficient. He likes to help Buddy get into the trash and wreck things; I'm pretty sure they're in cahoots. Homer is the only cat I've ever known who plays fetch. Seriously. It's awesome. He's not too energetic, but once in a while he'll get a wild hair and start running all over the place. He's very good with Buddy, our dog, and they play together quite often.

The only thing Homer needs our help with is food and water--aside from those things, he's completely fine wandering about on his own. He doesn't get underfoot unless we're cooking, and he will steal your pizza if you're not careful.

Regardless of the issues that he poses at times, because of Homer, I've definitely discovered that I'm far more a cat person than anything else. Homer is completely adorable and I love him.

A bit of advice: every cat is different. That's what I've learned from experience. Some cats will come to you when they want attention, and others are perfectly fine on their own. My suggestion is to test the waters. Give your cat love and affection, and I'm sure everything will work out the way it's supposed to.
