My cat Rory is the youngest of my four house cats. They are all spoiled of course, but Rory takes the cake (literally). On her first birthday, July 4, 2005, I threw her a birthday party. I bought balloons, party favors (cat toys for her guests) and even had a birthday “cake” (can cat food) for her in a special ceramic cat dish that she shared with the other guests.
Last summer, we purchased a cat stroller that looks like a real baby stroller. Rory absolutely loves going for a “trolley trolley ride” in her stroller. She especially loves trips in the car to the drive thru at the bank and trips to see geese at a nearby lake.
Rory has a Disney Princess canopy doll bed, Barbie mouse, and Russ chirping bird, which are her prized possessions. Her favorite part of the day is when I allow her to play with the water dripping in the kitchen sink with her rubber duckie, or take a shower. She also loves watching “Gilmore Girls” and “Finding Nemo.” I named her after Rory on “Gilmore Girls,” and ever since she was a kitten, she stops whatever she is doing to see why they are saying her name on the television. She also began watching “Finding Nemo” as a kitten and will watch it from start to finish.
From the very beginning, we have known that Rory was very special. She is an amazing therapy cat. She is a well mannered lap cat when it comes to the elderly. We have taken Rory, to visit a nursing home and the residents love her.
I don’t mind when everyone makes fun of me for spoiling my cats because I know they deserve it.
