Show Your Diva

It was a year ago today that our good friend Sweet Praline left us.


Thanks to the beautiful Praline, I have my forever home.  You see, Sweet Pea and Gabriel's Daddy thought that Praline was the most beautiful cat he had ever seen, and when he said he wanted a new friend for Sweet Pea, Mommy started browsing PetFinder to find the perfect match for her.  She saw me and thought there was an uncanny resemblance to Praline and asked if she could foster me.  Of course, once she had me, she couldn't let me go (not even to Sweet Pea's Daddy), and the rest is history.


Some physical similarities aren't the only thing I have in common with Sweet Praline - I am also a diva!  I want things my way and there is no compromising.

After Mommy so cruelly had me shaved for the second time in as many years, I demanded to sleep on the bed under the covers at all times.  Mommy noticed that when she would get into bed I would leave, so because she was worried I was maybe cold without all my furs, she slept on the couch for 2 weeks! 

Find another place to sleep - this bed is occupied!

It could have been because she felt guilty or because of the dirty looks I gave her, but in the end I got my way.

A queen-sized bed for a pint-sized diva!

Praline, we miss and think of you every day!  Mom Paula, you are in our thoughts.  We love you!

Bella

Bella - you are such a purrfect Diva! Mom Paula remembers when your mom sent her an email about possibly getting you and she replied with a YES! You do remind us of Sweet Praline in so many ways. Thank you for participating and remembering Sweet Praline and Mom Paula today.

Bella, you deserve a special place in the Diva Museum - even I haven't gotten my human to sleep on the couch for one night, much less two weeks!

CCL Wendy said...

Yes, Bella -- you and Sweet Praline have the same adorably grumpy face and the diva attitude to go with it!

As well as getting under your Mommy's skin, you've gotten under her covers as well. Well done, little diva!
