Dogs—I love them! I love their loyalty, their undeviating happiness, their desire for human interaction, their slobberyness, and, of course, their soft, soft ears and soft coats. I’d be a liar if I didn’t admit though that, this family’s cat won me over. She wasn’t the typical sly cat—she had some dog-like characteristics that reeled me in.
Her full name is Mrs. Jon Bon Jovi, aka Jovi, and she is a character indeed. As the session progressed, she slowly and sneakily placed herself in many of the photos. According to her mom, this is how she rolls. She likes to be where the action is, but not necessarily the center of attention. She is a bit of a spy like many cats: but unlike most cats, she likes to be pretty close to the action.
Jovi tolerates her “sister” and her sister tolerates her. Unless they are both after the same toy, that is when the trouble starts. For the most part, this active toddler seemed fine with Jovi during my visit. Instead it was her diaper rash that was bumming her out that evening. Can you blame her? Jovi was right there keeping a watchful eye on her as her parents tried soothing her with a bath, dinner and some stories. That cat has got the life, and I have to say she won me over by the end of the evening.
