It’s that time of year again when I’ll be watching people’s cats while they’re away. I work this in between my part-time job. Thankfully most pet owners don’t have a set time for me to look in on their animals and give them fresh food and water. I like to play with them too and squeeze in as much extra time as I can just for this. The little darlings miss their humans and want to be petted and loved as well.
Cats have such different personalities from one another. Sometimes the only thing they really have in common is fur and four legs.
A couple of months ago, I signed up with SitterCity to watch pets in my spare time. Of course by pets I mean cats, because I don’t think I’d take a dog walking job. I’m a cat person all the way. The extra money comes in handy if work is slow and the place isn’t too far off the beaten path.
Over the weekend I got to take care of the sweetest little angel. Of course, I know black cats have the best temperament. They are mellower than other cats, or at the least the ones I’ve known.
This week I have a different cat altogether. This one is rambunctious and a bit wild. Now maybe it’s the age difference, but I don’t think so. This yellow cat has a very bold personality. She loves to bounce off the walls and “go crazy” after she lets me pet her for five minutes max. She isn’t quite the lady that Bella is. Snuggles tries to trip me when I’m carrying her water dish. She’s definitely not a lap cat. But I love taking care of her anyway. I watch this one a dozen times every summer. I’m sure there will be more cat tales to come. Until then, I’m off to see a crazy cat.
