I am happy to introduce the newest member of the Painted Lady Fingers' household: Mermaid! This sweet and playful kitty was rescued off the street by my friend Stacia from college. I offered to help my friend Drew place her in a good home in Center City. Once I saw her, I knew she was meant to live with me and my ragdoll cat, Fortune.
Mermaid has been with us for just over a week. She acquired her name because of an usual grey marking on her forehead that resembles the tail fin of a mermaid. She loves the bathtub and is fascinated by the sound of water emerging from the faucet. Like mermaids of myth and legend, she also adores collecting treasure. The area beneath the futon serves as her sea cave. There she keeps all of her trinkets. If her toys are missing, I have an idea where they have been assembled. Anything that catches her fancy can be found there. I once saw her trotting across the apartment with a dish glove.
Mermaid enjoys sharing food with me. Her favorite treat is rose petal jam on honey wheat bread. She also loves sweet potatoes, peanut butter with strawberry preserves, marinated tofu and garlicky marinara sauce with romano cheese. She has no interest even in the best quality cat treats.
|My name is Mermaid.|
|You are welcome to adore me.|
|The birds outside the window are making such delicious sounds .|
|I am the Queen of Sunbeams!|
|Can you see my mermaid's tail?|
|It looks a bit like what my dolphin friends have.|
|With all this modeling|
|I must rest my cheekbones.|
I hope you all enjoyed Mermaid's introduction. Do your pets have any interesting food preferences or entertaining habits?
Happy painting, ladies!
