It was one year ago today that I drove out to the boondocks near Cazenovia Lake and met the adorable 3-month-old kitten I named Daisy.
And while it may only be a year since I brought Daisy to her forever home, it feels like she’s always been here.
It was instant bonding between Daisy and me. There were over a dozen kittens in this lady’s garage when I visited one year ago. But Daisy was the one who ran up to me and started purring.
The moment I picked her up, I knew she was the one.
One year later, I know I made the right choice.
Daisy and I are inseparable, which isn’t always a good thing. More than once, she has gotten soaked trying to stay in the shower with me, the dope.
The funny thing is, Daisy always acts surprised when she gets wet in the shower. She runs away like a scalded poodle only to return a few minutes later to circumnavigate the outer rim of my claw-foot tub.
When she was but a little bug, Daisy loved to sleep curled up on my shoulder:
And one year later, she still thinks she’s small enough to do it.
Yes, I’m bald right now. I have Lupus, guys. This month has been an absolute Lupus shit-show for me and two weeks ago my hair started to fall out (again). Rather than walk around with big bald spots on my head, I just bzzzzzt shaved all my hair off.
It happens every year and so far, it’s always grown back.
Plus showering is a snap!
The downside is sometimes I get called “sir” which never happens when I have hair. I occasionally entertain the idea of going nutty and screaming “It’s Ma’am! Ma’am!” over and over again.
She might be one year older, but Daisy is still full of piss and vinegar.
She still plays fetch. And I still have to put my living room trash basket on top of the stove at night to keep her from dumping the contents all over the house while I’m sleeping.
One thing is certain, Daisy is very happy at Casa Dianny. And she’s made me pretty happy as well.
So happy One Year Adopt-a-versary, Daisy!
Here’s to many more!
