When I was a little girl, my mom got me the best birthday present ever: a newborn long-haired Persian kitten. Although my parents referred to her as “The Cat from Hell” since she gave us and our entire neighborhood ringworm- to the point that my dad and I got our rashes photographed for medical books- on top of being deaf, having an over-production of eye gunk in her 2 different colored eyes, chronically peeing on my mom’s new carpet, and having ear mites, I loved that cat to pieces. So much so that I still associate the entire Mariah Carey Christmas album (“Miss You Most at Christmastime”, “Christmas (Baby Please Come Home),” “All I Want For Christmas Is You”, etc) and “Always” by Bon Jovi with crying in my room in hopes that she would return after she ran away. She never did return, so this post is dedicated to my “special” cat, Natasha.
