Throwback Thursday: I Hope to Own a Cat

Since Operating Own a Cat is underway, I figured it'd be good to revisit this post. It's way old, as you can tell by the super bad drawings, instead of the regular bad drawings. Enjoy!

So, I’m sure it’s no surprise to you that I want a cat. My sister has two kitties, and I love them even when they’re total fucking bitches. However, I’m sure some of you are wondering why I don’t currently have one, especially because I work in a city that is filled with feral cats and honestly with a little tuna I think I could convince one to get in my car. Yeah, they’re all pretty whorey with their kitty STDs, but that doesn’t mean they don’t deserve love. 

No one teaches cats Stranger Danger.
Also, you some of you guys offered up your own cats to me on twitter, which is awesome. But also makes me wonder why you want to get rid of these little balls of fluff. Are they secretly criminal masterminds? No, right?

Anyway, for now I just read kitty blogs and keep hoping. Here  are some reasons why I don’t have a cat yet:

My Lease Says "No Pets" 

I plan on moving out when my lease is up, so that might take care of that one.

I know I know, cats are cheap. Cheaper than dogs and babies for sure. But there are still some kitty expenses:
  • Monthly rent with pets can go up 30-50 bucks in this area
  • Kitty food
  • Kitty litter
  • Adorable kitty toys
  • Vet bills when kitty chooses to ignore kitty toys for household products

Anyhoo, money is tight, and a cat is a commitment. You cant just feed them ramen noodles, right? 

Oh yeah, I may be slightly allergic to cats. I didn’t have one growing up, and a few years ago I got my sister cats for her birthday. Now after I hang out with them/force them to cuddle with me, my eyes itch a lot.  And I feel kinda crappy when I go home, but not sure if that is just kitty allergies or going home. 

So yeah. No kitty for Gia yet. 

But once I move out, somehow manage to make more money, and decide “fuck allergies,” I’m totally gonna steal me a kitty. 


  1. I feel your past self's catless pain. And I especially love the kitty x-ray.

  2. Go! Adopt! Get your cat loving ass in gear before more cats are killed at the humane society.
