I <3 my cat

Cosmo, my cat, has been very different the last few months. She still tends to be a little evil to people she doesn't know, but overall she's very much a changed cat.

She's lost a lot of weight because of the diet food that Cath scored for me. You can see it when you pet her or pick her up. She's not a tubby bitch anymore. She's going back to regular wet food today, but I've got plenty of the dry food left. Of course, it's a lot easier to monitor her food intake when she's the only cat.

Even more fun, she has really become more active lately. She gets these nutty streaks now and then that are hilarious. She actually fought the end of the couch the other day, which was strange, but entertaining. She still sleeps most of the day, like any cat, but she has her big active spurts.

She also seems to be sleeping on the bed with me more than she used to. I'm not sure I can explain that. A lot of her good nature kind of disappeared when we got Luna, so I guess it makes sense that much of it is coming back now that Luna has passed. She follows me around, greets me at the door and generally likes to hang out, which is what you want in a cat, right? Yesterday, she even crawled on to Diana's lap, which is very unusual.

Cosmo will be 11 this winter, which means she's been with me nearly a third of my life. How weird is that? She's still very healthy, and active, and isn't destructive. She sheds like crazy, but that's about the only thing I can complain about.

I do miss Luna, and I hate that I replay her last hour in my head all of the time. Still, there's a good chance that Cosmo is going to have two kitten brothers and a bitchy little sister before too long. We'll see how that goes... ;)

When Cosmo sleeps on your bed, she doesn't make her way up around by your neck by any chance, does she? ;)
