so to celebrate let's talk about my favourite weirdo cat, Toulouse Lautrec.
I picked up Toulouse after a day of shopping with friends and scrolling through Kijiji ads over baklava and coffees. I called the lady who was giving him away and we drove over to a house in St James which was cluttered full of stuff and full of cats. She put Toulouse on my shoulder and he crawled behind my hair and started licking my neck and I fell in love.
He was just a little guy, then -probably too young to actually be separated from his mum, now that I think about it- and attached himself to me immediately.
Whenever I come home he runs to the door to meet me. When I'm in bed he insists on crawling on the pillows above my head and keeping me warm by being a furry hat.
He loves to knead my neck and lick my hair and sit in weird poses and lives for belly rubs.
In fact, if you start to pet him within a few seconds he'll be on his back with his tummy exposed, looking at you with an expectant look that says
"please please me"
which everyone does, because you can't say no to that face.

then proceeded to roll around some more
chase his toy under the couch
pop a sick lean on the wall
and fall asleep on the ottoman.
All in the span of a single Doctor Who episode.
Toulouse is livin' the life.
- by adminis younger than me. he's only three months old.
we haven't been together very long. only a month and half since he came into my life.
he shows affection is ways I'm not used to.
he climbs on me and sucks on my hair and kneads my neck.
when I sit on the couch and type on the laptop (like I'm doing now)
he climbs up my chest and hangs over my shoulder
giving me a huge furry hug.
he likes everyone and everyone likes him
just like one of the other important men that I live with
(no, not Ford, silly. Tyrone!)
I'm lucky to have all of them.
they all make me happy all of the time.
but this little sweetheart holds a special place in my heart
even if he does break into my purse and carry tampons around the apartment in his mouth.
you've gotta take the good with the bad, right?
