So as many of you know I just moved to a house and can now have pets! So I took back the cats my parents bought my sister and I when I was in high school. They’re named Ami (above) and Rini (below). And if a few anime fans are scratching their heads right now at the familiarity of those names, the answer is yes…yes I did name the cats after anime characters. Can anyone guess which series? Anyway these little cuties are the reason I have absolutely no figures on display right now, and probably won’t have any on display until next fall. If you’re wondering what Ami is doing, it was actually just a big yawn I caught at just the right moment.
Amy is our pretty lady, she is the type of cat that walks around with a lot of dignity and poise, but she is very lovey dovey and not stuck up. She doesn’t fall for the old laser pointer trick but she likes feathery toys. She is also very territorial and is the alpha cat of the set. This cat is the one that’s considered mine, the other one takes more to my sister. We actually temporarily lost Ami within the first week of having her, the darn thing found a way into the ceiling and went exploring. This one is the “curious cat”.
And Rini has far too many toes, she is triple pawed, so she sort of has a makeshift thumb. Take that evolution! Cats are catching up to humans! This one can scoop things up, it’s funny to see her pick up marbles. Ever question my sanity over the amount of money I spend on anime and manga? This cat cost my family about what my collection of manga is valued at. That’s right it’s a $5,000 cat. I bet you’ve never seen a $5,000 cat before! She is technically our most valuable possession. Why is a tubby cat with too many toes worth so much? She likes to eat things she shouldn’t, and my parents paid for two $2500 surgeries to save her life. The darn thing still hasn’t learned either. She has already eaten my tank top, a sweatshirt, a window shade, and who knows what else. Well she didn’t eat the whole thing but she likes to cut the strings on all these items with her teeth. This one is the “sacredy cat” and is constantly running from every sound. Remember how I lost Ami in the ceiling? I lost this one for a whole day, turns out she was hiding in a closed drawer in the chest. She got into the closed drawer from the open one above it.
I wouldn’t say I’m a cat person, I’d say I’m a fan of any pet that has a good personality. I absolutely love dogs too. But I hate all pets that are stuck up. I have no idea what I’ll do if I ever get a pet where the only time they want anything to do with me is when I feed them.
Anyone guess the anime they’re named after?
