Introducing... Leo!

It's no secret around here that I've been dreaming of getting my own cat. Even if you are brand spanking new here the first word in my blog title is "Cats." And if you aren't new, I've only mentioned it about a thousand times that I really really really wanted my own little kitten. Well, back in November I was finally in a place to get one, and Sam agreed that I could. So off to the shelter I went!

When I saw Leo's sweet face and watched him launch himself off the table to attack a picture hanging on the wall, I knew he was mine. Well, in hindsight that incident, and the way he climbed on top of my head and started chewing on my hair, should have been an indicator that he was going to give me a run for my money. But seriously... that face!

Since getting him in November he's become the best little buddy ever. He greets me at the door when I get home and immediately demands a cuddle sesh, he cries and cries when I leave, he even brings me his toys and drops them in the shower while I'm bathing. What more could I ask for?! But obviously, it's not all sunshine and roses. Actually he's kind of a demon. He LOVES to knock things over. "Oh, is that a glass of water there? Let me push that onto the floor for you." "You didn't want to keep your deodorant, did you? Because I knocked it into the trashcan" "You're looking for your favorite necklace? I believe I batted that under the fridge with all my other toys." But hey, everyone has their flaws!

Besides destroying everything, Leo loves to play with ice cubes and these crinkly plastic balls I got at PetCo, he loves to snuggle with me and always sleeps by my feet at night, he helps with all household tasks- especially sweeping and making the bed, and he makes me smile every single day. Sam is still learning to love him, but I can't imagine my life without him.

What are your pet's names? What do they do that drives you nuts?
