You know, I looked at this post and I was stumped. I flipped through a good part of my pictures and there was nothing.
But thinking about unique, I stepped back and thought about the unique experiences in my life and here are a few:
Let me give a little cut here and say that KII in the middle is a fairly new fellow WordPress blogger, who goes by the name of Jelliefishie who also happens to one of my camp roommates in Taiwan back i n 2009. So stop by her site and show her some love. She actually marks a very unique experience of making good friends in camp and staying good friends for years afterwards. Sometimes I can’t believe that this June we would have been friends for almost 6 years. Anyways, she’s awesome and you’ll see for yourself when you head over 🙂
So now, Jelliefishie is quite the unique friendship story in my book. But, before I could figure out how to do this challenge, I went to my boyfriend and asked him what was unique to him and without any thought, he answered, “Flea!” Flea is my baby cat and she definitely is unique, from the first moment we got her till now that she’s almost 3 years old.
This is what she looked like when we bought her. Well, this was probably a week or two after.
Flea was shy and shaking in the corner when we saw her at the pet shop. We hadn’t expected to go get a kitten so soon, especially since I had just lost my cat just a few months before. She just looked so adorable. The first night we brought her home, after we introduced her to her food, water and litter box location, she started exploring my stairs and next thing you know, PLOP! she lost her balance and fell onto the first floor and thank goodness, landed on her feet. Of course, I yelled and panicked and my boyfriend went downstairs and picked her up and soothed her little scared heart beating at 100 mph. Let me tell you, that grabbed my heart because that night, I woke up startled by a mini furball sleeping next to me imitating me with her little head on the pillow and the rest of her body under the covers. I tell you, it is the most adorable thing EVER!
Kittens are adorable and to those that don’t like cats, I’m telling you why Flea is unique and not just by her crazy adorable appearance and her little tiny runt-like body when she was a baby. To me, she was like a hybrid of a cat and a dog. Some days, I think she thinks she’s a dog. I have never had a cat who would just want attention all the time and ask for it. You call her name and she’ll come running to us. She’ll even drop by all the time to play.
She may be a very normal brown tabby to others but we find the treasures in the simplest things and for us, our most unique ongoing experience is this playful, attention craving, curious and as you can see, music-loving baby cat.
What are your unique experiences? I’d love to hear about it 🙂
