Hillbilly Cat

Okay, I just got through ranting about people posting photos of their cats. Hypocrisy is a sign of character.

He's not my cat anyway. He's my girlfriend's cat. His name is Keliki. She found him on a golf course in Jakarta when she was teaching there a few years ago. She shipped him back to Seattle just before she left Jakarta. He spent two nights in a box on the plane and a night in Amsterdam at a pet hotel doing god knows what before I picked him up at the airport. We bonded. Though after two nights in a box, I suppose he would have bonded with a cantaloupe. Not that I look like a cantaloupe. I've never really thought about what kind of vegetable I resemble. I guess I'll find that out later in life. Anyway, I digress.

Keliki is a pretty cool cat. He is also very fat. I call him Bubba because of he has a beer belly and likes to watch football. He is a big Seahawks fan and really thinks Matt Hasselback is a great quarterback. Though he thinks they really need to beef up that offensive line and cut down on the sacks.

Isn't it amazing what we can project on pets?

But I suppose that doesn't mean anything to you.
