One of the best parts of living with my parents for 10 weeks was getting to spend time with their kitties. We always had cats growing up and I always loved their endearing aloofness mixed with insistent affection. Steve, however, hates cats so having a kitty for a pet now is not an option. (Not that Rachel hasn't lobbied for one on many occasions!)
My parents have two black and white kitties, Botas and Bonita. They acquired these cats years ago, when they lived in New Mexico (which is why the cats have Spanish names - Botas means "boots" and Bonita means "beautiful").
Botas is the lazy lover cat. She spends nearly all her time sleeping.
