Animal Family - Brian
A little over 6 months ago, I moved back into my parents house (I was graduating at that time (I studied Illustration at the HKU - a dutch art academy) and had a hard time focussing on my project at my room in Utrecht). My parents live in a farmhouse in a polder called Beemster, a World Heritage. It's very quiet and peaceful and we have a lot of animals (eventhough they are not actually farmers, we don't have not thát much animals, plus we actually love them) and those animals are a huge part of my life, so it seemed strange I hadn't really blogged about them before! So today I'm going to start a series of posts about my animals, starting with the latest addition to our family:
♥ Brian! ♥
We adopted Brian on the 5th of july of this year. One of my facebookfriends posted on her wall that she knew this cat who's owner had died and needed a home or he would be taken to an animal shelter. This is very stressful for a cat so she hoped to find him a new home though facebook. I commented and not much later my mom and I went on a road trip to Rotterdam to get our new animal friend! We named him after my facebookfriend's boyfriend, Brian. Brian was about 5 years old and had never been outside and never had any cat-friends so we were very excited to give him all this in our home.
But, we didn't realize Brian was this out-of-his-mind crazy, we can't help but think he is very traumatized by something. He has a very weird crack in his skull, he sticks out his tongue, he falls of of everything, walks like a pirate and it took him 5 months to figure out the cat-door. Also; Brian can not get along with the other cats, at all, but he does love me. A lot. No but really, he loves me A LOT. He sleeps on my stomach under the covers every night, follows me around all day, won't eat unless I give it to him, won't go outside unless I open the door, brings me dead mice as presents etc. He is one of the silliest cats I have ever met but I love him to death.
Do any of you have a catfriend as crazy as Brian?
