As a child of the eighties, I've been a huge fan of many movies that came out in that decade. Back to the Future? LOVE that trilogy. Made my husband watch them. Star Wars? Many of you know by now how I feel about that space-themed fairy tale.
I also love The Princess Bride. Flight of the Navigator. Soooo many other films I could name - but when I met my new kitty, we came up with her name based 90% on the way characters from the movie WILLOW address the titular character.
We welcomed our precious new kitty to the family earlier this summer, Willow the Tabby. Even as I type this, she's on my desk, between me and the keyboard, purring at me. She's super affectionate. She comes when called. She's eight months old now and already happily a house cat who (occasionally) explores the great outdoors. The family that fostered her informed me that sweet Willow was found on the side of the road, in a duffle bag full of her brothers and sisters. :-(
Who. Does. That?!
In case you're wondering, Izzie the Aussie and Willow the Tabby are getting along fairly well, too. The first couple of days were rough, but now they both run to the door when I come home, demanding love. And they both cuddle up next to me when I'm reading. So life with pets is absolutely wonderful.
I plan to put Willow in a story soon. How do you feel about pets in stories? Ambivalent? Annoyed? Or do you find them adorable?
