Princess Batman update.

Princess Batman

So, it’s working out with the cat. While she was super-grumpy at the start and had terrible bathroom manners, time in the house is gentling her and I am so glad that none of you are around to hear me squeal encouragingly in a disgusting talking-to-a-baby voice, “Who covered her poops? Who covered her poooooops?? Good Princess. Good Princess Batman.”

Why Princess Batman? The question is, “Why not Princess Batman?” I only pray that she never gets lost, because I will look like a lunatic calling for her. (I call her P.B., but Lloyd insists on her full title.)

Speaking of all of this, Lloyd loves her.

This was at the start of his cold.

In fact, from the first night I brought her home and through all the days when I was still on the fence, you could see his determination to love this awful cat. I think he may have missed the cats more than I have. (I was only ever in ‘grieve’ mode, not ‘get another cat’ mode.) Despite the fact that she has made a few messes.

During her 'jailed in the bathroom' phase. She learned to cover her poops, yes she did.

She was scared when she knocked it over.  Big, big tail.

She still likes to attack him, but it’s become more playful as she realizes that we are not rivals for her food or shelter. After my family left we let her go upstairs (Rachel is allergic to cats) and as she thundered down the stairs Lloyd smiled and said (not looking up from the computer), “That’s what I’ve missed.”

She was trying to eat his feet.

You’re welcome, Lloyd.

    These are all lies. I don’t even like cats.

    Yay for Princess Batman!
    I missed you having a cat. All seems right with the world again.

    I don’t see Lloyd’s feet in the last picture. Is he sitting in the Lotus Position at the computer? Is that how you’re supposed to sit while doing Shaolin programming?

    Hi, P.B. You’ve got fantastic owners. They’ll take good care of you, so take good care of them.

    Lloyd & Princess Batman look like they were made for each other in that nap picture! Yup, I think she has found her home! And Yay for you two for loving the unloveable. PB will be forever grateful & will become one of the best cats you’ve ever had. (I speak from experience)

    Clearly, I’m emotionally fragile right now, because this post made me get all teary-eyed.


    Happy New Life Princess Batman. Happy new life. 😀
