ivan and i got anakin from petsmart (they bring different spca pets there each month) on january 23 2007. i had always been more of a dog person since i had a rottweiler growing up. however, living in an apartment and spending a lot of time at school i didn't think a dog was a good idea for us...and there was no way i could talk ivan into one, haha.
my friend and i liked to take the bus up to ancaster and go to winners and petsmart instead of studying or going to class...oops, we were bad.
anakin was very shy when we brought him home and he hid under the couch for hours! we finally coaxed him out with a tempting string toy and then he started to get a bit more comfortable.
- he's still a bit shy and he runs and hides when too many people come over or when we vacuum...or just if something spooks him.
- he is very good at answering to his name with a funny half meow and usually comes when he's called
- he doesn't like to be picked up but loves to snuggle if you're sitting on the couch or computer chair.
- he gets mad if i close the bathroom door. he stands outside demanding to be let in
- his nicknames are: dubby, dub, anakin bear, and a few more variations of those, haha.
we love anakin so much! happy birthday dubby!
anakin likes cpks :)
Awww I love Anakin! Why do you call him Dub/Dubby?ReplyDelete
We call our cats the most ridiculous things. Scarlett has somehow evolved into Bean/Beanio, and most recently we have been calling Jasper "Captain Peepers" "Peeps McGee" or basically anything with the word peeps in it.
Being a kitty mom is funny.
PS. I've never played any other Katamari game, but Katamari Forever is soooo fun! You should at least rent it for a week or something. Roll your little heart out!
Anakin is very cute!!! He looks kind of like my kitty, Cyd (there's a pic on my blog). We also got Cyd from Petsmart, during an adoption event!ReplyDelete
Cats are awesome!
aww happy birthday anakin!! such cute pics :) i like him in the tshirt :)ReplyDelete
Lovvveee baby cat! I love my little boycat Tom. He's a sweetie. Wish they could be friends!ReplyDelete
You should post Farva's story too. I loved Anakin's!ReplyDelete
One of our cats is named Molly and her nicknames are pretty random, too...Beans, Snake, Mollybeans, Beauty Queen...I'm sure she has an identity crisis.ReplyDelete
i had two cats back at home but since i've moved out i've been thinking of adopting one! happy birthday to anakin : )ReplyDelete
Such a cute cat :) Hope he had a great birthday, the picture of him in the yarn is amazing!ReplyDelete

Awwww. You're making me want a cat.ReplyDelete
Aww what a cutie!! I really want to go to Petsmart now and buy my dog a bunch of things, haha! Nelson is a pretty funny name for a cat, you did a great job on the name change. :) Happy (belated) birthday Anakin!!ReplyDelete
Adorable cat story! Our kitty hides when too many people come over too. Some people doubt that she even exists. Happy birthday Anakin!ReplyDelete
