I have one true friend and she stays close to me all the time. Her name is Chicky and she is one spoiled kitty. Chicky has been with me for 10 years now. My dad gave her to me as a birthday gift when he saw how I looked at her at the pet shop. Like the romance novels that I write, it was like love at first sight. She was just a small Japanese Bobtail back then, with white fur and a pink nose. As a kid, I have always loved Hello Kitty and at that time inside the pet shop, it was like I saw Hello Kitty come to life. The pet shop owner said that I could touch her if I wanted to and I eagerly nodded my head, with pigtail curls and all. When I touched her, I instantly knew we were meant to be together forever. The owner asked if I wanted to take the kitten home with me but I knew we could not afford it so I just smiled and gave her back to the owner. Leaving the pet store was probably one of the hardest things I have ever done in my life as I gave one last longing look at the cutest kitten that I have ever seen. I wanted to have that kitty but I did not know how I could come up with the money to be able to buy her from the pet shop. A few weeks later, it was my birthday and lo and behold, my dad gave me the best gift ever – the small little Japanese Bobtail kitty from the pet shop! I named her Chicky and we were inseparable since then. Although she is no longer a small kitty now, she is still the same Japanese Bobtail that I fell in love with at first sight.
