|A Bit of History
Our cat’s full name is Goat Cheese Lentils. We named her after a dish we had many years ago in London (St. John). We got this Calico at a pet shelter in city of Dublin 6 months after purchasing our home in Alameda. Her pet shelter name was “Autumn” and she was 2 years old when we adopted her. We hated her given name. Given the fact that she had a blend of different colors and a white chest — Goat Cheese Lentils seemed like the perfect fit.It is hard to believe she is 7 years now. Truly, it took me a full year to like her. As Lentils is our first cat, we had no idea that cats had jumping abilities. We were impressed when we found her above the refrigerator one day munching away on the supply of cat food.Like/Dislikes/Characteristics
She talks a lot. She responds well to food. She isn’t the most intelligent animal but — is trainable. This means that with the right motivator (food) we are able to train her to sit, shake, and lay down. She enjoys sitting in boxes, on mail, plastic bags, and on warm thighs. She loves to hear her name and when in the right mood – trots over when you acknowledge her in a high pitched voice.The sun is her friend. Purchasing a tinker free automatic feeder has created quality of life for all. Her biggest achievement to date is using the human bathroom -although we decided that she’s better off using the the cat litter box.
Lentils knows her worth. She is a constant reminder that if you expect to be loved you will be loved. Love you Lentils.
