I have a roommate of sorts. Mind you she weighs less then 3 kg and is covered in fur but company she is. The Baroness, had the name Poppy at the SPCA, that did not stick with me. Something more regal was required. Something reflective of the cat human power dynamic. So she became The Baroness.
Well her full and proper name and title is Lady Baroness von Soft Paws of Gallifrey.
The Baroness introduced herself to me at the shelter looking me in the eyes with her huge amber ones and reaching out and touching my beard. You do not say no to a cat with a pink nose a sad face and curious paw. I have seldom said no to her since.
