Sweet sweet Mummy’s girl
Of all things, I am named after a dog. Can you imagine the indignity? Daddy named me after a dog which he thinks has a cute butt. And since I have a cute butt, he said my name should be Bon Bon.
Mummy says I am the sweetest cat ever (and I am not disagreeing with her you know) and do you know that “bon bons” is “sweets” in French?? Now I think the name suits me just fine.
I am the 3rd cat adopted into the household. Mummy and Daddy have always wanted a British Short Hair and my Daddy is in love with the grey classic tabby. But they could never bring themselves to buying one ‘cos they think giving a stray a home is better than buying. But I think they are just cheapskates. Cheapskates. Hehe…
They saw me in a pet shop for sale and somehow, the shop lady gave me to them for free. I really mean for free. She said Daddy was the only one I responded to although lots of people have come to view me but I was too “dau” for them. You know, Daddy cheated. I tell you. He did not wipe his fingers after his chicken rice lunch and I only responded to him because of that delicious smell coming from that finger poking into my cage.
Kim Kim and Xin Xin did not like me at all when I was introduced to them, especially Xin Xin. She didn’t like me taking all of Mummy and Daddy’s attention away. I mean I can’t help it if I am just too cute to resist, right? But I have been getting along well with them these past 3 ½ years, although they will hit me sometimes. I guess it’s just old age (Kim Kim) and PMS (Xin Xin). But please don’t tell them I badmouth them, ok?
