Meet Ewok


I never realized how much joy you could get out of having a pet until I had my own. Ewok doesn’t expect much from me, some food and the occasional cuddle, that I can handle. As far as she is concerned the world consists of our small condo and the hallway and there are only about ten people in the world.

Ewok is our silver persian. She’s almost 4 years old. We got her from a pet store. I know, I know, bad. I’m all for adopting and rescuing sheltered animals. My first pets were adopted from a local animal rescue program. With Ewok, it was love at first sight. I couldn’t help myself. I was in the pet store with my now-husband to buy crickets to feed the frogs he was keeping at the summer camp we were working at. That was the first time I saw her. She was just so cute, all scruffy, with her smooshed face. She was standing on her hind legs batting away some big bully-cat she shared her cage with. She looked just like an Ewok from Star Wars. Can’t you just picture her with a hood and cape? haha.

Anyway, we had just moved in together and agreed no pets. I left the store near tears. I tried to forget about her, but the hubby brought her up the next day. Apparently he had fallen in love too. So back we went to get our little Ewok.

We hardly ever call her Ewok. She is more affectionately known as Smooshy or Cute-ums. She’s a sweet, quirky kitty who just likes to be around you. She’s pretty clumsy for a cat and you also know she’s coming because she snorts when she breathes with her little smooshed nose. It’s all part of her charm.
