OREO All my life I wanted a cat. I wanted someone to be as moodswingy as me, and someone who will just listen to me when I rant about school. I just wanted a cat so much. It was a few nights after Ondoy when my sister spotted this little kitten about to get eaten by a local Rottweiler on his daily walk. My sister knew how much I wanted a cat, and decided to save the little kitten’s life and at same time make a little girl’s birthday wish come true. The rest is all history. I’ve been with Oreo for about a year now, and she has been the sweetest everrr “Some people will think cats aren’t as lovable as dogs, but cat owners will tell you these mysterious animals can be sweet and playful.” –Cats and Kittens
