UPDATE: In June 2015, Neo passed away. He got run over…we don’t really know what happened other than it was instant. A kind soul saw him on the pavement near our house and knocked on the door to ask if we have a black and white cat. We looked everywhere in the house/garden for Neo but my mum went to see if it was him and it was. That was probably the worst day of my life. I grew up with Neo. We had him for 10 years and the fact that he was just GONE like that was horrible. Luckily he passed away during Ramadan so that made it easier to deal with the loss. I know he is happy where he is…eating food and being a lazy lump and I will see him again one day.
Neo means ‘gift’ in Swahili and is also the guy from The Matrix.
Neo is my fat cat.
I love my fat cat Neo. he’s 6years old that is 40 human years- middle aged. haha.
He’s rather insane…they say pets reflect their owner’s characteristics but well I’m not fat (I’m really not) but my dad is…
Neo is black and white and from Essex.
Favourite hobbies of his: sleeping, eating, biting, chasing imaginary things, playing with his girlfriends ( plural i know…what a PLAYER!), annoying everyone, meowing, guarding his territory, staring into space, purring, scavenging, partying etc
Neo is a Don…and he knows it. he is the King of the Castle. he knows this too.
some quotes on cats because I’m THAT obsessed (and cool):
“The cat could very well be man’s best friend but would never stoop to admitting it.” Doug Larson
“As every cat owner knows, nobody owns a cat.” Ellen Perry Berkeley
“Cats can work out mathematically the exact place to sit that will cause most inconvenience.” Pam Brown
“I wish I could write as mysterious as a cat.” Edgar Allan Poe
“Cats seem to go on the principle that it never does any harm to ask for what you want.” Joseph Wood Krutch
Now of course you are wondering what does this Neo look like? well I’d just like to explain that we did not make him obese or ‘overweight’…he eats a lot and he goes next door and steals the cat’s food despite them installing a magnetic cat flap…he has his ways. he also happens to sleep on their bed…i did say he is The King of the Castle- he knows and he makes a point that EVERYONE ELSE SHOULD KNOW IT TO.
So there you have my fat cutie Neo.
He likes all the attention.
You’ll hear more about him because I’ll keep you (?) updated on his gallivanting etc.
But this is Neo’s life: Partying all night and sleeping all day. =)
