Stewie the Cat – Purina Cat Chow Contest

Stewie the Cat

Purina Cat Chow Real Stories Project:

Around six months ago, we rescued two cats. We found one a great, relaxed home and Stewie became our super house cat. He’s got the best personality. He is not like the stereotypical stand-offish feline at all. He comes to the door much like a dog would to greet and investigate any visitors, comes when you call him and has taken on the role of ninja guard cat.

He is great with the kids and tolerates just about anything. He is smooshed, stretched and over-cuddled daily and loves every minute of it. When we leave for longer than a couple hours at a time he is completely disgusted with us upon our return. He will stay in the same room with us, but refuses to look at us. He will ‘meow’ into the empty space, as if to explain his anger. Then, after about an hour of that, he can bring himself to face us again… although I sometimes think he believes he has a middle finger.

The other day, I messed up his whole world by putting an ice cube in his water dish. He sat and stared at it for a solid ten minutes before having the courage to spastic-ally attack it with his paw. He made a huge mess but it was hysterical. Next time I promise to catch it on video!

What an adorable little fur-baby! I had to laugh at that picture too; it really DOES look like he's flippin' the bird so to speak. LOL
