So it was my birthday yesterday (holla), and I was out with my fam and bf for dinner (conveyor belt sushi might I add)(it’s like a luggage return at an airport, except it’s food and you’re happy to be there). Somewhere in all our conversation we mentioned my cat, Keke (also known as Keek, Keeks, Keeker, Loaf of cat, Keke cat, Keekers, Rug of love- literally anything will do)(ohmygod, I almost forgot to mention her ACTUAL name is Maddy, Keke is just a nickname, Maddison when my mom’s mad at her, okay continue), and my boyfriend said something along the lines of, “But it’s not Keke’s birthday, or maybe it is” and then I was SHOOK. When the hell is my cat’s birthday? Is it on mine? Is it the day after mine (aka today)? Is it sometime this month? SOS.
For some background info, my cat is old (
the end). We got her when she was already 6, and we’ve had her for about 6-7 years (is it bad we don’t remember exactly when we got her?)(honestly, she just popped up in our lives and can’t find a way out)(gotta love cats, am I right?). We’ve never known Keek’s backstory, but we have made up quite a few. One of the first ones was that she came from England, where she got her prissy side (and her Miss Priss nickname) from so many tea parties in so little time. Sometimes my mom thinks Keek has had kids of her own and that she was a good mom (but I think that’s just her reflecting herself onto Keeks). Sometimes I think of Keke in the slums somewhere and being a little cat gangster in her young days, because back then she could take anything down. Now, she’s the chilliest cat of all time- bless old age. Plus, we’re best friends (said every cat owner ever for some reassurance), we actually are though! She only likes to play with me and she puts up with a lot from me (aha I bet none of you are shocked), that she wouldn’t put up with for just anyone.
Like I said, she puts up with a lot.
Anyways, her birthday has always been a mystery. She seems the happiest during December (she adores Christmas trees), so we always assumed that was her birth month, but who the heck knows! I don’t think we ever will know for sure, and she’s a pretty humble cat so she doesn’t care (or she doesn’t know what a birthday is, same thing- I’m going with humble). Besides, everyday is Keke day, that cat is so damn loved.
Speaking of mysteries, I’m about to head out to go to an escape room with some friends as a bday celebration. I’s my first escape room so I have no idea what to expect aha- wish me luck! Have any of you been to an escape room before? Also, do any of you know when my cat’s birthday is? Please give me a date in the comments aha, it would make my day.
