Everyone loves Edie. She is super friendly, spunky and kind of acts like a dog. Edie is Marlon's cat. Every night when Marlon gets home, she waits for him to put the blanket in his lap so she can hop up and get petted. I can't believe he trained her to wait for the blanket. I call Marlon the cat whisper. When we had our home study, I swear she knew she was supposed to be extra cute. She sat in Marlon's lap with her little paws crossed and made her most adorable face hamming it up for the social worker. Edie loves to chase paper balls and will play fetch with you. She also does this funny air dig thing when she wants something. It cracks me up every time.
Since pretty much from the beginning, Marlon and I have had a cat. Our first cat was Filthy. I found him on my high school graduation day, he rolled out of an exhaust pipe of a truck and my girlfriends and I were in the car behind. Being teenage girls, we pulled over and rescued the kitten. He was covered in dirt and fleas and that's how he got his name. Marlon cleaned him up and we took him to a raging party that night. He ended up riding on some punk rocker's shoulder all night! Oh the stories we have with Filthy! Another time. In his mature years, we called him Fil. Filthy left us three years ago for kitty heaven. He was the coolest cat and we still miss him so much.
