It is absolutely imperative, in my opinion, that in order to have a happy and healthy home, you need to share it with someone you love – family, friends, or furry folk. In my case, I share my home with Cassi. She’s my trailer mate. More of a roommate, actually because she makes sure she is always in the same room as me, and usually directly in the way. But I love her and she loves me. And she helps make my trailer a home.
I’m like my dad and have a million nick-names for the people and pets close to me. My dad rarely called me Rebecca. He usually called me Hunka-de-Munka, Maudie, Nicky and Nicky-Nock-Nocky.
I only call Cassi “Cassi” when I want her to come. Otherwise it’s:
Sweet Potato Princess
I also speak to her in precisely the same voice that I speak to babies. Not sure if it’s because I view Cassi as my baby, or I view children as pets.
My Cassi turned 10 this week. In September she will have been with me for 10 years. And I’m hoping to get another 10 years out of her. We’ll see….
