Da Kitties![change | change source]

Picture of my cat Aria
This is Aria
Fun facts about Aria:

1. She had her canines surgically removed when she was 2

2. She follows commands and walks on a leash.

3. She plays fetch and hide 'n seek.

4. She loves sleeping on my stomach and if I move, she literally screams at me (even if I am sleeping).

5. She has to be at my side at all times.

6. She always has 2 paws on me and her tail is wrapped around my arm (hence her nickname of 'Monkey Tail').

7. She is protective of me and my room and will not let my roommates cat near me and she will attack him.

8. She actually says the word "No" especially at bath time (both my roommate and my landlord have verified this).

9. She likes to fart on me for some oddball reason.

10. She has what I call her happy purr. It is a mix of her yawning., meowing, sighing, and purring loud all at the same time. Typically after she does this, she puts her head in my armpit and starts snoring (and flatulates a lot).
