I picked up a bag of senior cat food the other day. “For cats 11+ years” it read. I almost cried.
Brody will be 13 years old this year, and I’ve finally given into the fact that our buddy is an old man. But just because he’s mature in age doesn’t mean he isn’t still full of life. In fact, after 13 years on this planet, Brody is ready for his first-ever girlfriend! Nothing serious, of course. Just a companion who won’t bite is tail or ride him around the living room like his sister does.
Being the indoor kitty that he is, however, Brody’s best bet was to set up a Tinder account (or, rather, a Tigger account). Thankfully, this proud cat mamma had an abundance of handsome pics, so the Tinder profile came together in a flash. The hardest part was deciding which flattering photo to display, but we chose well in the end:
Smooth. Very smooth indeed.
Since this is probably the first cat Tinder profile you’ve seen, here is a breakdown of the information provided:
Brody, 13: Name and age of user in human years.
CAT YRS 68: Brody is 68 in cat years.
S/N: Spayed or Neutered.
House Icon: Represents an indoor kitty.
Since Brody is a modest lad, he excluded any descriptors about his physique in the “About” section, even though he is a big, strong, healthy boy. I’m not sure if the mouse comment was such a good idea, but he insisted.
Sorry to all the kitty ladies out there who are further than 100 feet away. Brody is only interested in local gals. (He has no interest in long-distance relationships being 68 and all.) Preferable meeting spots would include:
- the front porch
- the back deck
- the north bay window
We’re all crossing our fingers that this Tinder profile entices a sweet, loving (and preferably spayed) she-cat who will visit his favorite windows on a daily basis. (My personal wish is that she is also a mouser.)
In the meantime, Brody will continue to sunbathe and scan the yard for prospective companions. And think sexy thoughts.
Baby Girl, meanwhile, is NOT ready for a Tigger account. She thinks all boys are stupid. (Her last relationship with the neighborhood tabby has left her bitter).
