Hi from ChiTown

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 
Greetings from Printer's Row in Chicago. I'm Emily, and my 4 footed cantankerous counterpart is Gatomon. Before I got a real job, and lived in a less desireable part of town, Gatomon was the stray that terrorized my trash cans. But, when I needed to talk or just chill, he would sit patiently on the lid of a can and listen and just give me this little look of his So, he started getting fed real food and had a place to sleep.

Then, I found a good paying job, and got a nice loft just a little ways from downtown, and it just didn't seem right to leave him there to spend his days rummaging in garbage, so...he came with me. Now, he lives only indoors, loves the view from up here, has a window shelf so he can watch the world from his 5th floor studio and be king of his world. He's a cranky, demanding old orange alleycat that the vet guesses is around 6 or 7 years old. He's got a nicked ear, a short tail and the vet had to take out 2 of his teeth, but he's my bestest buddy

Thank you everybody, everyone here is so nice

Poor Gatomon hated the snow. He's indoors, but there's this ledge outside his window and the snow actually piled up on it so high that he had to stand up and look over it to see outside. And he likes to be comfy when he's checking out his Kingdom, and standing wasn't cutting it for him

I'm not from Chicago, but I'm only a couple hours NW! Welcome to the site! Gatomon sounds just perfect. He must be so happy to have a warm place to sleep
