This little cutie showed up at Harley’s door at 1:30 AM the other morning, crying to be let inside. Being his Mother’s son, he went out and bought food and supplies and fell in love with her. Unfortunately his apartment complex does not allow pets and she has to go.
Enter Mom. This was the exchange on Facebook:
H, in reply to another commenter: and no my apartments do not allow pets. I am going to talk to the apartment manager and see if I can keep her until I find a good home. But she loves me so much it’s hard to give her away.
Me: Ya know, your Mom is currently cat-less…What’s the kitty’s name?
H: We call her “Revy”. It’s a name from a show Brittin [his Best Buddy] and I like. She’s really sweet you want her?
Me: You named her after the anime character? The one who “is a merciless and sadistic killer without a conscience who will kill anyone at the slightest provocation, even unarmed civilians?” And you say she’s “sweet?” Are you sure?
B: ^Exactly. That little kitty is a merciless and sadistic destroyer of music recording without a conscience who will jump on any keyboard at the slightest provocation, even unarmed civilians. [They had been making music until the kitty make them stop with her antics]
H: Lmfao. My mother has seen Black Lagoon. Holy fuck my life just got turned upside down. Everything I thought I knew about my mother has been irredeemably flushed down the shitter.
H: But in hindsight, the character “Revy” is actually very moral. My cat fucks everything up for her own amusement. And I kinda like that. Its funny. I cant get mad at her.
Anyhow, I quite like the name Revy. This cat is so much like Din. She will sit on my pc monitor and stare at me while I am trying to watch a movie. Or jump onto my keyboard when I am really into a song I am playing. So cute.
Me: Hey! Your Mom is cool, Jack! (a hundred bucks says he won’t recognize that reference 😉 )
It amazes me that he would think I watch anime, and I confess that I’m disturbed it didn’t occur to him that I would just Google and find the meaning of “Revy.” Does he think I’m stupid or just too old to know how to find information online?
Srsly? Am I That Old? I know I’m out of touch, but really?
The burning question: is this my new cat? I’ve been waiting for over two years for another cat to fall into my life, and maybe little Revy is The One?
