TiggerWhen I was 19, I received a phone call on my birthday from my big brother. ‘Do you have a boyfriend at the moment?’ ‘No’, I replied.

‘Well be careful. You could turn into an old spinster living in a little house surrounded by loads of cats.’

Fast forward a few years and it is my (cough cough) birthday this weekend. And last weekend, I went and got a cat for my little house which I live in on my own.

Is his prophecy starting to come true? The cat and I have a good relationship so far. He doesn’t cause mess, he doesn’t take up all the bed, he comes home for dinner every night. Maybe I’ll happily embrace the prophecy!!!

However, the man and the cat get along well so far. Maybe I can just have half the prophecy. Live in a house surrounded by cats and with a man who loves me. Who knows what the next year has in store for me!

    Hi, coming out of lurk mode to say that I’ve been enjoying your stories. Have an extremely Happy Birthday when it comes.

    While there’s nothing wrong with staying single, if that’s your choice, I think your brother was just being concerned. That’s what big brothers do, especially to little sisters. He just wants you to be happy.

    Did your bro tell you which year his prophesy will come thru??? Joke!
    Enjoy your cat or (cats if you end up with more) and enjoy “the man” too……

    that cat looks old.. you got it last week you say?

    you and the man sound content, you don’t have to worry about the prophecy :p

    hopefully his prophecy is as accurate as dr phinn’s!!

    it’s not a good picture of him but the cat is about 4 1/2 – he was my parents’ cat, but for various reasons he’s now moved in with me.

    Good luck with both cat and man. All the very best for the upcoming year. Enjoy the birthday when it gets here.

    Happy birthday when it comes.

    I won’t bother to take on the prophecy, just to say I thinks dogs are far nicer…cats sneaky, feisty and ungrateful at times….dogs are 100% loyal.

    Cat and a man, well at least the prophesy isn’t true since there is a man in the picture now.

  • 11. madbull  |  October 6, 2007 at 8:08 am

    He said a house full of cats, didn’t he? Just don’t get anymore and the prophecy cannot be fulfilled! 🙂

  • 12. Gela  |  October 6, 2007 at 3:01 pm

    Happy Birthday KG!

  • 13. mad bull  |  October 7, 2007 at 2:28 pm

    Happy birthday, KG! Hope you’re having a ball!

  • 14. Leon  |  October 9, 2007 at 1:59 am

    Well, the man could leave. So the prophecy can be fulfilled!

  • 15. experienceaurie  |  October 10, 2007 at 8:41 pm

    Best Wishes for your Birthday.

  • 16. JamRock  |  October 22, 2007 at 6:46 am

    Well all I can say is, one is high maintenance and the other pretty independent – go figure! Which one can’t you live without? lol
    No, seriously, all in due time – enjoy your cat(s) and the right man will fall into place – its all about faith not some prophecy from your wretched bro! lol
