This is Hannah, Queen of the Universe.
In our little household she’s the Alpha dog. She’s a funny, quirky creature.
She’s got one brown eye, one green/yellow eye.
She’s got some seriously gnarly breath. (Tara: I brush her teeth, I swear it! But I don’t think it does much for her ’cause sometimes she can knock you over on the exhale. Whoo-eey.)
And she’s cranky. (Maybe she feels self-conscious of her breath.) Unlike Abby, who plays with the dog, Hannah prefers to be left alone. Every once in awhile she’ll allow the dog near her to sniff and maybe lick her head with the kind of please-please-love-me affection that only puppies can dish out. But usually Hannah just squints at you with a hint of disdain so you’ll back off. We are afraid that one day she’s going to take out Lily’s eye with one of her lightning strikes of the paw.
She’s a talker. She constantly wants something and we never know what it is. We’re always asking her: “What? What do you want Hannah? WHAT?? Speak English!”
99% of the time when you go take a shower she’ll be there waiting on the bath mat when you step out. Frequently both cats will appear on the bath mat and the dog will be laying right outside the bathroom door. When you shower the animals appear from nowhere and congregate. WHY? It’s a big question, I know.
When I work at my desk, she’ll often come sit next to me, like right next to my arm, sometimes in the circle of my arms as I’m typing on the computer. I completely ignore her, but she’ll sit there anyway. I think she appreciates the company.
And she likes to watch movies. When I play a movie or TV on the computer she’ll sit there and watch.
And she can sit there for a really long time. It kind of boggles me how long she can sit there.
Until … wait, here it comes …
… that look of annoyance. Apparently she’s already seen Eat Pray Love.
