“Pardon me while I stretch and coil and point my legs in all directions and my tail in another. And now I bend over my bed – and look up at you. What do I see? A human, for sure. What do you see? Ripley, fine small girl cat – and, because I just can’t help myself: ‘Believe It Or Not!’”
“Hee, it’s me. I am black. I am Black. I am BLACK. Just as black as midnight, as a black hole, as coal, as obsidian, oh, I am a fine very black cat. If you, good human, are seeking power, wisdom, and good luck, you could do no better than to seek a fine black, very black, cat such as I. The wise and powerful Norse goddess Freya always rode in a chariot piloted by two black cats. In Wales, the town of Cydweli has a black cat on its Coat of Arms. And Charles I of England? He was doing fine until his favorite black cat died. The next day he was arrested. Within the month, he’d lost his head.”
“Moral of my stories – I am powerful and lucky and will keep you – if you adopt me – from losing your head – which would be a bad thing to lose. I am also sweet and charming and proud. I think deep thoughts. I am just the right size for petting and purring and, if I slow down, settling into a lap.”
“I suppose you’ve seen gymnasts and wrestlers. Probably you’ve seen some of those Gumby things, too. But you’ve not seen what a being can do with a body until you’ve seen Ripley wake up and stretch – put her right foot in, put her left foot out, put both feet up and shake them all about….I would surely have won a gold medal at the Olympics if Animal Control hadn’t stopped me at the airport.”
“Play with me. Bring me toys. I’m intuitive. I’ll read your mind. Your mind is saying, ‘Adopt Ripley. Adopt Ripley. She’s only about a year old. She’s spunky and powerful and tiny.’ Ripley is saying, ‘Bring $120 – and some toys – just do it.’ Ripley gives you hand nuzzles to seal the deal!”
If you'd like to know more about me, just stop in at the Adoption Center to meet me or leave a message for my secretary at 651-642-5900 ext. 3. She'll call you back.
