Dan and I have been back from our two-week travels in Taipei, Taiwan for several days now, and I knew that as soon as I was over being sick from the journey back (how many ways can I say I HATE FLYING) and finishing up Maple & Penny’s book layout, I was going to blog about Gigi. Gigi, the most adorable kitty on the entire island. The entire universe! We took a little trip to Kenting, in the southern-most…nub, for lack of a better word…of Taiwan with my mother, who booked us a place at the most charming little inn near the water, fashioned after the whitewashed houses of Santorini, Greece. After an afternoon of hiking, we returned to the inn but never made it back to our rooms. Gigi was lounging on the couch in the office, looking completely unreal, like an animatronic in the Japanese section of Epcot Center, complete with quivering, anime eyes. I MUST GO TO THERE!!! So we went to Gigi, and she was soooo soft, her fur shaved close to keep cool, and I picked her up and she was soooo heavy and soooo floppy, and she purred, had the most humongous green eyes, a lion’s tail, chubby legs, ears far apart, drank out of the running faucet, all the water beaded up adorably on her face, and we all nearly died.
She is Persian Ragdoll mix. I could have very easily traded sight-seeing to spend an entire day with Gigi. But now that I’ve shared, I must get back to combing the internet for a Gigi to adopt.
