CAT MOM Athitiya Singhapan, a 10th grader at the Michael E. DeBakey High School for Health Professions, loves to pamper her cat, Brie.
Would you kindly shift your attention to my beauti(furry) friend in the bubble enclosure? Yep, keep your eyes there.
My name is Athitiya (uh-thih-tee-yuh), but more importantly, I hope your eyes are glued on my cat, Brie. For 15 years, I was deprived of anything fluffy, furry, and wide-eyed. Until Brie came around, I was without a furry friend. But once I ran into her at the SPCA, I knew that it would be my life’s duty to care for her. Of all the interesting things I do, one of my favorite passions is to mollycoddle Brie.
“Mollycoddle” is to pamper something or someone in an overindulgent way. Even though she bites my hands to shreds sometimes, I love my cat to pieces. Brie is a funny cat. She is the absolute definition of “scaredy-cat” and will run away when she hears the slightest off-putting sound.
Brie’s personality can be described as electric and eccentric. She meows nonstop when I’m doing homework until I lift her up onto the counter just so she can get a drink from the tap. Even though my mom (who may be equally as cat crazy) bought Brie a fancy water fountain, she refuses to drink anything but tap water. And when baby Brie outgrew her litter box and started peeing on the walls, my dad brought home an even larger one. She is spoiled rotten!
The greatest thing in life is unquestionably love and loving extravagantly. Whether it be love for a furry friend like Brie or loving the souls in life that each strum unique rhythms, love ought to be how you rock and roll. The love that I have for Brie can be the love that you have for others and even for yourself. Stay spoiled. Keep mollycoddlin’.
