Pepsi or Coke?


Which do you love? My cat, Brujita, is kind of wondering why I am on the Coke rewards site while I have a Diet Pepsi on my desk...
I actually drink both of them equally, sometimes one more than the other if they are having contests or giveaways. This year, I actually won a flip camera and zune from Pepsi! And I have gotten nice free magazine subscriptions, free Coke coupons to support my diet cola habit, and some other goodies from Coke.
Brujita by the way, means little witch in Spanish. We got her around Halloween in 1999, so she is about 9 years old now. She was left abandoned with her mother and litter mates in an apartment for two weeks with no food or water. I happened to visit my friend Gladys and we all went upstairs with the owner as the lights had been shut off a week before and there were cockroaches and smells coming from that apartment. It was in the evening to make matters worse, and we discovered an overflowing litter box, tipped trash, fish that were amazingly still alive (which Gladys took aquarium and all) and a mama cat and 2 babies who did NOT make it. All of a sudden something little and black ran by my leg and we all screamed. We thought it was a rat or something, but nope, one little kitty had survived-HOW we don't know, but she did. And then she came home with me, end of story. Some people should just NOT have pets, period. But as you can see, she is living the good life with me at the house-along with Shadow, who is another rescued cat who is disabled, and Tippy, who was pretty feral when we got him. Brujita thinks she is the QUEEN and does not like hanging with the guys, but Shadow and Tippy don't mind because they often snuggle together and are best buddies. So that is the scoop on my pets-and how I got them. Which have NOTHING to do with Pepsi or Coke, but what the heck, right?!

It's so funny how cats have their own distinct personalities--some play really well with others and some--not so much. We have one that thinks he is a dog---

I have a dark Tortie cat like yours and she is absolutely a little witch (actually she's a BIG witch)! But I love her anyway.

Neither! Dr. Pepper all the way. I can't believe your "little witch" survived...
