Comfort for Missy

I know you may be wondering who is Missy in my life. Is she my girlfriend? Nope, by the way she is not my girlfriend but it’s just the name of my future pet. Clever enough!? I don’t think so. Well, I think the reason why I named her Missy it’s because of Missy Elliot. She is one of my favorite Hollywood artists because of her song Get Your Freak On, as it always brings back the good memories of the old days!

Missy, in my mind, should be a cat. Not just an ordinary cat because I’m seeing it as a Persian cat. I haven’t thought of her color yet, maybe white or black will do, or if it’s multi-color, why not? Someone says it’s lucky to have a pet with four-color fur.

For me, pets are important to human because it has plenty of benefits. It could be a substitute for babies in a situation where couples are not lucky enough to have it, or even for singles. And just like babies, you could play with it as it could take away your stress, and you need to take care of it in return. Sometimes, the maintenance is quite expensive too because you need to take it to the doctor for check up if it’s not feeling well.

We used to own cats in our home when I was a kid. But when I became busy with my studies, I forgot to take care of them. As a result, they left our home. Some of them even moved to our neighbor’s house and some of them have just vanished. Unlike before, I somehow have my regrets for not taking care of them but now I will ensure my future Missy that I will give her a portion of my busy schedule. Moreover, I’ll buy her stuffs like cat foam beds just to show to my appreciation.

I’m excited to have Missy in my life. I’m planning to have her when I move to my condominium unit by 2016. I just hope that my future Missy will sleep on her bed but if there will be nights that she needs to be cuddled; my bed will still be open for her! (AAP)
