A couple of weeks ago I wrote a post about my childhood friend, Skinner. I have to confess I feel guilty writing a blog post about Skinner before writing about my very handsome cat, Neecko. If you met me 14 years ago I would have told you that Neecko was mine and Skinner belonged to my brother – though we both treated Neecko and Skinner as our furry siblings.
I loved Neecko. He was such a beautiful, mischievous Siamese.
Neecko was a true Canadian at heart – he loved hockey. My brother and I would play hockey with Neecko in the kitchen. Neecko would be the goalie. His cat food was the hockey puck. The space under the stove was the net. Hockey in the kitchen with Neecko = good times.
Neecko loved the things that most cats love: being outside, climbing trees, killing bugs and birds, brown paper bags, balls of string, wrapping paper at Christmas. Neecko was not a fan of boys, the sparrows in our backyard, or water.
I loved lazy Sundays sitting with Neecko in the sunshine and watching him play in the garden. Such an entertaining and amazing little guy!
For all the cat lovers out there – I encourage you to check out all these Etsy finds.
