    Aw Maya is a cutie! Ryans cat, Missy, is also a super scaredy cat. She wants to see us when she gets home but the she gets scared of all the noise we make putting our stuff down. And repeat. It’s cute though.

      Was she the runt of the litter? I am so baffled as to why Maya is so scared of EVERYTHING!!

    What a cute kitty!! I have 2 cats (adopted 6 months apart). One of them was not the runt of the litter. He is actually HUGE, but he’s the most scaredy cat ever. My friends rarely see him (he’s always hiding), and will only let me pet him on his own terms. If i do sudden moves he runs away and hides. If i am yelling at his “brother” in the other side of the room he will run away and hide as well!! I think he won’t change (He’s been with me for 4 years now :))
    I loved your post about exercising and making excuses. I’m trying to lose weight now but it has been extremely hard. I’ve always been around 130lbs, then in the past couple years i have gone up to 160, and today i weighed at 170 which is the highest i’ve ever been. I hate the way my clothes fit (they really don’t). I am studying for a big exam and am not handling the stress well. The worst part is i’m not one to not care and go out and have fun anyway, i am really self-conscious and am being very anti-social due to my weight…
    Ouf that’s a lot of talk for my first time commenting your blog 🙂 Anyway i’ve been following your posts for a while and you are very inspiring!
    Thank you,

      Thank you for reading, Sally. In my experience with having cats and when I used to volunteer at a cat shelter–every cat is different. It’s just like people having unique personalities. I never had pets growing up so this was a news flash for me! I can see the differences in my two cats and what their needs are better now.

      Don’t feel discouraged about your weight. It sounds like you are catching “early.” I wish I had taken the steps to reverse the weight gain when I spent a few years hovering between 180-200. What a difference it would have made.

      Don’t be self-conscious! Just get out there and do it. 🙂
