Is This Livvy on the Cat Food Bag??

October 22, 2010

Find the Kitty

I bought a bag of Dad’s cat food yesterday. I flipped the bag into the shopping cart and did a triple-take when I spotted the photo of this cat:


Holy cow!!! Is that my cat?!?!?!

I came home and the kids and I closely inspected the picture. Everyone said it was Livvy except my daughter, who said the nose was too long. But the cat in the photo has the same pink nose with brown “trim” all around it, the same little kink at the end of the tail, the same polydactyl toes, and the same markings. WHOA! We looked through our online photos of Livvy for a copy. The closest I could find was this:


Isn’t she absolutely BEAUTIFUL?!??! šŸ˜€ My heart turned to mush. šŸ™‚

But no, I guess the Dad’s cat is not Livvy. The markings under the eye and on the nose are a TINY bit different. And the stripes on the Dad’s cat legs are not as pronounced as Livvy’s are. I’m rather relieved. I didn’t want to have to contact Dad’s and ask them what the heck are they doing with my beautiful cat!

Anyway, it’s really weird to think that Livvy has a “twin” somewhere. I’d heard that people also have “twins”- somewhere on this planet there walks another person who looks strikingly similar to you, someone who can pass off as you on camera or driver’s license! :-p Maybe I have seen too many “In Search Of” episodes as a kid. But it is a fact that I have been approached by strangers, asking if I was so-and-so. It’s happened several times in my life. Apparently, I look like a number of other people. When I was in New York City, in drama school, my Theatre History teacher confessed that I looked just like the young lady who had run off with her husband. Shocked, I exclaimed, “Well, it wasn’t me!” So it’s creepy to have a “twin,” I think.

ANYWAY. Boy, did I get off on a tangent. LOL. So Livvy has a “twin,” or something pretty close. That photo threw me for a loop, I tell you. But I guess you could say the Cat’s On the Bag.

    Boy that picture on the bag sure does look like Livvy. She must have a twin somewhere. That is pretty neat Livvy and good job keeping it from your family. That is a gorgeous picture of you in the snow. Take care and have a great weekend.

    That IS an amazing likeness! There ARE other lynx pointed Siamese kitties around, but this one looks pretty darn close to Livvy! I’m still not convinced she hasn’t been off moonlighting as a cat food model.

    Oh my goodness! It DOES look like Livvy!! The main difference, I think, is that Livvy has blue eyes, and it looks like the cat on the bag has brown eyes. But oh my word! I have actually seen several cockatiel bird seed bags that have birds that look JUST like my birds. It’s scary! šŸ˜›

    I’m constantly getting “Don’t I know you from somewhere?” Or “You look exactly like so-and-so.”

    Apparently I look like EVERYONE. I don’t know what that says about me šŸ˜‰
