ingrid

ingrid is our/my mums cat. she is one of the loudest, certainly the most annoying and the cutest cat i ever met. and after 12 years or so i still am not sure if she is deadly intelligent or just very stupid. what she likes best is to drink from the tap, scream at you as if you were torturing her, sit on your mouse hand so you can't do a thing or look very disgusted at the food you just gave her, go outside and return when the food has dried, looking at you as if you would willingly let her starve... 
you might think:
ingrid? what a weird name for a cat... yes, indeed. 
and there is a story to it: 
when we were kids my mum read us a story about pelle haleløs (peter no-tail), a small cat who was living in uppsala, sweden. the rumour goes that a big rat bit of his tail when he was a small kitten, so some of the cats from his neighborhood were teesing him because he had no tail. he goes through all kinds of adventures with his (girl)friend ingrid and often saves her from the mean cat mons. it is a very cute story written by gösta knutson.
acctually we wanted a male cat and call him pelle but it became a female so we named her ingrid.
