Obstreperous George

I will never understand why my neighbors named her "George." 

Not because George is a masculine name, but because she doesn't look like a George at all. Not by a long shot.

In my mind, "George" is either Brendan Fraser's George of the Jungle... 

George of the Jungle and Friend

Does this really need a caption?

Or George Romero, the director who popularized the Zombie genre in Hollywood and gave rise (lol) to several copycat movies and some improved versions on the genre, as in games that became movies or vice-versa. One good example would be the Resident Evil franchise.

She, on the other hand, neither looks like Brendan Fraser mugging it out with a gorilla, nor a rotting, putrid corpse.

In fact, she's so cute and lovable. I see her kin plastered all over the Net and people go "oooh" and "aaah" or "loool!" at them.

But George, this George, just makes me smile... 

This George looks more like a Melinda.
And makes me think of how God must really love cats, because they were made so terribly cute. Especially this one.

No matter that she caterwauls at night... or runs on corrugated rooftops during the daytime, raising a racket...

Being her raw, obstreperous self, totally oblivious that one of her masters' neighbors  (me) has mysteriously gotten over his initial annoyance with her...

And is slowly falling in love with her cuteness.
