The Clock Out Pet of The Week: Parks and Roman

Another week in the books and it’s Friday which means we’re back in action for another rendition of Thanks to our friend Cush for taking the reigns and bringing us a great kitty from his home last week.

I’ll be heading up in the heat to see Third Eye Blind and Jimmy Eat World but before shoving off, I have some fuckin’ nice kitties to share with you. These lovable little friends come to us from Kate. She’s their foster mommy. Anyone that fosters kittens is a grade A+ person in my books.

Without further ado, let’s give a warm welcome to Parks (after Stella Parks) and Roman (after Alison Roman). These names from from Kate and her roommates who have anointed themselves “millennial trash.” This begs the question: if one is self-aware of being millennial trash, does that make them millennial trash? I’ll let you be the judges.

First up is our kid Parks. He’s a cat of choice, meaning he enjoys being held, sleeping on your when you pass out from raging too hard celebrating our great nation and foot play (he likes to nibble on toes). He also enjoys bowls and everything about them, including sitting in them, eating frosting, peeing in them. No bowl is too big or small. I got you pal, been there.

“It wasn’t me, I swear”

Next on the docket is Roman. Opposite his brother, he enjoys not being held, fleeing his human overlords and being a vocal Mr. Kitty via his small but mighty meows. He’s one of those kitties that’s an escape artist, as he’s mastered escaping his play pen with getting on the bed as his end game.


When I first received Kate’s email detailing her adventures with Parks and Roman, I was touched. As mentioned above, those that foster and love animals are special people. I would fail at it, meaning we’d be living a Noah’s Ark life, which is already the case. Kate finished her email, questioning whether having three cats in a small two bedroom apartment is too much? I say do you and keep those kitties.

Sprawl naps are the best naps

Got a sweet pet to share with the world? Whether it’s a dog, cat, bird, lizard, snake or what have you, please send me an email at titled, “Pet of the Week” along with some information about your pet, Twitter handle, a few pictures for the article and Twitter. I cannot promise when it will be published, but I will do my very best to bring a new face and story every Friday at noon for your viewing pleasure.
