Step 2: Personality. U haz it. People may resist being "freeloaded upon". This is natural. If you sense that someone is avoiding you, then be coy. When you see them drive up, run under their car before they get out, then as they walk away, peer out from under the rear bumper. THIS IS VERY ADORABLE. Trust me. I met my last boyfriend this way. AND Mama didn't lie when she said play hard to get. 'Cause desperation is a very permanent stink. Also, try not to actually stink.
Step 3: Purrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
On a completely unrelated note: this is a cat in my neighborhood I started calling "Dude". As in, "Dude, get out of my way", "Dude, you can't stay here", "Dude, I am not joking". At some point I started calling him, "Hey, Dude", "Whaddya do today, Dude?" and "Look at yoooooou, Dude"! He is an unofficial tenant and he is the one thing that each neighbor has in common. That and all the lead-based paint.
(By the way, those ARE my legs. I did a twist, drop, and shoot to get this shot. Some of the best pictures I've taken are ones where I stopped, aimed and clicked without looking through the camera. Plus, you can't even tell how stubbly my calves are, so yeah, I'm happy with how this turned out).
(Another side note: I've been TAGGED! So stay tuned for some weird sheasy facts).
