I'm not kidding guys....before you read on make sure you are sitting down and fully prepared for what you are about to see. This blog entry is not for the weak of heart. If you cannot stand any of the following:
2) Things that are severely deformed
3) Feel good stories
...perhaps you should go back and re-read the last blog entry instead of reading this one
Seriously, this is your last chance to turn back....
I want to introduce you to one of Lexington's Best Kept Secrets......a little friend named Chase....
Nope....that's the wrong Chase....
Heavens no! That is the wrong Chase too.
The critical error: both of those Chase's have faces.
You see, the Chase I want to introduce you to is affectionately known by her owner's and friends in the Lexington community as "Chase No Face."
That is Chase's Valentine's Day Card. If you think I am joking, I understand how you could think that--but I truly am not. This is Chase in all her glory.
I discovered Chase thanks to the tip of fellow blogger Kristen Geil. She told me to look up "Chase No Face" on Facebook. Yes, she has her own Facebook page. I hesitate to call a cat with no face a diva, but she might be a little bit of a diva. Kristen didn't give me proper warning I feel like (is there really a proper warning for such a thing? Hard to say....), but I stumbled upon Chase's Facebook page and fell in love, eventually, after first falling ill.
Chase's face (or lack there of) can be hard to stomach at first. You wouldn't want to meet this cat in an alley (punny?). But the more you read about Chase on her Facebook page and the more you get to know about how beloved of an animal she is amongst his family and friends, the more she starts to grow on you (figuratively).
(Chase being pensive...)
How did a cat born with such Hollywood potential (I heard rumors that she was supposedly the Natalie Portman of young cats) end up with ......well, no face? Well according to her Facebook Bio:
I WAS IN AN ACCIDENT WHEN I WAS 4 WKS (2005), I BECAME DISFIGURED. I HAVE A FURRY WILL TO SURVIVE & I AM COMPLETELY HEALED. I REQUIRE MEDICATION DURING THE DAY TO KEEP MY EYES MOIST. I WILL ALWAYS LOOK DIFFERENT BUT I AM IN NO PAIN! I HAVE SEEN 10 VETS AND THEY CAN ATTEST TO THAT! IM A HAPPY KITTY AND HOPE TO HELP OTHER HUMANS FEEL JUST AS GREAT ABOUT THEMSELVES AND REALIZE THAT NOT EVERYONE LOOKS PERFECT AND THAT IS OK. =^..^=
You might be wondering at this point what some of Chase's personal interests are? Or you might be reaching for the Tums. Either way, read on....I urge you.
(P.s. If you couldn't tell by now....Chase's owners have a pretty great sense of humor)
Sleeping, drinking milk, fast gallops down the hallway at 2am, sticking my face in any round object (i.e. duck tape roll, bowls, pots, pans, salsa jars)
If being Facebook friends with Chase is not quite enough, worry not...she has a blog as well.
The Facebook page is interesting, but the blog really gives you a more in depth look into the life of Chase.
For example, Chase likes to dress up for holidays:
Also, Chase has fans who send her gifts, such as portraits...
Chase also knows how to party on New Years....
Chase must have seen the iPhone commercial "If you don't have an iPhone...well...you don't have an iPhone..."
Chase enjoys naps with her sister....
Chase, like all of us, had trouble putting down the Doritos...
The best part of the whole blog though...if you look to the side of the homepage, you will find a few neat little fun facts about Chase.
Talent: Never lost a staring contest.
Weirdest Food I've Tried: Dirt...it looked like chocolate-- boy was I wrong!
Anyway, I hope that all of you have grown to love Chase as much as I have. Feel free to add her as a Facebook friend, or check out her blog.
Lexington's Best Kept Secret? I'm thinking Chase (the one without the face)
