Well, I broke down and adopted a kitty this weekend! Not the one hanging out on my doorstep, who disappeared for a number of days and reappeared being fed by one of the neighbors (but who reappeared at my doorstep last night, just as I brought the new kitty home).
My girlfriend sneakily convinced me to visit the local animal shelter, knowing full well that I wouldn’t be able to leave without bringing home one of those poor, sweet cats. We looked at a few kittens, but then a 1 year old female caught our eye. When we took her into the interaction room, she curled up happily on each of our laps, and my heart broke. A bit over an hour later, I was taking her home.
She’s incredibly sweet and loving! We’ve tentatively named her Zoe (‘Zoey’), and she made herself right at home in my place. She spent the night curled up in bed with us and was feeling happy enough to chase a toy around this morning. Here’s a couple of pictures of her, getting some well-deserved loving from the girlfriend:
It’s not easy to tell from these pictures, but Zoe has the most beautiful green eyes. I’ll try and get better pictures of them for a future catblogging event…
