    Since it almost reached 70 yesterday, we opened the window in our family room. Our 1.5 year old cat immediately went flying toward the open window sticking her nose to the screen welcoming the fresh outdoor air that she has been denied the last 5 months. Our youngest has never experienced it and cautiously approached the smells the wind was blowing in. It will take her a bit to not be scared of it. I guess she liked the glass between her and all the birds and squirrels that she has discovered that populate our yard.

    I'm trying to adopt a pair of kittens (three months old!), and first I need to take Lucy to see a veterinarian tomorrow to confirm she's been spayed and she doesn't have feline leukemia. I'm sure she'll be fine, but it's a step I've got to do since I lost her paperwork.

    Anyway, I went to the shelter yesterday to put a deposit on my kittens. I shouldn't go to shelters, it's very dangerous for me, I want to take every kitty home. There's this one who broke my heart, he was just staring at me the whole time I was there, and he kept following me around if I moved, unblinking. He was looking at me like he's always known me, and asking "Oh hi mommy! Are you here to take me home now?" and it was so hard for me to leave him there.

    Cat's know a sucker when they see one. :lol: :lol:
    At least you know you're adopting a pair so that should give you a tad more self control.

    Ok, I was able to sneak up one without them hiding. Not perfect but more cute then hiding.

    She did open her eyes to let me know she was annoyed about being disturbed.

    Seeing all the pictures of your kitties makes me really want one.

    Some cats choose you, not the other way around. For instance, the cat I tried to adopt last year seemed to really like me (her human was a bit miffed that the cat was more affectionate with me than with her), but Maddy vetoed the adoption with a loud :gripe:&$*(!#^&*$)%@!!!:gripe: so that was that.

    Adding a cat to your home for me it is not the same like adopting a pet, but it is like adding a family member, undeniably the cutest and the most furry family member.

    I am having difficulty spotting two dark kittens on our dark carpet. It's annoying, especially if I happen to be in a hurry.

    Which brings us to the point of two dark kittens born in our garden. We have an outdoor momma cat that needs to go in and out constantly.

    I know it was a joke. That's why I laughed.

    Sorry to be a nerd, but when I saw the cat my first thought was 'gosh, the fractal nature of the terrain in that image really does mislead you as to the scale of what it depicts'.
