Okay so I've been quiet for a little while because I've had a lot of work to get done this quarter, but... I have some good news to share this time!
So back in February we actually lost a family pet - our pretty grey kitty, Misty, who was born back in 2002. (Our other cat, Ashes, who was born in 2001 is still doing great though.) This story starts with her, though, because we brought her home on Mother's Day that year when she was about 5 weeks old.
Anyway, my sister volunteers at a cat shelter on Sunday mornings, and this Sunday (Mother's Day) there were some new faces at the shelter - a litter of 5 week old kittens and their mother. 3 of the babies were shades of grey, and tabbies just like Misty was. Long story short, I went to bed sad because I was remembering Misty, and was woken up with a call from my sister along the lines of "so, do you want a kitten?"
So we're bringing home two of the babies, and we named them Smokey and Wisp! I get to meet them when I go home after this quarter wraps up, and I'm super excited! Wisp is gonna be my kitty, and she's absolutely precious. x3
Wisp is the lighter colored kitten, and Smokey's the darker one. They get along really well, too - my sis says they play with each other more than the other kittens in their litter - so I'm glad we're keeping them together for a while. ^-^You can see the full photoset of Wisp here!
I'll post more updates in a while! I should get more active on here by the time Fall comes around, though. The summer is going to be a little busy for me, but we'll see how things go.
I'm currently more active on my tumblr~
