The cat people

I never thought I’d have three cats in the house. Two maybe, but never more.

We started with Blu, a shelter rescue that we fell in love with via pictures posted on Petfinder.com. After several months had gone by, we got Twinkie from a coworker. We had two “kids” that could keep each other company when we were out of the house and we figured that was that. Then Macy Gray came into our lives.

When I first brought her home, it was out of pure necessity. I had to save this kitten and make sure that she was going to be properly cared for. I figured that we would be able to find a good home for her and we’d go back to being a two-cat household. Things have a way of not always working out as planned.

We’ve had her over four weeks already and she’s growing like a weed. Honey continually reminds me that I promised we’d find her a new home, but I can’t seem to gather the courage to hang a flyer anywhere. I know that vet bills and upkeep for three cats will be rather expensive, and that there will be more cat hair to vacuum and litter to scoop, but the thought of her being mistreated makes me cringe. Even the idea of her being outside in the heat is enough to make me want to keep her.

So, for now, we are officially the cat people. No one may ever want to come to our house for dinner, but they’ll understand our predicament when they see Macy Gray’s precious mug!

The perfect autumn day

Today was absolutely beautiful. The sun was shining, the clouds were light and wispy, the sky was blue, and the temperature was just right. The perfect autumn day.

As I type this entry, I am laying in my comfortable bed snuggled up with Twinkie (who can’t decide whether to purr or sleep), the scent of dinner still lingers in the air, and my heart is completely content. I am one lucky son of a gun.

Blogbits

Imagine Me & You – A very cute film I watched Monday night. I needed a break from 9/11 coverage, because it was just too depressing.

Politics – Enough politics for awhile (unless I read or hear something really interesting). I tend to get a little upset with the injustices in our political system, so I have to take a step back and relax.

Twinkie – He is getting fixed on Thursday. I can’t pick him up until Friday afternoon, and I’m afraid he will be scared being away from home.

Honey – He’s been helping his mom move into her new place, and hasn’t been around much for the last week. I miss him.
