Kisa and I are inching towards adoption. To test the waters last weekend we dropped into a pet store under the guise of pricing pig ears and squeaky toys and marrow bones for Bailey. We wandered by bird cages (too noisy), lingered by fish tanks (mandarin fish are for sale!), and strolled by the dog washers (too messy) and realized cats are our companions. No gerbil, mouse, rabbit, snake, lizard, spider or hermit crab can compare. We want a cat.
A few days ago I took the test to another level. I went to a shelter’s website. Perused the pets. Cats. Looking at their faces I knew I needed to bring one home. When Kisa called I came clean. I think I’m ready. Together we went back to the site. Compared notes. Contrasted faces.
This week we took the biggest plunge of all – went to shelter and became pet parents to two, count ’em, TWO lovely faces. HUGE thanks to Chris for helping us find
James Jones. Special thanks to Ms. Ruby Tues for her tremendous support and knowing me oh so well.
Jones and Cassidy come home tomorrow. Much, much more then. 🙂
