Well I have wonderful news! We have bought a kitten! I will be picking her up Wednesday. I wasn't able to bring her home because Chris has tests Tuesday and Wednesday, and one of those is the big GRE. For those of you who don't know, he has to take this test so that he can move on and continue his education to grad school. He wanted to be able to focus this weekend on studying, so no kitten.
The kitten is adorable. There were 2 we were thinking about. One was a male that is 2 months old, and I believe he had already been fixed, and his name is Batman, and then when we got there they had a new kitten. This new kitten is a female, 6 weeks old, and sooo tiny! I went w/ the 6w/o female. I wanted a girl more than a guy bc I am a bit sexist and she was just a little younger than Batman, and she was smaller. She was super playful and alert when I was holding her. Her foster mom and I have a mutual friend, and I just found that out this morning.
We are so prepared. I have food, litter, litter box, toys, perch under the window, and scratchers, oh and lots of catnip. A bunch of catnip came w/ almost every toy and scratcher. We also got her a cuddle bag this morning, it's like a fleece bag that they can curl up in. The kitten is a short hair, and it's important that she stay warm. I read Kittens for Dummies, and learned A LOT about kittens. The name her foster gaver her was Fiona, and I was thinking about changing it to Fifi, but Chris doesn't like that, but we have thought of the name Lulu. We won't finalize it til later this week. We wanna see her personality.
I told Sugar about it, is that odd? I kinda wish she were here to see the kitten, but I know she would hate her. Sugar hated all animals lol. She was never friendly to other animals, just other humans. I know Sugar is in an amazing place, and I feel like I get to join her in my dreams. I love playing w/ her after I fall asleep. She's young again, and she's w/ her mommy and brother and Pepper. I wake up after those dreams feeling pretty good about everything. I miss her, but I still know I will see her in my sleep and after I die :) I will update this again after our kitten comes home, and I'll probably post a link to a catster account. I won't make that until we've solidified her name :)
