It’s been a long since I posted and since we hiked… W. has two herniated discs on his back so between the pain and the discomfort, carrying weight and going up mountains doesn’t seem like a good idea! I know, right?!
So, we really haven’t been doing much, just chilling at home and enjoying time together and with our 3 cats! Yup, we have 3 and they are awesome in their own ways. I used to be a “dog person”growing up, but when I moved in with W. I realized how awesome cats are and how much personality they have! Then W. had Athena and Perseus that, unfortunately , are no longer with us… But, the legacy was passed along to Duncan and along the way, Momma Cat and Arli made their way to our house and our hearts.
Duncan is 4 years old (will be 5 in October) and has been with us since he was a kitten – a little thing with huge ears and huge tail.
Duncan is one of the best cats I’ve ever met!! Well, he’s mine so… of course I’ll say that, but… he really is! He’s funny, playful, has his own little ways and routines and he’s a super lovable guy! Although he’s a big boy now, he’ll always be my little guy 🙂
Momma Cat is 16 and she’s been with us since April. Momma was my mother-in-law’s cat, and even though the circumstances that brought her here were sad (my mother-in-law passed away), she seems to be right at home here. She went from being a shy scared cat that would spend her days in a basement to a pretty bossy girl that wants no part in any of the young ones crazy ways.
She likes to be left alone so she can perfect her favorite activity – nap!! 🙂
And Arli – the 2 year old that we adopted very recently from the Animal Welfare Society.
Arli is a very active, curious tiny little thing. She still has her moments, but for the most part she knows that this is her home now! Her and Duncan are starting to hang out and play together and it’s starting to sound like we have horses in the house instead of cats! (must be a good sign, right?) (I think she has a crush on Duncan… but, i can’t blame her, he is a handsome guy 🙂 )
I can talk (and write) about my cats forever, but… I won’t, promise! (just in case someone does read this and doesn’t die of boredom :p)
Pets are awesome! They are there for you and love you unconditionally! So, remember, they are pets, not toys!! Be respectful, be responsible! Do your homework before you get a pet and adopt, don’t shop!!
