In August 2015 my wonderful husband surprised me with a visit to the local SPCA to pick out a kitty! This was a huge surprise because after our cat of 16 years passed away (and her brother three years prior) I promised my husband, who is not a cat lover, that we would be cat free and I stood true to my word. However ten months with no cat and my husband could see I was missing having a cat in my life. I mean, yeah, I'm a Pagan knitter, of course I miss having a cat.

Meeting Ezra for the first time.

Interesting little factoid: My daughter turned 13 this year (August 2016) and my husband, the man is no fan of cats, decided she needed an extra special birthday present to celebrate her entrance into teenagerhood.

New Friend

Okay, I will admit I've been looking at orange kittens on the local cat rescue sites (even before Cecil passed away, I wanted a fourth!), but I honestly did not believe I'd find one.

On Saturday February 10th during the National Adoption Weekend at my work this little gaffer came into my store. It was only by fluke he arrived. He was scheduled to be put at another location for adoption, but one of the cats we had needed to go back to a less stressful situation.

He is 8.5 months old, which is about four months older than what I was looking for in a new kitty, because I wanted a kitty who would be able to adapt to our other pets, our way of life (RVing with kids and pets) and, especially, being young enough that Queen Ezra wasn't going to have a hissy fit. Also, I had NO clue if he had ever been around dogs before, let alone big ones.
Well ... this guy won me over. He was relaxed, mellow, snuggly, and full of purrs. 
I didn't tell my husband I was bringing him home, and …

It has been awhile

It seems to be a trend for me. Start out the year full force with blogging and then forget. I really didn't forget. There'd be days where I'd want to blog, but after working and mothering and all that fun stuff I just didn't have time. Also Ethan's tablet broke so he has more than taken over my laptop (I'm using it now because he is pre-occupied elsewhere). Soon I will have a new laptop and he will be the proud owner of this one, but for now we "share" which means he mostly uses it.

In five days Michael will be off night shift and I'm more than thrilled. Life will HOPEFULLY get back to normal. Night shift is tough on the worker, yes, but it's also tough on the worker's family, especially since our weekends are staggered. He gets Saturday and Sunday off and I (mostly) get Sunday and Monday, though the odd week I have to work on a Monday.

Anyway ... cats!
