So Andrew & I are going to be adopting another cat.
I don't think I posted in here, but my little Beatrix passed away last month of kidney failure. I miss her so much - she was my little baby girl. I adopted her and her brother, Cait Sith, from Dee & Albert when they were just 2 fluffy little kittens. She was feisty, but she grew up to be so sweet. Cait Sith was apparently the firstborn; he's a huge fat, fluffy blob and completely healthy. But Beatrix was always small, and she had been getting sick. When we took her to the vet, we had found she had kidney failure. She got pretty sick, and eventually we had to put her down. I miss her a ton. I still cry all the time because of it.
I don't want to feel like I'm betraying her by getting another cat. It's just that I've always loved cats, and I know that I take the best care of mine and I can give them a great home. For the three short years Beatrix was with me, I know she had a good life.
So I feel like now is the time for us to go rescue a kitty from the SPCA. We are thinking we may get a cat that's a few years old. As cute as kittens are, I know that they're the ones most likely to be adopted. It's the older cats that nobody wants, even if they are sweet. So we are likely going to look for an older cat.
♥ I love kitties.
Also, Andrew & I got back from our cruise last month and there's a bunch of pictures posted on my myspace.
