Jenna finally wore me down. The end of May/beginning of June, Abu and Aladdin moved into Pet Valu and were waiting to be adopted. Jenna dragged me in there at least twice a week to play with them. She asked me every time to please apply to adopt them. I said no every time.
After 2.5 months of this Jenna was going to the SPCA camp and I figured for sure she’d fall in love with every animal there and I wouldn’t have to worry. Nope. We would leave camp and go visit Abu and Aladdin.
After almost 3 months they were still sitting in their cage waiting for a home. I think the problem was they needed to be adopted together and no one was taking two cats.
Friday the weather changed here (did I mention it snowed here yesterday?) And Ella caught her first fall mouse – she left it proudly displayed in the kitchen. I figured she needed some extra help. And. Well….
Alladin on top, Abu on bottom. Alladin has an extra toe on each foot. Passed out elephant in the corner.
I am officially the crazy cat lady. Ella is mad as can be, the kids are happy, the dog is in denial.
A family happiness moment. Today we played with them and tried to make them comfortable in their new home. A heart expanding with love moment.
As an aside, they are 1. If they live until 16-18 (which is pretty normal for my cats), I will be in my 60s and still have these cuties.
Crazy, happy cat lady.
