After getting home from the test conference (and being completely exhausted), I became a kitty-mommy again. Her Royal Highness, Princess Buttercup had been getting rather needy and demanding since we lost both Baby and Bugger within a few months of each other, so The Husband and I had been making inquiries with the local shelter.
We’d been approved to adopt, but I didn’t expect the Husband to come home with two new kittehs.
So we are now slowly getting Midnight (who is, yes, black) and Westley (gray and white – we’re not sure if he’s a Farm Boy or a Dread Pirate Westley, but I have a sneaking suspicion he’ll be both. Probably both at once) used to having new humans and living in a new house and all that.
Naturally it has not been without hiccups. Like Midnight deciding he wanted to hide in the basement. And while he has the perfect appearance for a basement cat, finding him to bring him back to kitty pokey for comfort and safety is somewhat challenging.
Westley discovering hidey holes that led us to search the whole house for him was also interesting.
We’re now being a bit more… cautious about kitty pokey (where they have food and water and kitty bed and a selection of toys) until they’re more used to us both. Naturally this means that kitty pokey is getting regular visits from us.
So… here are the best pictures we have of Midnight and Westley so far.
