Making it Official (photos)


This afternoon, I finally sacked up and approached my landlord about our foster kittens, who over the last 3 months have truly integrated themselves into our hearts. 

I'm a big wimp when it comes to any sort of confrontation, even friendly ones like asking for a raise or asking to defy your lease and keep not one, but TWO kittens. Who will become cats. Likely fat cats. 

But you know what? 

He said yes!! 

So, Evan and I are officially, finally pet owners. It's been 5 years since I had a pet I could call my own, and I've been missing it every day. 

Couldn't ask for sweeter intros into adult pet ownership!! 


 Did they really look like this?
 Magoo and Mack the first day we took them home.



Time flies! The kittens are now 14 weeks old and getting their neutering on Monday! But still super-cute.


 Since ^^this^^ picture was taken, I gave up on keeping them off my desk. Moved my golden pothos to the top of the wire rack and threaten them with death if they even look at it. They love my desk... *sigh*

Didn't I tell you that you were going to keep them? Huh???

Glad the landlord said yes. I know you're happy.

Lola Sharp said...

I knew your landlord would say yes. :) Who could say no to you?

So you're an official forever family. (a FURever family?) ♡ CONGRATS!

Your fur-babies look cute and innocent all cuddled up together on that pillow.

Hope those vampire aliens and zombie-ish creatures are coming along, 'cause I wants to read them. (what fun stuff to write in October, yo.) (and now what will you write for Nano?)

KITTIES! Those are super cute :) I'm glad your landlord decided to let you keep them, though if he had said no, you could have trained the kitties to be your unholy army of the night and get your revenge :P

You have a super cool landlord!!! Send him a high five for me!

They really have grown. Roo has, too. She is sooooo unlike Kitty Boss. She has no boundaries, no fear, no idea how close to death she constantly comes. Okay, that's not true, but boy, she really pushes the limits of her luck.

Still, we love her like crazy and so does Kitty Boss. What can you do?

I'm really glad you get to keep them and without having to hide them or worry about being found out. Been there, done that.

Have a great week!

OMG they've gotten so big! I love when I see my babies when I first got them and they were little itty bitty, my siamese was as white as snow and now I glance over at him sitting next to me on the sofa and he extra long and lean with carmel and chocolate colors all over him, only a little white left *tear* kittens are so cute.

Congratulations!!
