Our new six-month-old kitten, Inka, with her quickly adopted sleeping pal.
It was time. It has been about a year and a half since our cat for 15 years died. The vet had estimated her age at 3 years when we got her. We have a dog that we love but there is nothing like cuddly-cat love. We adopted her from the Dumb Friends League where we have gotten most of our animals. We had planned to "interview" two cats but after we spent time with this little sweetie, we were sold.
Just twenty-four hours after bringing her home she has investigated almost everything--with only one misstep so far. She stepped off one of the top stairs, through the railing onto the top of a door which began to swing with her weight as she landed with two feet on either side and was hanging on for dear life. My husband ran down the stairs and plucked her from the top of the door and set her down on the floor. She walked off as if nothing had happened.
It's really good to have a cat again.
