In an earlier post, I alluded to the trials of 2012, and the sorrow of losing my dear cat Inky at age (almost) 20. That was very difficult, and I will always miss her, but a good thing did come of it: Ben and I were fortunate enough to find two adorable, marvelous kittens, now named Charlie and Lucy, and they have mastered the art of doing cute things all day to the point that a surveillance tape of us at home would be absolutely unlistenable due to the endless “Oh look how cute s/he is!”
The puking/peeing/howling era having yet to begin, we’re still in that honeymoon period where all we do it play with the cats all day. And that’s just how I like it.
