The New Addition

So we weren't really planning on getting a cat right away, but...

Layla and I were walking behind our apartments the other day and came upon some really cute kittens playing on someone's patio. I was in love!

The next day I we were checking the mail when I saw the woman that I thought lived there. I asked her if the cats were hers. Yes. Ok well was she looking to give any of them away...Yes! :)

All that was keeping me from getting one of them was a $300 pet deposit. Its all refundable, but we just didn't have the money. I went to talk to our apartment manager, who is really nice. She also happened to have given the mother cat to the other lady last year when her cat had kittens. She hooked us up. We just have to pay the deposit in $50 increments until its paid in full.

So now I present, Sable, our new 8 wk old adorable kitten:


The only downside is that he has fleas. We already got some drops for them and they seem to be almost gone after bath, combing, and then the drops. I'm planning to vacuum the floor to get rid of their dead carcasses.

So I guess this is Layla's Yom Teruah, Eid, and early birthday gift all rolled into one :)

She's a lucky girl!

Adorable! Our apt let us do the deposit in payments too... THey'll wave it for abandoned cats and we're so tempted to go ask about one we saw yesterday... The managers looking for someone to take him & he's so sweet. But 3 cats & 2 baby's in this apt.. I'm not sure that'd be a good idea lol. I know we plan on one more cat when we get a bigger place... I just get too attached... and he rubbed on my legs!

@Mama Kalila, I know! When I saw the poor little things playing outside I wanted to adopt all of them. I'm definitely a cat person. Its a good thing I'm married and have a kid otherwise I would be at high risk of becoming a crazy cat lady ;)

I just love the way children interact with animals, they can learn so much from them. Oh, how I wish I could talk my hubs into letting us have a pet (the furry kind, we already have 2 feathered friends which are kind of boring). But alas, he hates the idea of having an animal in the house and well, they can cause alot of destruction sometimes. But so worth it I think.
