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 :)
