Everything Is Easy 'Cause Of You
Do you know why I am so happy I can barely speak in a register audible to the human ear?
They came with doofy Catholic school girl names I can't stand.
I'm pretty sure they'll tell me their names.
In the meantime, let's call this impetuous gal Thing One.
She's very affectionate. She licked my nose.
She has blue-green eyes. It doesn't look that way, but I'm not much of a photographer.
It took her mere moments to warm up to me, if by "moments" I mean about an hour.
At the time of this picture, the kittens were walking all over my apartments, in every direction, looking at everything.
Black kittens on a brothel-red couch: ooh la la!
This is Thing One, deciding I might be okay to play with. Maybe.
Note the papers for the vet. Both kittens are already fixed.
Thing One bears a striking resemblance to Larry, the Little Black Cat Once Bent On Stealing Your Soul.
Meet Thing Two.
Her eyes really are that amazing, intense orange color.
I introduced her to all she could see outside the bedroom and living room windows.
She took a little longer to warm up to new kitten toys, the new apartment and the new human.
Their personalities are quite different.
It's a beautiful day and the squirrels nibble, bound and chase one another.
Thing Two, I was warned, would scarf down all wet food I put out for both pussycats.
She doesn't like to be picked up.
While lovely Thing Two monitored the local fauna -
- equally lovely Thing One subdued me.
These girls are tall and lanky. They weigh so little I hardly know what to make of them.
When she walked all over me, I hardly felt it. When she decided to lie on my head, I couldn't object.
Couldn't breathe much, either. Didn't mind.
As I write this, a kitten is falling asleep on my lap.
As for the superstitious SHHHHHH! of yesterday, an explanation: whenever I tell people what my favorite show is, that show gets canceled. It's funny, right? Yeah, sure. It's funny. While I was in Virginia, I discussed my favorite show with Darla's parents. Last weekend, I noticed it wasn't on the schedule anymore.
I also say that when I talk about things in the works they don't happen.
I really needed this to happen. And now it has.
Thank you. I am so far beyond happy I had to share.
