G and I adopted two cats from the Humane Society just before Thanksgiving…what were we thinking?!
Okay, in our defense, the kitten was for my son’s 16th birthday.
All he wanted was a kitten. And maybe a car. But he knew a car was out of the question.
But while we were at the Humane Society, looking for a kitten, G fell in love with a 2-year-old cat named Pocahontas.
“I feel sorry for her,” he said. “No one adopts the older cats.”
He had a point.
And after all, the kitten could use a playmate.
So suddenly, we went from a house with no pets to a house with two cats.
It was fun watching them make friends. And try to scale the Christmas tree.
And in the end, they turned out to be two of the best decisions we made this Christmas.
