A picture taken in the mirror so I could get the right angle…

I was talking with a guy at work today and he mentioned he had given a kitten away this morning. Long story short: I ended up getting one of his kittens this evening. A lovely, meow-y anniversary gift.
Pictures to follow at some point. I don’t want to take pictures right now because we finally got him to fall asleep, and I don’t want to wake him up :-)
Now that I’ve made the decision to get a kitten for real this time, I’m in no particular hurry to do it. I guess I’ve just been focusing on other things for the past few days…
A friend recently got three kittens, which reminds me how I love kittens and makes me think I could surely be able to get just one. So, I’m putting this on my list for a few days to see if it still resonates, and then I may actually get one. Will have to talk with DH, but it may help satisfy my mothering instinct for awhile until it’s time to have human children.
Until I get a larger apartment. Or a house. Yes, a house.
After thinking it over, I’ve decided it’s probably not a good time to get another cat. My apartment is kind of small and my first cat would probably be really upset. But, I have promised myself I will get a kitten when I move into a larger apartment (probably in about a year).
I really want a kitten (I’ve never had a kitten before – just adult cats) but I already have a cat. A crazy cat. A cat with sharp claws. A cat that likes to attack things, probably including a new kitten. So, I’ve decided that I need to take care of the claw issue before I can get a kitten. If I can keep my current cat’s claws clipped for a month, then I’ll get a kitten. It won’t be easy, though – she’s really good at squirming away while I’m trying to clip the claws.
