I went to my hometown to meet my dad and stepmother and then together we would go to visit my sister. When I got to my dad’s house, they told me that they had kittens! The mother was hit by a car and my dad found them meowing at the farm and took them home. There were 5, but one got a loving home and now there are 4 adorable, tiny kittens roaming the garden and living a life of luxury in the specially made cat barn. With the new kitties, I counted that my stepmom has at least 8 cats, maybe 9. It’s not a hoarding situation. They all eat well and are taken care of well.
Many of you know that I love cats and kittens are like my kryptonite 🙂 I had so much fun cuddling with them. I wanted to take one home so much, but K convinced me not to. I hope they can find good homes. They are so little and I’m not sure any of them have names yet.
After a few brief moments with the kittens, we all got into my dad’s car and headed to see my sister and her family. I was anxious for a lot of reasons. The most annoying thing that I couldn’t get out of my head was the fact that my sister and her son and husband all had a cold the week before. I was worried that I would catch something. We got there, had lunch, and everyone was happy and healthy.
My sister is almost 9 months pregnant and her belly is so huge. I was freaked out to see the baby moving inside! I felt it too. This was a first for me. I can’t wait to meet my little niece Rose.
I hate that I feel too anxious to hold my nephew close. I love him so much and he’s the cutest, smartest little kid I know, but I am leery that he might always be carrying something (virus-wise I mean). He has been sick a lot and I’ve gotten a nasty cold from him before, so I keep my distance. I wish everyday that I wasn’t like this.
I did get to see my family cat, Oscar, that lives with my sister. Each time I see the poor fellow he seems to have gotten even more obese. He’s an enormous boy. I’d say he is around 3 times heavier than Chester.
Here’s a picture of him:
He’s so chubby, but a really pretty color. Love this goober. He was my first house cat 🙂
It was a long day of driving; 6 or more hours in total for K and I. We were glad to be home, but we got to enjoy the company of my family.
Also, I guess I came into some poison ivy or poison sumac and have it all over my ankles. I thought they were mosquito bites on Friday, which is when I thought I got them, but then they started “weeping,” which is just a fancy way of ointment companies for saying oozing. They’re very itchy and very gross 😦
Thanks for reading! Sorry for the TMI 🙂
