S as in Shelter. Our time at the animal shelter

… isn’t over yet. I know, you were waiting for a different posting today, and so was I.

It’s sometimes really boring to be an adult: I could have taken Kajsa and Tessa home today, but I’ll wait another night. The vet is coming to the shelter tomorrow, and she’ll control their ears. They don’t really need a vet appointment, and it’s neither mandatory to wait for her approval. However, I thought it’d be wise to take the opportunity. I’ll take them home tomorrow, no matter what the doctor finds, but it had been stupid to rush now. (more…)

K as in Kajsa. Love at second sight

I’m embarrassed about this post. I thought about editing some parts, but I want to be authentic on this blog.

I fell in love with Tessa at first sight. She was so cute and made it easy for me. She let me pet her and showed that she liked me. Kajsa was hiding. She continued being shy for some days, but she eventually warmed up. I had nothing against Kajsa, but it was Tessa I adored. Kajsa felt more like an “attachment”. Wow, this sounds cruel. I made sure that Kajsa accepted me, because I wanted her to feel comfortable at my place. However, it didn’t immediately feel like the perfect match, but rather like another wonderful cat that comes along with Tessa. I love both now. Kajsa and I just needed a bit more time. (more…)

H as in Halfway. The long wait for my rescue cats

It’s been over 2 weeks since I adopted Tessa and Kajsa, and I’ve to wait for another 2 weeks until I finally can take them home. Their ear mites are the reason for this slow adoption process. The shelter requires that their cats are as healthy as possible when they’re coming to their new home.

The long waiting period has its benefits. (more…)

Weekly review – week 14 (2015)

My feline week

What a week! Last week was a crazy feline week, whilst I now had a crazy blogging one: the A to Z challenge started on Wednesday. It’s a lot of fun, but also very intensive. I’m reading a lot of blogs and try to come up with post titles for the letter of the day. A was for feline artwork, B for murderer in my bedroom, C for cats and computers, and D for getting things done. In short: my godchild drew a header for my blog. I believed that cats can prevent computer rage behavior, but I got very frustrated when I uploaded my new header. Voldemort was almost causing a heart attack, but at least my furniture is stable now.
