Kitties!

Posted By on October 10, 2007

(I'm channeling a little bit of here.)

Today, Liz and I adopted two kitties from Helping Paws Rescue. This is a volunteer animal rescue just down the street from our house. It's kind of heartbreaking, because they have so many Cats and Dogs which need homes. If you are in the area, feel free to contact them and arrange a visit. Of course, you are always welcome to donate.

Anyway, we've adopted two girls, one about a year old, the other about a year and a half old. The younger one is Licorice. She's a bit afraid, and has been hiding upstairs on the guest couch in the midst of a pillow fort. The older one is Heidi, who is adjusting nicely – exploring the house, establishing boundaries with the boys, etc. She doesn't like to be picked up or held on anyone's lap right yet, but absolutely loves to be petted on the ground while rolling about and purring loudly.

Heidi has some supper. Heidi gets petted. Licorice in the pillow fort. (Look at the right side of the center pillow – see the black spot? That’s her.) Peek-a-boo! Hi there Licorice.
