Now that we’re settled into our new home, we decided it was the right time to go see if there were any cats to adopt at the local shelters last week. I thought it would take a while to find a cat (or two) that would fit our needs – able to get along with a dog, be an inside cat, and be very, very affectionate – you know, the kind that would leap up into your lap when you sit down.
Well, the first place we went, there they were: two older cats, a little on the tubby side, both declawed and, best part of all, they liked each other already. We played with them, and even though they were a little porky, they both were rubbing up against us and chasing the toys we dangled.
But we had to wait until this week when my friend came back (you have to prove that your landlord allows pets if you’re renting). So this morning, she called and gave her approval ad after work today, I went and picked them up.
Meet Smudge (female calico) and Watson (male black).
I’m sure that Smudge will come out from under the bed once she feels comfortable. Watson has already made himself at home, checking out the whole room and even using the cat box already!
We’re in love!
