Distractions - 2 of them!

Yes those are kittens!  Hubby is a cat person and I like animals, we have had cats for all the years we have been married except for the last 3 since we moved.  Hubby has been talking about a new kitten for the last 3 years.  On Friday I got a post from my friend about free kitten Friday at the local shelter.  Hubby and I decided to "just check it out."  When we got there the free 'kittens' were the old mangy cats that looked like they might die of old age fairly soon.  But the little black and white kitty had already picked hubby (you don't pick cats, they pick you) and the little white and black one was meowing "me too, me too"  so we ended up with two kittens, fixed, shots, toys and carriers included for $60, and the pleasure of knowing they were shelter kitties so we sort of saved them, and the money goes to help more kittens and........... really we just fell for them and are justifying the deed now!!  :)
They are very smart!

And they are very polite!




So now we have a litter box in the back bathroom and cat food bowls in the corner of the kitchen, cat toys on the floor and loving little friends to talk to and play with and get distracted from chores by! 

In my own defense I did get the window outsides washed this morning, breakfast cooked and dishes washed...before I stopped to sit with the kitties who were ready for a little nap and then I couldn't move while they were sleeping.....oh my, this could be a problem!!!  :)

  1. Kathy, that is so funny. Obviously you love your new kittens. I am not getting notification of new blog posts on Blogger for some reason. Not sure how to fix that but glad I clicked on your blog and saw your new post.

  5. That should have been 'won' instead of 'one'. I can't believe I wrote that. I think my brain has frozen as it is so very cold here......by Australian standards that is! LOL!
