This is what Julia wanted for her thirteenth birthday.
His name is Puff, and he and she are now conjoined. I'm thinking of making her a "sling" to hold her baby in. It's that serious between them. Homework? Holding your sleeping kitten on your lap is obviously a perk of homeschooling. Reading before bed? It's super-cozy curled up in your blankets with just your bedside lamp on and your kitty wrapped purring against your chest. Kittens and apron strings....kittens and yarn....kittens and fall leaves....ah, memories yet to be made.
And this is Clementine.
She's the little sister. We're keeping her, too, because Mama (that's me....) wants her.....
rather fiercely, actually.
She's feisty, and sweet, and although she has weak hind legs and hops when she runs, she holds her own just fine against her brother Puff.
I've resisted having indoor cats for years now, feeling like I had plenty of living "creatures" to take care of and clean up after. We've tried dogs this summer, and have concluded that we are NOT dog people. We are at least kitten people, and so I've given in, I have a feeling they will be spoiled rotten. How could they not?
~Happy Thirteenth, Julia~
It is our hope that Puff will be a long-time friend and a gift that gives many happy memories over your girlhood years.
You are so very, very loved.
