Good things. Happy things. First off, Auntie Heather went to RT (Romantic Times Convention), where she got to hang with a bunch of Minions and author friends and amazing, amazing peeps that my my heart go pitter-pat. Oh! And it was held in Kansas City.
Yeah. Fans of GAC will recognize it as the episode where they did a lock down in Kansas City Union Station. So naturally…I had to have this pic taken.
The convention was amazing. But getting home was even better because of WHO IS IN MY HOUSE RIGHT AT THIS VERY MOMENT, MINIONS.
Now, many of you, I think, recall how difficult things have been since my lil Loki got sick and then passed on. And I’m so, so happy to share news of Smudge with you all! Thank you for the amazing support. Smudge will never replace Loki…but maybe he will help us heal. It’s not easy. Every time I cuddle him, I worry it will be the last time. Every time I pet him, I wonder if I shouldn’t get too attached. But…he already has his lil paw wrapped around my heart. So I think that maybe I should just give in, let go of the fear, and love him for all eternity. We brought him home last night. I hope he’s a part of our family for many years.
A few facts about Smudge:
1. When he meows, he sounds like a squeaky dog toy.
2. He seems to (like most kittens) have ADHD.
3. He moves around in an almost perpetual low-crawl.
4. His tail has lil stripes, as if he has some tiger in him (half Persian/half tiger…?).
5. He cannot figure out how to walk upstairs yet (but he’s only 9 weeks old, so we’re cutting him a break).
As for our other kittehs:
Amenti is shunning him completely, but HAS NOT HISSED ONCE (a huge sign of good things to come for our girl). Fang seems to adore Smudge already and keeps following him around. He even smelled his baby brother’s eyes…which Fang deems to be the highest sign of affection one can engage in.
So…yeah. Busy few weeks. Happy, happy, happy.
