As most of you probably already know, Keith and I brought a kitten home from Altus this past March. Her name is Cami and she is now about 10 months old. She keeps us on our toes and I honestly think we've both been in better moods since she's arrived. There's never a dull moment. She's Keith's first true indoor-only cat, and it's a lot of fun watching him with her. I'm definitely a cat person, I always have been; I'm starting to suspect he is as well.
Cami weighs about 6lbs now. I must say, if she doesn't get to growing, she will be the smallest cat I've ever had, by at least half. We usually tend to grow them pretty big on my side of the family. However, even at her small size, she's still able to take up approximately 3/4 of the king sized bed at night. I do love that she sleeps with us though. I've missed that presence in my life for the past 10 years. I had to go and purchase some lighter colored sheets, as I am constantly afraid I'm going to come back to bed in the middle of the night and squish her. I'm not completely confident that she's smart enough to get out of the way. I'm kidding; well, I'm half kidding.
She is an excellent snuggler, when she's in the mood. And she is usually in the mood. I've actually got a kitty lap-blanket happening as I type this. Almost every day, when I get home from work, Cami and Keith are snuggled up on the couch. It's pretty adorable.*
Anyway, I know that not all of you are into cats, and that's fine... even if I do think it's a little weird. But no matter what, you have to admit that there's nothing like the love and snuggles of a four-legged friend.
So, even though our day is now full of special** cat food, flushable cat litter, and a little bit of feline acne, it's also full of laughs and I'm very happy about that.
