I'd like to take this opportunity to introduce everyone to the very first pet of my own of as an adult. This day has been 12 years in the making. I wish I could tell you her name but right now it's up in the air. Her old name was Ivy and Buzz is set on Zeke. It doesn't really matter what her name is anyway because I have never ever called any of my pets by their Christian names. Right now, I just call her Kitty or Keekers.
Thank goodness for craigslist. I was looking to adopt a young cat rather than a kitten and the shelter fees in Ventura county range anywhere from $95 to $120 dollars. This little girl not only was free to a good home, but she came fully loaded with her own collar, bowls, litter box and carrying crate. Not only that? But she is a great kitty. She's super affectionate and mews when I talk to her. She's got spunk, she does. And no, not that kind of spunk.
Anywho, Buzz and Kiyah are moving on up to Oxnard. Officially all moved in this weekend. I can't wait until our little family is in our new condo. Together. Sigh. Where's my picket fence?
MORAL OF THAT STORY: My allergies will not stop me from loving the hell out of this kitty cat and I have the swollen eye to prove it.
