I'm Back - Now With Cats

   I've been gone from the blog for 10 days, I have no idea if you noticed my absence but I'm still going to tell you why. I'd been taking care of my mom who had surgery. I stayed at her house without internet connection but I used her phone to read my emails. The bright side is that everything went as hoped and she is recovering favorably. Yay mom!


   In other news, remember when I told you that I wanted to adopt a cat. Well, they never called me back, it seems like they lost my application or something because even though I went to inquire a couple of times after I originally applied they have no idea what happened. So I took care of the situation and started to check out my local classified ads page. That's were I found my cats, yes plural.


   I want you all to meet Mia, to be honest I don't like that name at all but she recognizes it so I think I'll have to keep it. The ad said that she needed a forever home because her previous guardians couldn't keep her. They told me that they were going to turn her in to their local shelter but they said she probably wouldn't find a home and would be euthanized due to her age, she is 7 months old. So I went and picked her up on Monday, she was so lovely, cute and well behaved I couldn't believe it. When I brought her to my house she was very scared and hiding anywhere but she is warming up to her new house very fast. She probably is napping on my bed again and she spent all the night meowing non-stop (I guess it's a good thing that I'm a night person), she is so cute.


   Now greet Magia, I picked her name so I really like it, it's Spanish for magic. She was found in the classified ads too but her story is a little different. I was telling my partner last Wednesday that I'd love to have a black kittie with orange eyes. I woke up early the next day and felt like checking the ads again in my mom's phone just because I was too bored. There she was, the first on the list of cats to adopt which means she was the most recently listed. I called the number and she was still available, it was meant to be. She used to be a stray that a young couple fed and groomed. They told me that her mother (who gave birth in their porch) belonged to a neighbor that seems to hoard cats she doesn't even have a way to feed. So they told her that they were going to find a home for the newborn kittens and she agreed. Magia is no longer a newborn, she is around 5 months and she is probably too tiny for her age. I brought her home on Monday as well but she is still hidden and wouldn't let me get close. Let's hope she understands that this is her home very soon.

   They are in separate rooms since I have no idea if Magia has any kind of disease or fleas she could contagiate to Mia who is up to date with everything. I'm taking both my girls to the vet as soon as possible, I want them to be fine and happy. BTW, both these pictures were taken by the previous guardians of my kitties I really hope they trust me soon so I can take better pictures for you to enjoy.

Wish me luck!

  2. They both lovely and I'm sure Magia will stop being shy soon! I also thinkit's a very good idea to have two cats, not much more work than one and they seem to enjoy having a cat companion. (When you have five then you notice, I promise...) ;)

  4. @ Isis: I really hope she stops being so scared soon, it kills me to see her hissing at me and running away. I just want to give her love. I really hope you are right, I would love them to become friends. BTW I'd love to have a cat talk with a real cat lady, let me know if you are up for that. ;3

  6. @ Isis: There have been some progress with Magia, she now eats while I'm in the same room and the last few times she allowed me to brush her hair while she is eating.
