We finally got the majority of our unpacking completed. We still have to figure out where the piano is going and get the table dissembled and stored under our bed (they're both still in storage). I also have a stack of boxes in a corner that probably just need to stay there because I really have no place to put the stuff. It's just knick-knacks and odds and ends or holiday decor. My sewing machine and supplies are still boxed up too.
With everything pretty much squared away we decided to go get our cat. My co-worker's kitty got out and of course wound up preggo so she had two kittens she needed homes for. We originally planned on taking both of them but now we live in 500sq feet and I didn't feel we had room for two. Which made me sad.
We brought Pickles home last Tuesday and we were warned that she is quite vocal. She does meow/talk a lot but they are more like chirps and trills. She doesn't have a loud/annoying meow. Or at least it doesn't annoy me. My husband might disagree. I'm completely deaf in one ear so if I hear a lot of noise while sleeping I turn over and sleep on my good ear. She pretty much just wants attention or food when she is being noisy.
I like to think she is pretty happy. She is definitely my husband's cat though. I'm not at home as much as he is but she does hang out with me in the mornings when I'm getting ready for work, although I think she just waits for me to get done so she can lead me to her cat bowl. She doesn't like it when there is only a few pieces of kibble left. I usually change her water and add an ice cube to it too. She loves that ice cube!
With all the leftover boxes hanging around I decided to create a cat tower for her. I found the instructions on the Martha Stewart website and it was so easy to create. Our lil kitty loves that thing! I love it too because it was free. I'll probably add some paint to it later on when I finally find them. I also want to sew some cushy pillows for cat naps.
I look forward to coming home everyday and getting to see Pickles and snuggle up with her (when she is willing to oblige). She is so pretty and so soft she makes my heart go *squee*. She makes Peter happy too so of course that makes me even more happy.
