No, not a child (yet!). This weekend, our landlord finally agreed to let us have a cat! So, we adopted a kitty from the SPCA! She is around 3 years old and just adorable! She is settling in and seems to be perfectly comfortable with us.
We went with an older kitty, instead of a kitten, for a few reasons. 1) Their temperament is known, as is if they lived with other cats or children before. 2) They often have a harder time getting adopted. and 3) The fee for adopting them is much cheaper if they’ve been at the shelter for over 30 days (as each of these had!)

This little sweetie picked us out! She started rubbing on us and talking to us when we first walked in. Then, I set down my backpack for a minute and she immediately walked over to it, sniffed it, kneaded it, then made it a bed and fell asleep! R and I looked at each other and said “We’ve been adopted!” and brought her home!
