It is "kitten season". So many poor little abandoned kitties needing homes - and I want one.
In good news, my sister said she'll buy me one (ie give me money for the adoption, which includes shots and fixing, as well as for the basic items needed, such as collar and food bowls and litter box) for my birthday.
In sad news, I have to wait for my birthday.
It's maddening! I'm so tremendously excited - I've never had my own cat before. Oh, we had cats - when we moved in, My stepdad had two cats (Izzy and Lizzy). Then we got a third cat (DC, who passed away last year at 18 and was our sweetheart), for my sister. Then for my stepdad's bday one year we bought him a kitten (Buddy). And now my mom and sister each have a new kitten (Tyrion is my mom's, Thranduil is my sister's. They're brothers and live together and are so flipping cute!)
So I will have my own cat. I get to choose my companion. I get to name it. I can't wait!!
(But in sad news I've discovered the song "Bleeding Out" by Imagine Dragons and I keep listening to it and it makes me sad because it makes me think SO MUCH of Snape and I just... I have lots of feels, okay?)
