Dave and I adopted a little female cat for our cat Micah yesterday. I say “for Micah” because he and I both were inconsolable after losing Tiger…and Dave’s birthday is coming soon so “Rachael” is also a birthday present.Rachael, who is a little wisp of a 3 year old cat, was found at a local rescue place where the cats can roam free and learn how to interact with other cats. She is half the size of Micah and came with that name. We are keeping the name because now both cats have Biblical names!
The shelter had labeled Rachael as “calico tabby”, but I say she is a Torbie (tortoise shell and Tabby mix). We pick her up Tuesday night at our new vet’s house.
And speaking of new additions….you may remember me saying how I’m grieving over my friend Patti’s moving away this year. Well, they are having a new house built for them in their new town and cannot take much furniture or their BIG tv…so I am buying most of it from them. Now our family room will have matched, wonderful furniture, our master bedroom will be very classy now, and we’ll be able to get rid of my mom’s kitchen set that I always hated and have the set that I always loved….when I had my cat and dog care business, I spent many a week or weekend in Patti’s house and got used to their furniture. Patti and her husband are like family so they (er, their furniture) will be a part of our home now.
The big furniture transfer will hopefully be on March 7th. I’ve been having fun planning what furniture will go where, and now we’ve got some rearranging to do to help that to happen! Oh, which reminds me, our garage’s storage area needs to be cleaned out too. Never a dull moment in the Stanton household, and for that I am thankful!
P.S. Patti is such an amazing lady. Before I met her, she had her own photography business. She bequeathed to me her award-winning, huge picture that I already have put up in the family room. It’s a wonderful remembrance of my dear, precious friend.
