I admit it…I’m weak. Put a tiny little kitten in my hands, and I toss all reason and logic to the wind. Nimbus came into our lives through Irene’s volunteering at a local pet shelter. And now Iris has joined our catty household due to a visit to our friendly vet…

Iris’ Mom was sadly given up to the vet when her owner realized they couldn’t afford the bills. Five kittens were born at Langley Central Pet Hospital, and were raised there with plenty of love and attention. But they needed homes.
I was there with Nimbus a month or so ago, and was invited to see the kittens. No one suggested that we might take one, but I was smitten. They were all very cute…and a few weeks later, just before Christmas, I put my name down for one. Five kittens, and a six person waiting list. Some others apparently dropped off the list, though, because I got the call a week or so ago to come in and pick out our new kitten. And I picked little Iris up today.
I’m the first to admit that we don’t need more cats in the house. With Iris, we now have seven, which is a crazy number. But I love them all, and Iris…well, sometimes my heart is my undoing.
