"I wish that I could have a friend...

...to stick with me until the end." The Puppy Song

I got my kitten! She is just as adorable as she can be, and her name is Irony. (Her full name is Irony Pepper, but that is not important right now.) She is 14 weeks old, super-cuddly and not too adventurous, though she certainly is spunky! She is not the bravest kitten, but I have never seen anything cuter than her little jump when things startle her, and her tail puffs out as big as it can be, and she looks just like a cartoon kitten.

Although her eyes are green and her fur is brown and black and grey, her eyes mysteriously match her face (much like Tex's used to). In fact, her face reminds me so much of Tex--it has the same patchy-tabby markings and "eyeliner," though she is more full tabby than Tex was. What a cutie!

Here she is, eating my sound-system cord...
...and watching a movie with me...
...and generally being adorable...
...and being as sweet as she can be...
...and ferociously attacking my rug!

Isn't she a doll? I guess I just found it ironic that my dear husband got me a kitten to remind me he loves me while he's gone being trained even though he hates cats... <3

Irony has a face! (and whiskers, and claws, and a tail...)

well, I don't really think he "hates" cats since he has had quite a few in his lifetime. Let's see, there was Precious and then Precious II and then Precious III and then Rascal, then Rambo. and he loved them all dearly - so maybe he just likes the outdoor variety better. But my guess is he'll love this one just because you do. Enjoy your little Irony sweetie.
Love, Mom W
