Cats - The Lyorn's Den

I___ dragged me to the animal shelter today to look at cats.

I instantly fell in love with two big blacks that tried to bite me, but one of them already was taken and the other needed her freedom.

So I decided on two five-months old boy kittens: a tabby and a white-with-tabby. White-with-tabby is a little shy, tabby is curious.

Now I have to talk to the landlord about cats and cat nets (never needed one before...), tidy up every level surface, and in 10 days I might have cats again and can try to find a way to get them to coexist with the new furniture. I fear it will be doomed to failure and already regret not keeping the old IKEA couch and the mouldy carpet.

I must have been crazy.
I can't abide waste and stupid consumerism, and then I go ahead and buy furniture. And curtains. What the hell was I thinking? I knew I wanted to have cats again, but I went off onto a completely deluded buying spree. I shouldn't have bought any of it. I cannot keep it. I feel like head-desking. A lot.

ETA: Ah, forget it. I should know by now that lack of sleep makes me into a complete drama queen.
They are very cute (and uncommonly slender) kittens with beautiful eyes and sweet voices.

Current Mood: not that anxious

Poor thing ^^

I know you love cats and I hope they make you happy.

Get study covers for the sofas until you have trained the little ones.

Get some rest.

Make photos ^^

Enough with my "klugscheißen"

Give me a call one of these days ;)

You are up at eight in the morning? My goodness. I'm glad weekend is coming up, for some reason I never slept before 4 am last week. My home planet must have 30 hour days.

Covers will be tricky, I fear.
Well, I'll try to work from home a lot while the cats are new.

You should have seen those two big blacks. Cuddly, purring, and biting. (Also, big and black.) You'd have loved them, too.

I'll try not to raise tabby and spotty as killing machines this time, though. According to the shelter, tabby is called "Jack" and spotty is called "Jojo".

Change names? Keep names? "Jack" and "John"? "Joe"? (Not happy with "Jojo".)

I needed to go to the ARGE for more bureaucracy than I definitely care for - more than any sane person cares for. I was half successful ... Argh(e)

Then the Finanzamt (tax office?)... sigh. At least there you can find people with more than 5 working brain cells...

Jack and Jo is cool - you can always say they are named Captain Jack and Captain John. I like that you are getting tabbys - though I am sure I would have loved the big black monster cats ^^

Keep a water spraying bottle handy ^^

To bad about the "No-killing-machines" rule ;)

Jack and Johnnie?
Paddy & Glen(fiddich)?
Jameson & Tullamore aka Jamie & Tully ?
ok ok, I'll stop now, you don't have to kill me!

Whatever the names might be, it's great that you'll have purring monsters again :-)
