The Kitten...

10.01.2009 Kitten. After we lost our last kitty, Rest In Love Jyme, my roomie Kait brought this little feline home to Apartment 513. When she first came home, she was very timid, running from anything and everything. But she slowly began letting us in. She has proved to be quite the rad little cat. And after Kait went on a week long journey across the states, the kitten and I really bonded. It was great.

She loves burrowing under your covers and sleeping right up against you. She loves attacking your limbs when you are both awake and asleep. She love playing and juggling with any object she can find. She loves to eat whatever it is I am eating at the time (except cotton candy). She loves her favorite spot, the back of our free red chair (see below photo).  She loves her extra long tail she has for her acrobatics. She loves to make Apartment 513 as smelly as possible. She loves to sit and stare out the window at the city below. And most of all she loves her little fam!

But the best part about this wonderful little Kitty, is her name. She doesnt actually have one. No, thats not true, she has many! Kitty, Kitteh, Kitten, Shrimp, Zombie, Stevens, Food Cat, Bones, Scampi, Goblin, the list goes on and on. We didnt want to limit her to one title, so we left it open ended. Well, that and none of us could agree on what name fit her best. So we all call her something different. I most often call her The Shrimp or Food Cat (the name Mo picked for her). Kait usually calls her Bones. And so on and so on.

She is the best addition we ever could have asked for. She can keep up with the awesome that lives at Apartment 513, and that is all that we could ask of her.

“But it’s hard to stay mad when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once and it’s too much. My heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst. And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life.” — American Beauty
