Crazy (about) Cat Lady

I’ve finally put all of my dolls on display! I’m not going to share photos until they’re dressed and have shoes on (>_< I know. Shame on me). The cats have been pretty much running my life (moreso than before). 

I know kittens are adorable, but there’s something to be said about how chill older cats are. My older kitty is now the unwilling mom of the kitten, and she has no where she can escape to without the kitten managing to follow her (there is one place, in the cabinet where my kitten hasn’t figured out how to climb, but for some reason the older cat won’t go there.).

I’ve made a couple of things for my cats! First off, I’m growing grass for them ^^. 

This is wheat grass, grown in a ceramic tiny bowl in some wet paper towels (yay DIY! Yay no dirt!). My older cat loves chewing on grass (and then puking it up).

I’ve also crocheted a mouse and a ball for my friend who has a cat.

To be completely honest, having a kitten is nothing like I imagined. I didn’t realize how hyperactive the kitten would be and how annoyingly in the way she would be to both me and my older cat. I’m hoping the kitten will learn to leave my older cat alone soon, because she’s near 8 years old and an unwilling participant in kitten motherhood. I’ve become a huge fan of older cats lol, and an advocate of adopting kittens in pairs. 

For all I complain though, Nimby is so stinking cute.

So my family has grown in the past week from one cat to two (I now officially qualify as a cat lady). 

Meet Nimby! Her name is kind of short for Nimbus, which was my alternative for Cloud or Cloudy. Also, it stands for Not In My Back Yard, after a character from the Xanth series.

She is so stinking sweet, but also really annoying to both me and my older kitty. I wasn’t planning on adding a kitten to my family, what with my situation not being entirely stable, but it was kind of kismet.

But with cats comes great responsibility. I’ve been at the vet office for 1.5 hours… Just sitting here… Waiting for both cats to be vetted. I’m pooped.

In other news, ^^ I recently sent a girl off to be customized (my newest girl Hi-Ho Marine). She’s kind of my Christmas gift to myself, or like a reward for getting my butt to the west coast. Other than that, I’ve been pretty inactive with my hobbies. I want to be more active but currently I have all of my yarn and dolls safely tucked away from curious kitten paws.
