So far life with Pumpernickel is going great! It’s been a few days now and she’s starting to show her personality. She’s quite a suck, and loves running from one room to the next. I think she’s fallen just as much in love with me, as I am with her. She’ll come and jump on my lap and writhe around to get as much love as she can, until she’s had enough to go back searching the house, and then comes back for more.

She’s still a bit wary of us when we’re standing, and very wary of husband. Although last night when I was in bed she did go and get as much love from him as she could since he was awake. Progress!

She’s not outright hiding anymore. Instead of hiding under the bed, she’ll sit beside it while watching us in the kitchen. She’s even starting to explore the basement.

She has already brought me such joy. I knew that this is what I needed, and even husband agrees. Now if only I could get her sleeping pattern to change. I’ll probably work on that this week.


I received the best news this week. Something I’ve been waiting years for. We are finally able to have a cat! This may not be so exciting to others but for me it’s a big deal. It felt like someone told me I was pregnant.

After not being able to have a baby, the next best thing was to get a cat. And now, I finally can!

We went out the next day and just happened across a beautiful little kitty in a pet shop. She has to be one of the most beautiful cats I’ve ever seen. She’s a rescue and from a local humane society. They think she’s about 6 months old.

We went in the adoption room to visit with her and other than being very curious, she wasn’t shy at all! She immediately let me touch her and even pick her up. She was instantly purring. Even husband likes her!

We immediately filled out adoption forms and are now waiting to hear back if we get to keep her. It makes me super anxious though, with the waiting, and I’m so nervous that they’ll turn us down. I’m already so in love with her and I just want her home so I can spoil her.
