I Need a Kitten Fix
We have three cats, which you'd think would be enough, but no. For years we had four, so the house feels a tad empty right now. We lost both our patriarch and the second oldest a few years ago, and only one new kitty has crossed our path since then. We always planned on getting a fourth, but just never found the right one to add to our family.
After nearly three years as a three-cat household, I’m seriously feeling the urge for itty bitty kitty feet.
I’m kinda torn on this, because our cats are currently all really happy. They get along well, each has their own spaces and don’t crowd each other. Who knows how a new cat will affect the pride?
But the youngest could certainly use another playmate. Puck is a rambunctious little guy, and he loves to wrestle. Nikita (our only girl, and a tomboy at that) is happy to play with him, but he wears even her out after a while. Darwin? Well, he’d rather be chased than pounced on (The cat plays tag, I swear. You should see the hubby chase him around the house) and giving the other two another target than him would suit Darwin just fine.
Every cat I’ve ever owned has come to me through fate, so I assume one will either appear and need a home, or we’ll happen across one when we least expect it. But it’s hard not going out to find one. Whenever I see a kitten on TV or online I just want to scoop it up and snuggle it. (I wonder if post-baby moms go through this? Could be my maternal side showing)
And it doesn’t help AT ALL that the hubby put this on my desktop:
Four cat, or not four cat, that is the question.
