Also, the kit ti es went back today. :( They were all very good about it though, and hardly mewed-howled-bellowed at all (unlike the trip to my house from the shelter a few weeks ago). They are in great shape and oh-my-god heavy. Much heavier than you'd think, just looking at them.
But they're sweet, and I'll miss 'em, even if they had this nasty habit of leaving litter all over the kitchen, and managing to find a way onto the counter to eat my basil plants, and despite Pica's obsession with the broom. They were fun, and good company, and always kept me from getting a case of the lonely's when I was missing not being in the same place that I always was.
Nothing beats a little snuggle from a fluffy kitty to lighten your spirits just a bit.
