Cuts, Cats, and Indecisiveness






Ok, I kind of forgot to post my cut pictures, so, here it is...






And yesterday Nick and I went to Fry's here in Maricopa to scope out their tree selection since we haven't yet purchased one. On our way through the parking lot, we spotted a cat running through. As she pounced from place to place avoiding tires that weren't too cautious, Nick and I quickly moved into rescue mode. We noticed a collar, so we knew she wasn't just an alley cat...she was someone's kitten. She ran away from me, but Nick was able to get her to come to him from the drain she lept into. Once he had her in his arms, there was not a tag on her collar!! (That did make us a little angry. - The first thing we got Ash was a collar with his name and our numbers on it.) She had also been COMPLETLY declawed!!! That really made Nick upset because the back declawing is supposed to be a very bad operation for cats. We soon discovered that this is the sweetest cat ever. She purred and rubbed up on us and was just SO personable!!! I warned Nick that we had to put up a found poster and an ad on craigslist, so not to get too attached just in case. Because she is so nice, I cannot imagine that she doesn't have a family who wants her back and I would be crushed in a reverse situation.....but within the last 24 hours we just really ....became attached. Nick didn't like that I was calling her meow meow to avoid "naming" her so he said if by chance her owners didn't claim her, then he'd want to call her lois....so she is named. We discovered she loves people (and is adjusting to Ash) and she loves her tummy to be rubbed...Ash likes her, but keeps wanting to play rough with her so when he starts jumpin she gets startled....So we believe that they'll get along....That's our problem...we've made future plans for her...I'm putting the ad up tonight, but secertly hoping she becomes a member of our family. (...i bought stocking stuff for her...)




Here is her picture...


And as far as the Indecisiveness goes.....Christmas tree....Since we don't have any ornaments or lights we have to construct it from scratch....not sure what theme I want or if I really do want a real one....hmmmm.
