So if you follow me on twitter, you might have noticed the abundance of cat-related tweets of late. It all started on a dark and stormy night a few weeks ago *dum dum duuuuum*…
Ok, it wasn’t stormy, and it was just dark coz it was night, but it was rather cold. We heard a very loud high-pitched meowing outside, naturally ran out to go see what it was, and low and behold, a tiny little baby kitty witty all by his little lonesome selfness! Seemed pretty clear that she’d been abandoned. So of course I had to take her in and be her new momface 🙂
I’ve been wanting a kitten for ages, but wasn’t going to get one because I’ve got 2 cats already, one of which (whom?) is very very possessive and jealous, so I didn’t want to upset him. He’s barely on friendly terms with the other cat, and they’ve been together over 5 years now! But this was a whole new situation. You could even call it a life and death situation, maybe. So I kept the new little critter, and called her Ninja because of her colour and her ability to blend into shadowy or dark-coloured spaces and unexpectedly pop up everywhere. Behold the glory of her unbearable cuteness below. I swear kittens could take over the world if they wanted, just by using their powers of cuteness.
Are you swooning yet? Just look at that crazy kitten-attack-mode face at the bottom! Love it! <3
I’ve learnt that it’s pretty much impossible to take decent photos of all-black cats without flash, unless you wants lots of photos with vaguely cat-shaped empty black spaces.
Next up is Salem. (At this point I must mention that Salem is about 11 years old, so his name is an unfortunate remnant of a much younger, misguided me.) I love this cat so much, it’s sometimes worrying. He is so beautiful, photos don’t do him justice. I shouldn’t have favourites, but I’d be lying if I said he isn’t my favest cat in the world ever. His long fur coat is so thick and gorgeous, and he’s got so much personality <3
This is what Salem and Garfield thought about the arrival of the little Ninja orphan. I think those facial expressions say it all. But they’re getting used to her… slowly.
So much cat love! The kitten is also my excuse behind the lack of posts lately 😛
