The other day, leaving work around midnight, I stumbled on this little thing crying all by her lonesome in the parking lot. With the help of some coworkers and some chicken, I was able to catch her. The vet estimates she’s about 4 weeks old, and diagnosed her FeLV/FIV negative and heart-shatteringly adorable. Not including her tail, she amounts to about seven inches of fluff.
Unfortunately, as the forces of physics are continually lobbing cats at me, I’m at full capacity and will have to find a home for her. Until she’s at least old enough to have her first round vaccinations, though, I’ll have the pleasure of fostering her.
(For some reason, the purple scrunchy is her favorite thing. She gallops and bunny-hops all over the house with it.)
The babeeeEEE—she—ohmigod DO WANT.
Day 46: what makes you smile
All sorts of things.
Kittens and birds being cute.
When a cat decides it wants to bless me with it’s presence in my lap. Especially when the cat is a complete sweetheart and soft as fuuuuck.
When I hear really good orchestral music that features cellos and violas.
Tyrion Lannister’s quips in Game of Thrones and other such snarkery.
When assholes and villains get what’s coming to them.
Waking up slowly after sleeping in on weekends, very cozy.
The smell of an old bookstore, especially this one downtown that has books piled to the ceiling in clever and interesting ways. Not even really sorted. It’s a treasure hunt.
Small gifts or surprises, even if it’s just someone bringing me a mug of tea or an unexpected tickle.
When my mom tries to swear without swearing (the outcomes are hilarious!)
My baby sister being incredibly clever.
My baby brother being goofy and weird in an admirable way.
My younger sister being amazingly silly with her game characters, and overly vengeful. (“You broke my last lockpick! Fuckin’ door! FUS! FUS! FUS RO! -hacks to testing level, takes unbreakable lockpick- YOU’RE GONNA TAKE IT AND LIKE IT!”)
The boyfriend wrapping his arm around me while we sleep and other silly things he does during the day. He’s the major offender when it comes to sudden tickles and unexpected goofness.
Terrible anime (and other awesome shows) with friends. The commentary’s the best, whether it’s “Dear god, WHYYY?” or “That’s a panty shot. Take a sip.” or “GotDAMM, lookit dem hips! Jesus, Starscream.”
