New Beginnings

This post has been a long time coming and I should apologize, but my day job has completely taken over my life for the last couple of months. That’s tax season for you and fortunately, there’s only one week left! And while I’ve been in virtual hibernation, we’ve had some interesting changes…

While of course we still miss Arty intensely, our little family has a couple of new additions. Meet Virgil and Iris!Cats

Is that not the cutest picture you’ve ever seen? As you can see, our new friends are getting along very well. They’re very cuddly both with us and with each other.

VirgilVirgil is about 2 years old and a very dapper, very talkative little gentleman. I don’t think I’ve ever met a cat this chatty. It’s almost as though he navigates the house with echolocation. Adorable.

IrisIris is about a year and a half old and has a wild half-feral sensibility. Terribly sweet, terribly spazzy. They weren’t a bonded pair when we found them at the shelter – they were even in separate rooms. Walker and I simply fell in love with both of them and couldn’t bring ourselves to decide between them. So…we just brought them both home!

They’ve yet to make a friend of grumpy little Branwen, but this surprises no one. She’s got an attitude of titanic proportions. We’re hopeful that once we’re more available for supervised togetherness, she’ll eventually grow to tolerate her new siblings. Or maybe not. Only time will tell 😊
