it was love at first sight! we've looked at hundreds of cats and for some reason john was infatuated with this picture of kati. he took it upon himself to get in touch with her family, and now she's a part of ours! (kati is a 3 year-old gray tabby mix. her family was thai and her name means coconut.=)
we picked her up tuesday night and she's adjusting wonderfully. when it was time for her to come home with us, she actually walked into the cat carrier! from the moment kati stepped foot in the door she's been actively exploring, from the highest basement rafters to the lowest nooks and crannies. after five days of killing us with cuteness, she's officially the new queen of the house.=)
kati is so sweet and playful! she looks so much like the madj that i do believe they are distant cousins.=) we've played for hours but she really wants to go outside, so we're going to work on getting her ready for walks on a leash. apparently you can't just slap on a collar and take them out like you would with a dog, though we haven't tried yet. do any of you take your cats for walks?
