We have a new member of our family.. I have had a feeling that I was going to be getting another cat.. we’ve always been a two dog, two cat house and there have been free kitten signs going up all over the little town outside of Ann Arbor I live in… but each time I’ve driven by I have thought no, there is going to be a kitty that needs me.
Thursday night Jason, Anne and I met for their engagement session (oh man just wait – what fun and what GREAT pictures I cannot wait for the wedding and for Anne and Jason to move back to town!!) and as the sun was setting I found the perfect little hill with the sun setting and the clouds being just right to shoot the last image of the evening.. we stopped the car and from the bushes came the prettiest little poor starving young cat, maybe five months old, I have ever seen. She mewed piteously and rolled about at our feet as we finished up. “If you can just wait a few more moments.” I told her “You will come home with me.” The only house anywhere was desperately up for sale (please buy me) the sign said and no sign of humans anywhere. Poor Scout (I named her immediately upon her hopping in the car with Anne) obviously hadn’t eaten in, well maybe more then a week she is all skin and bones. Anne and Jason were wonderful and understood me not giving them proper hugs goodbye as Scout was already ensconced in my lap and I called Sean on the way home to give him the news (as always he was understanding and just like me cannot turn away something that is in need.)
She is fitting in mostly well with the other beings in the house :) Loki is a teasing her a bit and she tends to swat first ask questions later BUT she isn’t using any major claws so I think we’re out of any worry that we’ll have any trouble
and she most perfectly is sitting on the edge of my desk so I can pet her with one hand but keep processing with the other!
Have a lovely weekend everyone (more sessions up soon! promise)
