Ohhh man we are so close to getting this cat! Yuko used our buddy L's method of rough cat-petting to give the cat a test run. We went to the shelter on Thursday and met a bunch of cats. One of them was super friendly, and I have a soft spot for black cats because they're often glossed over either because 1. people are superstitious or 2. because the shelter is full of them, they're seen as generic - a self-fulfilling prophecy. Anyway! This cat came in the day before with 5 other adults and 11 kittens - 17 cats total!
Hey everyone - I ran a little late setting this up, but here's the eBay auction for the new full-color original:
Going to IKEA is a little like going to grown-up Disneyland, but I have a set amount of time I can spend there before getting fried out. I have the same problem at malls, and encountered the same thing at Honest Ed's, a huge discount store in Toronto (you might recognize it from Scott Pilgrim - and while we're talking about SP, there's no exaggeration about that crazy ass moose clock - it's a horror). I have trouble filtering - basically I get mallsick. Anyway!
Hey guys and gals! John is full of johnisms, and we endeavour to share as many of them as we can with you.
Let me just say, thank you all for sharing your pet stories! It's going to take me a day or two to catch up on all of them, but we think it's really cool that you guys all took so much time on your stories. Stories, we like 'em.
Trying to get approved to meet this cat turned into a quest of greater proportion than we had ever dreamed of! From what I understand, most people tend to just walk into a shelter and walk out with a cat, which feels pretty ideal. What're your pet-getting stories? Nice and easy? Horror-story? We're still deciding whether or not to adopt this bitey little gal.
