EVEN MORE BREAKING NEWS: Salem’s name has been changed. She is now Pagan.
And my sister got a kitten on the same day. Neither of us knew the other was getting one! So they now have Porter.
Darling Husband has caved in come up with the best idea: get the kids (and the dogs) a kitten. Our other cat, Kimba, came to us in the middle of a snowstorm in 2001 and stayed. He was in indoor and an outdoor cat and on June 12, 2008, he made sure to come home to die.
We were all very sad, but how could we ever replace him? He was the perfect cat. And DH, who isn’t exactly a cat lover, tolerated him. Even liked him. And Kimba liked him too.
But another cat wasn’t happening.
Or so we thought.
So, today, with DH’s blessing, kids and I went to the local SPCA and found our new family member:
Salem. She’s two and half months old and utterly adorable.
And in a weird twist of fate (or spooky paranormal coincidence if you’re me, a paranormal writer), Salem was born on the one year anniversary of Kimba’s death.
Almost like he picked her out for us. 🙂
