Steven's Feline Friday... Oops We Did It Again!

"There is one order of beauty which seems made to turn heads. It is a beauty like that of kittens or very small downy ducks making gentle rippling noises with their soft bills, or babies just beginning to toddle."

-T.S. Eliot

Introducing Dylan, as himself! LOL. Yes, it's true, Alan and I made the wacky decision to adopt a second kitten. Why you ask? Well, see, Hendrix was lonely for feline company. Mommy's legs made great scratching posts, but her tights weren't much fun to climb! Especially when she squealed! LOL. Just joking there, actually we had planned to adopt two kittens all along, but after a really bad experience at a local shelter, one I will never forget or forgive, we changed our minds and settled in with our new baby Hendrix. But in this ever changing world we live in, fate decided to step in an unite us we our new orange baby Dylan. :)

How did we find Dylan? Well, the phone rang early last Wednesday morning, it was Donna, from Dr. B's office, and she said there was a little orange kitty who had been through a traumatic experience, and he was all alone in the world. LOL. Well, I am paraphrasing, but basically Ms. D, who had helped Hendrix find us, had an orange kitten for us, if we were interested. Hmmmm... was I interested? You bet! It was a sunny day, the election was a landslide for Obama, democrats were very close to taking a 2/3 majority in the senate, and I slept better the night before then I had since the Clinton years! LOL. Holy cow... the planets have aligned! Yes, give me that cat! Tee Hee.

Dylan has a story, and I will tell it next week. I have been so cat heavy lately on Ellipsis that I bet you think I have gone all things cats, so don't worry I am not going to only speak about felines, I have plenty to say about politics, and humor, and cooking, and holiday madness, and general madness, and photography, so please don't go running from my blog in a fit of cat allergies, there's more to come I promise!

Now, this is an entry for Steven's Feline and Furball Friday, because Friday is the day for pets! Go post your own pet photo and play along. It's fun!

Hmm...I guessed right! After you said big news was coming, I guessed another kitten. :) Good for you. :) Phinney

The only thing better than one kitten is two! Congrats on little Dylan -- he is adorable. I, too, had guessed that this might be your big surprise.

I love Hendrix's story in your last entry and I look forward to hearing Dylan's when you post it.

(I can't believe I'm actually going to be able to post a comment -- that is a first for a while.)

Hey Carly, way to go! Dylan.. I love the name! I wrote last week about a cat that stole our hearts, you may enjoy it. I am not quite sure, I think I was driving some of my daily readers nuts, I wrote it in three installments, let me know what you think:)

IndigoSunMoon said...

Oh Carly! He looks just like my GB (Golden Boy) did when he was a baby! And Hendrix and he are going to have a wonderful life together with you and Alan. I'm glad you adopted them both! It's a little more work, but double the joy.
Love you!
